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.

I was fortunate enough to have been taught by highly qualified English and Science teachers from freshman year until recently (senior year). The only thing I would suggest improvement in is the school's math department. This is the first year I have been taught by an extremely effective math teacher- one of the only good reputable math teachers at the school. But, even the least effective teachers at the school- the ones who just leave notes on the board to copy without much else explanation, are very open to answering questions and offering extra help outside of class. The staff is friendly and heavily involved in making the school a better place and creating a positive learning environment. There is no other place I would have rather spent my last four years of secondary education.
Northview is a pretty good school. When I first started there my freshman year I had a great time. I had amazing teachers and I was way more excited about school activities. However, during my four years at Northview, many of those great teacher I had either left for a better job or they were laid off. More than once I have started a class without a teacher and not gotten one until the next semester. Northview is a pretty good school that has some really dedicated teachers and administrators, but it also has some teachers and administrators that really don’t care.
