Northern Lehigh Senior High School is a decent school in an unfortunate area. Hidden in former slate country, it provides a surprising amount of opportunities to otherwise disadvantaged students. The courses are challenging, and there are also chances to take college and/or tech classes while still in high school.

I love that there are so many activities related to the arts, such as choir, band, and theater. The instructors in these departments are very passionate about their students. Everyone is welcome into these departments, and I wish that more people would accept the welcoming. Something that I would like to see different is more of the faculty getting involved to exploit the talents of the students in such programs.
During my sophomore year, I got a severe concussion during gym class. Instead of the school helping me out, they tried covering up that the concussion was their fault and forced me to continue school with a brain injury. Teachers did not accommodate me nor did they support me. Once I recovered things got better. Class options are good but some of the teachers lack the ability to properly teach students.
