My experience at Northern was great! Many of the teachers care about you and if you are honest and do your work many are more than willing to work with you if you need help. If you take a class and it ends up being to hard for you, you can change to another one. The counselors are great, and all three are different so if you don't connect with one your supposed to talk to you can try another. The one thing I would change if I could would be for the teachers to understand us a little more and the 20% of the student body who are not even a little friendly, though the rest are quite nice.

I believe that the Northern York County School Districts has been a wonderful place to improve my academic career. I have learned important lessons that have improved my essay writing, my knowledge about our country, and a new language that will help me if I decide to study abroad in college. The district is a very welcoming and all of the teachers are willing to take time to help you with everything. Many of the teachers are involved in clubs and sports, so we have gotten to know them outside of the classroom. Many times you will even see them at sporting events or concerts, to show their support for the students in the community. One thing that has been the most enjoyable and helpful in our district is our guidance counseling department. Not only do they listen when you are have a problem, but they help you with scheduling issues and college decision making. I cannot express how much this department has helped me, especially this year as I prepare for college.
My experience at the Northern York County School District has been a very good one overall. The teachers work hard in and out of the classroom trying to support every single kid and push them to be the best student and person they can be. The students are all great, too. Everyone is in full support of eachother in and out of school. The school finds ways to make things less stressful for students and break up the monotony of the school year. Administration sets up things like spirit week and pep rallies. The athletics are great at Northern, too. There is a lot of support from the community to all the events. The coaches are very supportive of all the players and push them to their limits so they perform on the field and are prepared for life after athletics. Northern York overall is a very good place to be apart of and I would recommend it to everyone.
