Northwestern Lehigh High School Reviews

The teachers do quite well with "typical" students. If you are high achieving, low achieving or have health issues, the teachers are definitely not accommodating. Part of this is due to the intrusive school Principal that tries hard to protect "her" teachers from having to do any "extra" work (actually educating students that don't fit into the normal box) at the expense of the students. The school was a completely different place under its former leadership - and the change has been quite detrimental.

I love how everyone knows everyone and how close the school is with the community. The sports teams are great and there is multiple clubs to join. The teachers and staff are so kind,friendly, and are always there to help you.
Almost all teachers I had throughout my high school career were thought provoking, engaging, friendly and sincere. Many were genuinely concerned with the status of their students and were actively involved in making sure that as many students as possible succeeded. Not only this but the caliber of education was very high and left me well prepared for post secondary school education.
