Just graduated after being there for two years!!! Before coming to a public school I attended a private school. It was a huge change for me physically and academically it wasn’t challenging. But, they do offer a lot of opportunities academically and the counselors help you through the process of college applications and scholarships!!!!!

Northland was very diverse and the overall experience was great. The school was very spacious and had a lot of different classes to offer. Some classes were college credit classes and offered me an opportunity to get a head start for college. The staff were kind and were very helpful to the students. I was able to enjoy my time at Northland as i got my education and also meet new people and peers. If i could do it all again I would spend all four high school years at Northland. It was on of the best Columbus City Schools in the district and offered lots of different resources for their students.
These are some things i like about northland , a lot of teachers care about you being successful in there class , they want you to do very good so you can pass. There is Tutors if you need extra help , Vcap if u didnt pass the class , we have Hall sweeps so students get to class on time. I know that this isnt the school doing it but i wish that the ACT & SAT wouldnt count towards our grades at the end of the year because, it drops a lot of people GPA. Another thing i wish we didnt have to have a certain amount of points on the ACT or SAT to graduate.
