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 enjoyed their sports program and made many friends through playing! The facilities for the Northview public school system were top notch and made me proud the be apart. The teachers and administration were excellent in preparing us for college and really giving us a sense of what things were going to look like once we graduated high school.
Northview High School is my school of choice. I transferred from a charter school and I will say it was a shock going into a public school. Although, the shock didn't last long. My peers accepted myself along with all other transferred students, so somewhere and someone taught these kids to be including. The school is very proud of the diversity inside its walls, and I will say there is a large mixture or races, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and so on. Northview had a recent renovation and almost all the technology in the building was upgraded or replaced which is a huge plus to us students that rely on all things technology to get us through our classes. Speaking on that, I believe most of the time the teachers turn us loose on the Internet to learn the criteria instead of sitting us down and teaching us or even showing a physical, in the same room example. Overall Northview High School is a pretty solid school; nothing is ever perfect, but they do try.
