Niles North High School Reviews
I absolutely loved Niles North! As a musician, it was a wonderful place that helped me hone my skills. Being a public school, I think Niles North could measure up to any performing arts high school. The faculty is very knowledgable and is always willing to help you with whatever you need, whether it be music or just to talk about anything. Niles North is also a very diverse school. I felt there was a good amount of representation of all races and because of that, I've always felt safe as a minority in school. I've never had to deal with any sort of bullying or rude behavior throughout my experience at Niles North.
A very diverse school that prides itself as "the United Nations of high schools". Clubs like Dance Marathon show the very best in this school, with students taking initiative to run the club and raise over $80,000 each year for a charity. Dance groups, sports teams, and language/heritage clubs are only some of the extracurriculars offered. AP courses are offered from Freshmen year onwards, and there are a variety of language classes offered. The teachers care about their students successes. It is also very college-focused, offering opportunities for students to explore their college options as early as Freshmen year with college counselors and College night.
I came to Niles North with both Autism and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and worried about what would people think of me based on the way I speak and how I act. However, I was freely welcomed by my teachers even though I have a mental disability. This was the first step to being part of the school community and getting comfortable with the high school environment which was one of the major factors to my success in my academics that also motivated me to gain more supporters who were teachers and counselors that helped me a lot to help me be successful and get into the top civil engineering school in the country, which is the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
