Northwestern Lehigh School District Reviews

I rated this school two stars for a plethora of reasons; one, their diversity at the school is below poor. As Asian American, I was one out of the only two Asian Americans in my entire grade. I did not feel accepted or had a feeling of belonging at this school. Secondly, Northwestern values sports over the arts. This school had a sub par band, no orchestra, and football was the only sport this district had school spirit over. Thirdly, some of the high school teachers, only cared about the syllabus and material at hand. No passion whatsoever. In addition, the teachers only cared about test scores and attendance.

Love the kids--made lots of friends. Teachers aren't bad. Some you wish you could have every year. I wish there were more languages offered (Italian please!). And I wish there was more of an arts presence. I did choir and drama all 4 years. But I'd love more dramatic, vocal and visual arts. My school did prepare me for the outside world--getting a resume together, preparing for a job interview and looking for colleges that matched my dreams. Still, when I graduate I'll have good memories.
Northwestern Lehigh High School prepares students for the next stage of their life; whether it be college, technical studies, or the work force students are ready and able to be high achievers. The high school has a long standing history of having multitalented student athletes, who are also high achievers in the classroom. In addition Northwestern students have some of the highest SAT and standardized test scores in the Lehigh Valley, but the school greatly lacks diversity in the student and faculty.
