Northern Highlands was a place where everyone was extremely competitive. The teachers were very good at preparing students for the next level classes but it was always about whats next and the future. Everyone there, the staff, was always trying to help the students in any way they could which gave the school a good atmosphere. The only thing that I would change is the way some teachers teach their students. Every student learns differently and most teachers that I had at this school taught the same way, they would just stand in front of the class and lecture. Some students need interactive lessons, some need visuals.
I am a graduate of NHRHS. The school was fantastic all around. Academics, sports, activities, clubs, teachers, facilities and everything ! Highly recommend anyone to attend if they can!
