My experience at northern highlands regional high school was wonderful! The teachers are so understanding and truly want their students to succeed. The school had a decent amount of clubs and activities to join. It was easy to make friends because everyone is so welcoming and down to earth. The school sprit was one of my favorite parts. Students would come together to cheer for the sporting events and school plays.

I have had a pretty great experience at Highlands! All I wish is that the environment at the school wasn't so competitive, both academically and in extracurriculars.
Northern Highlands has a large options of classes, ranging from levels of difficulty to different areas of interest. This school truly has a class for everyone. There are also many inspiring teachers that push their students to succeed while challenging them at the same time. If you are lucky to get one of these teachers, in my experience, they will not only teach you the subject you need to learn, but you will also grow to enjoy the subject even more. I believe Northern Highlands truly grooms their students and prepares them for their college studies.
