The overall experience that you may get at this school really depends on what you put into it while you're there. Yes, there are some annoying students and less-than-great teachers, but that shouldn't stop you from doing well. If you really want something, you have to work for it. Northview is a good place to settle into and it isn't difficult to get used to. There are plenty of diverse clubs for things ranging from gaming to animals to SGA. And while it isn't a perfect school, it is a place of opportunity

I loved all the choices students had when it came to classes. Whether they wanted general, honors, or AP course, Northview has some of everything! Because of these options, I graduated with several college credits, such as calculus, chemistry, and English! I also had several teachers and administration who generally cared about me as a student and wanted to see me succeed! Although, some of the teachers and even administration, such as the principal and vice principal, did pick favorites who were allowed to get away with breaking some rules that other students were not allowed to.
My overall experience at Northview is okay. I haven't learned a single thing in science class since the 8th grade. And the cafeteria food is awful. On a positive note, the teachers and counselors are really nice and good at making one feel welcome. They are pretty good about looking out for their students. Northview is also pretty good at some sports, including soccer, softball, tennis, swimming, and wrestling.
