Northmont High School Reviews

I just finished junior year. There are many things I like about NHS. Number one is the myriad of classes that are available to take. There’s a lot of fine arts classes and electives, like photography, drawing, ceramics, band, choir, orchestra, engineering, culinary, and more. There’s many sports & clubs as well, varying from volunteer work to social groups to a capella and jazz band. There are many honors classes that have very competent teachers that want to see you succeed. However, there are also many honors and average academic teachers that do not put forth much effort in their jobs and do not care about their students. There is a lot of homework if you take honors and/or AP classes. In my opinion, homework is not needed daily unless it is a math course, but I would get homework that took more than four hours to do everyday. Also, if you are vegetarian, there are not many lunch options to buy. It’s easier to pack a lunch. Microwaves/fridge are unavailable to common students.

I’ve been attending Northmont City Schools since first grade. I’m a junior in High School and I’m proud to say that I will be graduating from Northmont in 2021. Northmont has opened up many opportunities for colleges, military, career tech, specialized classes, and clubs for me to join. Northmont has helped me prepare for my future and find my roll in life. I’ve made friends with a very diverse group, ranging all the way from kids in Europe who have come here for the exchange program. Every year I’ve bonded with fellow teachers and students.The memories I’ve made here have been unforgettable and the experience that I’ve gained will serve me well for a lifetime.
Northmont High School is a amazing school. The school offers many opportunities for many students. They offer different types of classes you can take specifically for your interest, along with many extra-curriculars for the students to join. They have a very friendly staff who is determined to help their students and other staff members.
