The community is very good. The academics could definitely use improvement and some of the teachers are lazy. However, there are many stellar teachers who are producing passionate young students that are prepared for college. The school spirit is very big at Northview. There's no better place!

I love the teachers and staff at the high school. They are very friendly and work with you to help with anything you need. The "new" part of the school is fantastic with renovations that brought it up to speed with the rest of the generation. The "old" part of the school often struggles with different things such as temperature regulation and occasional bathroom floods. Overall, my experience has been great.
Northview High school has yet to disappoint me. It's a great environment to be around including the students and teachers. The teachers are highly educated and one specific english teacher of mine just got her doctorate degree. I am proud to be apart of this school but like anything and anywhere, nothing is perfect. Northview ha it's imperfections. But it's those imperfections and our diversification that keeps us united. Our moto, "preparing students for life's next step," clearly portrays Northview excellence and readiness.
