The school provides many different AP and IB courses, which gives students the choice of what types of subjects they want to learn about. There is also access to more hands-on classes available through the Livonia technical center, though I feel it was not advertised enough. Overall though, the atmosphere is welcoming and the school is in great condition!

NHS offers plenty of academic and extracurricular opportunities to its student. From AP and IB classes to sports and literally over a hundred clubs, success isn't hard to find if someone really wants it. For the most part, the teachers and counselors are dependable and effective in teaching. The school is well-funded and offers plenty of resources for various academic endeavors. Student life is also energetic and fun, from pep rallies to dances to spirit weeks. However, Northville is a privileged, upper middle class community and it's sometimes frustrating finding cultural, perspective, and racial diversity besides white and Asian.
I enjoy going to Northville High School. My first impressions of this school have been greatly positive. Teachers take great pride in teaching and preventing cheating, and are happy to help. The classes are laid out in a nice manner over two levels. During the three various lunches, it tends to get very crowded. This is expected in such a large school, but it is tough to purchase lunch on some days if you’re at the other end of the school. There is (literally) hundreds of clubs and various sports always going on. You’ll definitely find something you like. Bullying is a rare occurrence at this school as far as I know. I personally have not seen it anywhere. If you drive yourself to school as an upperclassman, the parking lot is a nightmare in the afternoon. Bring the older car that can get scratches/small dents, honestly.
