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.
Northern Valley Old Tappan is a exceptional high school. The Teachers are awesome. There are 4 towns that come here, most of which are from my town of Old Tappan. There is a lot of school spirit . We have many different clubs and are even able to start our own. A few of our clubs focus on charity work and no one is turned away. There is a tremendous amount of schoolwork that has most definitely prepared me for college. Everyone says college will be easy compared to what our school. There are cliques but every student can find a place for themselves. The students are very open to different types of people and does not ostracize or make fun of anyone "different"
