Being at Northport High School for almost 4 years now, I can see a bright future in front of me. Everyone in this school are freindly, kind, and supportive- including teachers, councilors and other pears. There's not one day where I didn't want to be here. NHS has SO many electives, clubs and sports teams(Robotics Club, Fashion Club, Art Club, Spanish Club, Jazz Club, Tour Choir & every sport you can think of- Badminton, Cross Country, Swimming, Football, Basketball and more)- you will never get bored! Also, it's so easy to make friends here, there is always somebody just like you! The only complaint I have is that the school lunch isn't the greatest. Overall, I love this school and will miss it next year but I hope future students will have a great time!

Northport High School definitely has plenty of opportunities for education, socialization, experience, and growth. However, a large population of staff at this school feels entitled. The school has had many issues over the years including lack of parking space, unstable regulation of student freedom, and even neglect of students in need.
It provided excellent opportunities to take advanced classes to increase your chances to get into college and prepare you for the real world. Also, it allowed for so many different extracurricular activities that allowed you to develop as an individual and also become a better team player. Overall, it was an extremely positive experience.
