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!
I have attended Northgate from Kindergarten through my senior year and I think it is a great school district. It often gets a bad reputation, but overall it's a pretty good school. We are a small district, so everyone knows everyone, which comes with good and bad. Although the academics aren't the best, Northgate is very big on extracurricular activities such as sports, theater, art, and after school clubs. Northgate comes with a good environment and I have always felt safe and included in all events.
