Northgate School District Reviews

Northgate school district is a boutique walking district that allows students the unique opportunity to participate in multiple, varied interests rather than specialize in one sport, hobby, or academic area. Student, faculty, and parent feedback is easy to communicate and the administration is responsive. The socio-economic diversity is beneficial for all families in the district, while the communities of Bellevue and Avalon reap the benefits of thriving, beloved schools to rally around. Truly a unique gem in the center of a large metropolitan area!

Northgate School District provides students with small class sizes, a friendly, caring environment, and an excellent academic program. The parents and teachers are extremely involved and everyone looks out for one another. I encourage anyone considering moving into the area to visit the school and see for yourself!
We adore this small, close knit community with its caring schools. Everyone knows everyone and watches out for each other’s kids. Teachers and administrators are part of the community and fully invested in the future of their students. Our kids are engaged in so many STEM programs through grants and programs through colleges such as CMU, our new Maker Spaces, and so much more. Everyone raves about the giant school districts just to the north of us, but they are missing out on a gem of a district here. Both parents in our household have higher level degrees in education and could not be happier with Northgate. We also love that the socioeconomic and cultural diversity of the district equips our children to love a world where not everyone is just like them.
