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 want to start by saying how thankful I am to have this school, as many around the world do not have access to one! There are tons of course and extra-curricular options at school. I notice that many teachers stay on their phones at their desk and do not teach much. One thing I do not admire in a lot of our teachers is the way they teach and the way they talk to students academically. Several staff discourages students like one of the directors who met me. I thought he would encourage me and facilitate my goals. Instead, he questioned my reason for taking AP Courses and he essentially discouraged me from taking AP courses. When I mention my goal to go to an IVY League, my counselor brings up other colleges and tries to redirect my goals instead of help fuel them, and some teachers are too lenient. There is not much bullying, our school is split into 2 buildings where students have to cross out in the open, and doors are unlocked a lot, and lunches could be healthier. Overall good.
The population is diverse with suburban, rural, and military kids. The staff is fairly proactive in stopping bullying and accepting of diversity. Teachers will have opportunities to work with administration, unions, and students. The pay is good in the beginning, stagnates for 12-15 years, but increases substantially if you stick it out. This bubble is hard on staff, so min-career teachers sometimes jump ship. There seems to be less student violence, confrontations, defiance than other area districts. It's not "perfect," and stuff happens as it does in any school, but the stress level is lower here. The paperwork in the beginning of the year is a bit overwhelming. As a student, you'll meet a lot of different kids of all kinds of backgrounds and cultures. Farmer, military, LGBT, Arty, suburban, special needs, etc. Teachers might not catch all your problems, but when you share your issue, they will get right on it. You have a lot of opportunities here should you choose to take them.
