Northbridge High is a small school where all the grades are familiar with one another and our teachers stick with u for all four years. It fits the small town, small school spirit but the connections in that school have exceeded many expectations. As a high school senior, with no previous work experience, I got to intern in a law office for mental health patients. I got to work personally with the lawyers and go to court with them and watch them battle the cases I helped with. Northbridge may be a small school but the people inside spend their days creating so much more for us students than we ever thought was possible for teenage kids.

My time at Northbridge High School has been very fun for the most part. I have been involved in many things and try to make the best out of all of my time spent in this district. Teachers at Northbridge High are very understanding and will always do their best to help their students succeed. I have played field hockey and softball for all of my years at Northbridge and I have loved to see my coaching staff change and develop strongly during the years. My peers at Northbridge seem to be like all peers at every school. Competitive with each other but also willing to talk and be there for you anytime of the day. You can always find someone to lean on if you are in need. Although friends will always be changing, I know that I have found true friends that will last a lifetime, relationships with teachers that I will take with me to always push myself, and memories that will truly last a lifetime from my time at Northbridge High School.
They offer a lot of class choices, especially in their electives and AP classes. The teachers are very understanding and easy to bond with. The administration does not take much seriously, so if you are faced with conflict, your best bet is to talk to your favorite teacher about it.
