Northern Lehigh School District Reviews

Northern Lehigh is a very safe district. It is very small, which allows for a close knit community. The resources and athletics are limited due to the size of the district, however, it allows for the opportunity to be involved in as many things as you'd like. Rarely is anyone cut or turned down from participating in something. Everyone knows everyone! I believe this is a great district to raise your children in.

I enjoyed most of my school experience. Many of the problems that I had (such as outdated science rooms) has been updated and improved, as well as technological advances. Recently I found out that next year, students will be receiving school laptops which is great.
Overall, it’s a decent school district that is fixing many of the problems.
I absolutely loved attending Northern Lehigh School District. My experience with the faculty, other students, and the facility were more than I expected. The school is smaller and less diverse. I enjoyed the part of it being smaller because the faculty had the opportunity to work with each student individually towards their involvement and goals in this high school experience and beyond. The only thing that I disliked was the amount of diversity and the lack of funding for sports as well as other activities, groups, and clubs. I played 2 sports (basketball and Baseball) and although I loved my coaches, my team, and our spirit it was a little embarrassing that other schools that we competed against had funds to provide their team with some perks and extras. We had to raise money for things, but still never received those types of perks. Besides that the academics and classes that were offered were beyond my expectations. I learned so much.
