I love Northrop because there are so many opportunities to get involved. Many different clubs, sports, and activities are available so every student has a place to fit in. There is a great amount of diversity. Most of the teachers are very nice and the administration is willing to help. I recommend it 100%!

Northrop High School has always been my "home away from home" type of place. I'm so involved in after school activities with the music department such as show choir that I spend as much time there as I do at home. My friends and I always have a good time and love our music and theatre department at our school. But on the downside, I was bullied most of my time at the school. It made me feel very depressed and lonely. The music department always brought my spirits back up when I needed it most though. Not only was that my "home away from home" but it was also considered my 2nd family. So if you ever want a place to feel welcome and love music, Northrop is the way to go.
Being a former Northrop High School student is great considering the hard work and dedication the school put forth to help students excel in all aspects of their life. From having outstanding counselors, amazing extracurricular activities, as well as a great environment, Northrop High School was always the school for me. Of course all schools have improvements to make, but knowing that my school's main priority was to help us exceed our abilities for the greater good, has made me forever grateful to have spent my high school career there.
