Northwestern Lehigh School District as a whole is just such an amazing district and truly takes the time to help their students with anything needed. I personally started dealing with bad mental health issues and every staff in that district when out of their way to make sure I was getting the help and support I needed during this tough time in my life. Every teacher is incredible at what they do, they all take the time to give extra help and go over things with you, whatever you need. As a senior, Northwestern really helps to make sure you are ready to make the massive transition of leaving high school and starting the next chapter of your life, whether it’s college, military, work, etc. they push nothing on their students and support you in whichever path you choose to take. The school offers many different clubs for students and takes pride in the programs they offer.

Great school with lots of great staff and community. Although plenty of people were unhappy with administrations inability to conduct a memorable graduation for the Class of 2020, still a wonderful school.
Northwestern was the perfect high school experience for me. My class was around 180 students, which allowed me to really get to know a large portion of my peers. The teachers at the high school are generally fantastic. With only a few exceptions, I'd say each class proved to provide value in one way or another. There is a really strong community centered around the district and it always feels like home.
