Niwot High School Reviews

My experience at Niwot High School mostly had to do with self-growth and discovering more about who I was in a larger, more varied setting than what I was used to in middle school. Niwot was a large enough size that I was able to learn more about myself as a person, but not so large that I lost myself in the crowd, which was definitely beneficial. The academics at Niwot are top notch, although there does seem to be a perpetuated idea that IB students are inherently smarter or more hardworking than AP or traditional kids. Niwot athletes are also great examples of student athletes, excelling both on the field/court/track and in academics. I myself was an IB student athlete, and I feel that the faculty and staff were all really understanding of us. Overall, I feel that Niwot's IB program really prepared me for college!

Going to Niwot is the best decision I have ever made! The teachers, people, staff are all very friendly. It was very easy to make friends and I found myself fitting in. The education is phenomenal, all thanks to our wonderful principal who cares for the school and the students in it.
When I first came to Niwot, I was coming from a non-feeder school. I didn't really know anyone, besides about 4 other students who came from my middle school. The first thing I noticed was the diversity. I was shocked to see students who weren't Hispanic or white- the main races who attended my middle school. There were African Americans, Asians, and one other Native American student. Everyone was super welcoming and was always open to meeting new people. Not only was the diversity refreshing, but the academic atmosphere was very different from your average high school. Sometimes popular high schoolers have the stereotype of being excellent in sports, and less in academics. There was always the negative stereotype of being a "nerd". Our school values academic excellence high above anything else. As well as home to extreme academic achievement, we also are home to state champion athletes. Niwot High School was truly a place that I felt I fit in, and created meaningful relationships .
