Northern Valley Regional High School - Old Tappan Reviews
NVOT has great resources and teachers that opens up their students to diverse opportunities. They have many experts that would help students go through complicated college application process, not only by conducting numerous seminars, but also having many one-on-one meeting with the students. Academically as well, NVOT provides students with the best possible environment through various AP courses, tutoring, workshops and more!
Coming from an immigrant family, all my parents wanted for me to do was go to school and learn more than they could. At Old Tappan, I was able to receive one of the best educations in the state and my area. I enjoyed all the classes I attended, feeling happy with both the content and my teachers. I felt as if the staff was always there and cared for the students, and gave them more time than was necessary, just to help. Aside from academics, the student body was amazing. The school has such a sense of unity and pride in being good at sports, academics, and more. There always was endles oppertunities for everyone, reguardless of interests. There was always something for everyone.
Towards the latter half of my high school career the school put forth a very large amount of resources towards improving and expanding the engineering classes in terms of scope and number. In addition, the school spent a very large sum of money to build a new engineering space that contains several 3D printers, a laser cutter, a CNC machine, and electrical work stations. This new emphasis on STEM- related education has greatly improved the academic experience at my high school. The school's culture, once dominated by athletics and the sports program, now reflects higher intellectual standards.
