Northview Public Schools Reviews
Overall I loved going to school at Northview! I was new my freshman year and I didn't know anyone. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. We even have clubs that it's sole purpose is to promote talking to peers and spreading diversity. At this school the 'popular' kids are the ones that reach out and get involved that make everyone feel included. This is at least how I have experience this school, I know some may disagree with me. Everyone is going to see something from their point of view and no one person's point of view will be the same or the right one. Northview knows this and tries its best to embrace everyone's point of view.
I couldn’t have met better teachers or students anywhere else in the world, the teachers are strict, but not so strict that you can’t socialize, the kids I met, best people ever, and I couldn’t recommend any other school to go to. I was a student by the way, people gave me a few nicknames too, to make school a little more fun, like Joe Mama!
What I like most about Northview public schools is the teachers structured teaching specifically to teach other students about real world situations. Such as taking respponsibility, giving effort to something we as students aspire to accomplish, as well as finding something we are passionate about and finding a career that we love. My experience at the school was pretty verstile since there were always people moving in and out of the district. I was able to meet people from germany or mexico or even kids i'd never met that lived on my block. I found that I could get out of my comfort zone within the school because of the diversity that was absorbed in our community. To be honest I wouldn't change that for the world because it enabled me to understand someone else's perspective of life and learning that everyone struggles in life. That's when I discovered we could be whatever we wanted even if we didn't believe in it ourselves, we could do it.
