Northgate High School Reviews

Northgate High School is a very welcoming school that allows students to find what they love to do and people who share a common interest. The teachers are excellent and always willing to pt in extra work to help their students fully understand information. Being a student at Northgate, I have been able to participate in sports, choir, leadership and clubs all while getting a good education.
Great teachers, staff, counselors, office administrators, etc. College Career Center is very useful.
my experience at Northgate wasn't bad. good staff and classes (such as the AP and ROP classes I took there). the diversity of the student body could be better, but the overall community was pretty good most of the time, it just felt like we were trapped inside the school because of the no windows.
Northgate High School is a relatively lively school with a welcoming environment. The teachers and staff are great and are usually ready to help when needed.
Overall the school itself isn’t bad. It is known for its students being rigorous and academic, this is not due to the teachers though. It is because the students there are competitive and want to do well. Most teachers are okay and teach decently. However, there are some who just don’t care and students can tell they don’t want to be there. The school also prioritizes sports over the music and drama program. Which is very unfortunate because they are more talented than most of the sports teams.
My experience at Northgate High School was overall very positive. There are a lot of opportunities out there for anyone if you are interested. I was apart of Leadership, participated in sports and multiple clubs. The counselors are willing to help you out if you ask. A lot of useful information in the college and career center if you are willing to look, not a lot of students take advantage of that. I would say overall the teachers expect more from you compared to our neighboring high schools. We are also the only school in the area to do Mock Congress for seniors, think of that what you like.
Northgate is a great school for academically inclined students that like hands on learning. We have many AP and Honors courses available to students as well as numerous clubs. In regards to diversity the school has mainly European and Asian students (diverse in this way but we don't have very many black or latino students)
Northgate has wonderful teachers, great academic and extracurricular activities, and a great community aspect!
Terrible Leadership, mostly bad students, but some people I met were incredible. Honestly, I'd send your kids to a private school.
northgate is an average school. has a variety of classes and teachers. i highly recommend taking spanish classes. the spanish classes have some of the best teachers ever and im sure people will enjoy the classes and the teachers.
I love Northgate High School because it has a variety of clubs and extracurriculars that you can join. By getting involved in Northgate High School, I have made close friendships that will last a life time. Northgate is super inclusive and provides opportunities for all students to meet new people and be who they are meant to be. I have truly grown as a person while attending Northgate High School. Northgate has taught me leadership skills, cooperation, patience, but most importantly, Northgate has taught me to treat others equally. During this fight against racism, Northgate has molded me to be someone who is kind to everyone ... no matter what. I have learned to stand up for what I believe and to not care about what others think about me because it is not worth it. I am more bold and confident than I have ever been before. Northgate has taught me to put others first before myself. By doing so, my life and other people's lives have been enriched.
Unfortunately this School lacks one major thing... DIVERSITY. It is almost impossible to feel welcome in a town and school that does not accept or understand what it is like to be different ( Race, gender, religion etc.) Otherwise, this school would be a dream with it's amazing programs, sports teams and amenities. Go broncos!!
I didn't have a bad experience at Northgate but some of the teachers could have been better in teaching their subjects.
Nothing much, yada yada yada (doing this review for a scholarship only) I hope I get this 500 dollar scholarship.
My time at Northgate wasn't terrible--I'm currently a junior and have had little to no trouble with any specific person or group on campus. The arts department (visual and performing) are amazing, filled with people that support you through your endeavors. There are nasty people, unfortunately, but that's just a reality of life. If you try to avoid them, you'll be able to. The much larger issue that greatly drained the experience is misuse of funding. I'm going to say it: we have the money, we just waste it on football. We've got so many stronger sports teams (e.g. volleyball and water polo), our jazz bands are nationally recognized, and we've had many influential figures come out of other departments as well, and football gets an exorbitant and disproportionate amount in funding despite years of disappointing performance. We've lost faculty members (nearly the drama dept. last year, our APUSH teacher this year!) due to "budget cuts", but it seems more like misuse of available funds.
The community of Northgate High School is very welcoming and kind. Students have great school spirit and teachers do too. In some areas, the doorways can get crowded during passing periods.
I did not know much about Northgate high before being enrolled. I am a huge performing arts student and I was thrilled to know they had choir and dance programs. Dance being one of the best in the county. I always felt safe as well and the people there were for the most part very kind. I love that experience I had at northgate. Administration for the most part is very helpful as I did not find any teacher I found that did not like their job. The extracurricular activities, clubs, and programs though would probably be the best part of the school. It is also in a nice location, in a lovely town.
