Overall, my experience with Northern Lehigh School District has been great. I have received a good education. I also like that this school district is quite small, so more attention can be given to the individual. Also, the schools within the school district are pretty close to one another, so transportation is convenient. I am also grateful that my school has allowed me to go to Lehigh Career and Technical Institute and join the program called Emerging Health Professionals. For people who want to pursue and medical career, this is an amazing opportunity and I am grateful I had the ability to be a part of it. Overall, Northern Lehigh has been a great school and it has helped me to form my future greatly!

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 really enjoyed all the teachers and learning opportunities I was given. The main downside is the other students and sports. It is a very small school so everyone knows everyone if you didn't grow up here and neither did your parents it was hard to play certain sports or be on certain teams. Everything should be based on your own viewing of the school, we all have different experiences.
