Northern Burlington County Regional School District Reviews
I feel Northern Burlington does well at making all students feel welcome and cared for. Whether you are struggling to learn the curriculum, or you aren't getting along with another student, teachers are there to get involved and aid you. My biggest complaint about this school is their lack of communication, and limited flexibility. As a student with medical challenges, I find it difficult to sit in class while in immense pain and discomfort. I am often absent due to doctors appointments and flare ups, and I've spent many of my days in the nurse's office. I have received a 504 plan, but I feel it hasn't entirely helped my circumstance, as very few of my teachers were informed about it. Therefore, I was treated like any other student, and was to take tests in the classroom, as well as having limited restroom access and absences. In the future, I would like to see Northern make a more comfortable environment for those struggling, mentally or physically.
Northern Burlington is a place that I have learned to love. Growing up, I went to a small elementary school, and we always said that the teachers felt more like family than anything. They were there to support our dreams and introduce us to the world. The big jump to middle school was smoothly made thanks to all of the teachers there. However, not that many honors or higher level classes were offered. In high school, the amount of AP and honors classes increased dramatically and included a wide range of subjects. I have been involved in sports all my life, and this district allowed that. Although we don't always have the best teams, there is an opportunity for everyone and the teams feel like family. Northern Burlington provides the small town feel while still allowing for lots of opportunities academically and through extracurricular.
My school has had an excellent impact on me academically, especially in the field of STEM with excellent teachers and resources, although there are changes that need to be made for the benefit of everyone. We have a large number of sports, but it is too heavily focused on football with little attention to others, with soccer, bowling, and others getting very little attention comparatively. The food is very poor but is affordable and sufficient. Alternatively, we do have a great budget set for arts with one of the best band programs in the state, and several options for theater, music theory, and the like.
