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.

Teachers at Northview High School are their to help if students let them do so. The teachers are awesome if students have a good attitude and good communication skills! The curriculum is simple, everyone should know what's expected of teachers as well as parents. The schedules we have are easy to follow day by day. The workload students have aren't as hard, if the students complete work in class.
Overall, Northview is an average high school. I would not rank it above most high schools, but even or less than. The teachers do not teach and the books they're given to teach with are over 10 years old. There are few actual good teachers that prepare us, the students, with the information we need to progress to higher education. It's a good thing they offered Dual Enrollment or my parents would have put me in a private school or sent me to live with my grandparents in Florida to attend high school there. Northview is not a school I would choose to attend or send my future children to.
