A mostly humble, small school which has a great balance of 1-on-1 interaction and group interaction in its learning environments. The facility is typical of a lower-budget school but has its strong points. Many students are taught to welcome diversity and not to discriminate. Overall a surprisingly good experience!

It's not the best school, but it was alright. Many graduates have said that the school did nothing to prepare them for college. Their disciplinary actions are based solely on opinion and once expelled a girl for the sole reason of "making an example of her", but don't expel other kids who do worse. Their education is mediocre, and sometimes it feels as though you're leaving dummer than you came in. I would like to see them work on how they discipline kids, as well as taking more action to prepare their students for college. While I disliked a lot about it they do have great music and theatre programs, though the school barely funds them.
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.
