Northern Burlington County Regional High School Reviews

I liked the clubs, sports and activities I was able to participate in at Northern Burlington. I felt that they were really engaging and allowed people to build strengths physically, mentally, an emotionally. In addition, I enjoyed the music and arts programs that were available at Northern Burlington, because they were always able to showcase the talent that the students at my school have. However, I would change the amount of attention that is being put on sports. Not enough attention is being put on interesting clubs that could help our school improve in different ways. In addition, I wished that the school culture and diversity of our school would improve, because many students seem to have negative attitudes and a lack of optimism. Overall, Northern Burlington is a pretty good school, but I hope that it can improve and become a better school in the future.

I really enjoy how friendly and inclusive the teachers are! They are really amazing and some of my favorite teachers ever have come from Northern. I am so glad I went to this high school. The academics are incredible, but they do not offer as many classes as I would like. I know a lot of other schools have more sports and more AP classes and electives, and Northern is lacking in some of those areas. Overall, it is an amazing school, but it does need air conditioner.
I liked that at northern you had a lot of opportunities. I was Apple to take lots of different electives like music theory , band , art , current issues , psychology. The science department is probably the worst part about the school but the English, math and history departments had some really amazing teachers that really helped me through my time at high school and cared for me and my learning. The best part about northern is that it is a regional school, so after elementary school we were able to meet lots of new people from different towns and learn skills that helped us make new friendships. I think this part was the best because it meant that you had multiple chances to make new friends outside of the people you grew up with.
