Coming from a small school that houses about 400 students total comes with its perks. Everyone knows everyone so there are rarely any times when anyone is left out. The teachers, staff, and coaches truly care about the students and want the best for them. The community is tight-knit and provide us with amazing opportunities. Not only are our sports programs quite successful at the Virginia High School League 1A Division, but our academic programs are superb. Our school provides us students with amazing opportunities such as AP courses and Dual Enrollment courses that partner with our local community college. I cannot imagine my high school experience anywhere else and I will forever be thankful for the experiences that Northumberland High School gave me. Indian pride forever!

More challenging academics, wide spread and class specific(More AP options but also just holding standard classes to a respectable amount of rigor. More encouraged involvement of students in clubs. Lunches that the students will actually eat and not just throw away(one guy actually broke his tooth of eating the school lunch). Treat school as an academic and growth oriented place instead of a time to just discipline students. Discipline is important, but when it comes down to sending a student out of their most difficult class because they were tardy does not seem effective.
Northumberland High School is a close-knit community where the teachers go the extra mile to help their students. Here at Northumberland High School, we learn how to take responsibility for our work and gain a sense of work ethic that includes but isn't limited to integrity, diligence, and perseverance. This high school strives every day to achieve high excellence with each and every student. The students help each other out because we are all apart of a team, trying to succeed together. Personally, during my time at Northumberland High School, I feel that I have gotten the best possible experience public school can provide for me.
