I love the school spirit here at North Ridge High School. My school has a very supportive staff. If there is any problem, you can reach out to any member of the staff and it will definitely be solved. The counselors are very supportive. They want the best for all students. If I could change one thing about my school, it would be a change within the students. There's a lot of racial profiling that goes on within the students, and I am a strong believer in " not judging a book by it's cover ". I would change the way the students feel separated from each other because of race. We should not feel that way. No matter the race, every student should be given a chance, whether the chance is by a teacher or, another student. There is nothing else I would want to change about my school. North Ridge is a great school. It's great to be a jag.

I like the teachers and the football program. I feel that we were not able to participate in field trips or other hands on learning or take advantage of outside resources because of budget restrictions. Overall, great school, great location, great teachers!
When I first came to Northridge, I was shy and had a strict view of the world. After four years at the school, my views on how things are have been broadened. Despite the social and educational challenges everyone faces at the school, I've seen people become better from it. I believe Northridge has the best teachers in the system that will challenge your skills and drive you to do your best. If anything in the school could be changed, it'd be the amount of funding for our art departments, who don't have enough money for their projects, and also are disregarded when it comes to the subpar areas for performances and storage.
