Many of the teachers were amazing and really cared about the students. They were there during lunch or after school to help me if I didn't understand class material. The teachers for AP classes, like AP US History, AP Calculus, and AP Physics, were also very prepared and pushed students to their fullest potential. Although the curriculums were rigorous, the teachers made sure students were well prepared for the AP tests, allowing most to earn high scores on them. Also, the school provides a multitude of language classes for students to take, ranging from Italian to Korean to French. This allowed students to learn what language(s) they truly want to learn and have the opportunity to take classes on languages apart from the popular ones, like Spanish and French.
As an alum of Northern Valley Demarest, I can confidently say that my high school has properly prepared me for college. The academic and social transition was not as difficult as I had initially predicted, and I believe that was due to the academic rigor and diverse student body that was at Northern Valley Demarest. One thing I would like to see change at Northern Valley Demarest is adding a stronger focus on career oriented academic programs. I realized that many of my friends had prior academic coursework, helping them tremendously in their college coursework and figuring out what major they wanted to pursue.
Well, let me start off by saying how complicated my school was. For one, there was no typically bullying. There were rarely any fights (that I know of) and even more rarely were there just people critically insulting others. What my school instead prided upon was the effect of showing off. Social media plays a massive role in our society today but it is especially present in schools. In my school, there are endless pictures and stories of people showing off what they have and what they are doing. Oh, you're going to a party and have to make sure the school knows you are cool and drink? Post some pictures of you drinking! Oh, you're working out and getting those "gains" as they say? Post some pictures and don't forget to flex it off! Oh, you got into a good college by having your family donate massive amounts to the undergrad program? Post some pictures and make everyone feel bad about their colleges! It has come to a point where once you achieve something, the whole school must know.
