My experience at Northern has had good options for students such as college options and job readiness outside of Northern’s walls. However northern tends to be subpar on preparing students for college with the school walls and creating a welcoming environment for all students, leading us to be have issues with diversity. The school recently got a bond to create a better learning environment and implemented student lead changes to create a more welcoming environment. However, these changes are new and Northern still has a lot of work to do.

It's a very nice school and I really like the fact that there's teachers who care about each and every student. Some improvements I'd like to see are the school lunches, prepping students for college/university, and homework assignments. With better lunches, there won't be as many students trying to sneak off campus to buy food from other places since this is a closed campus. Our college adviser had to leave early so it seemed hard for me to get all the information that I needed. As for homework, some teachers give us time-consuming homework that seemed unnecessary and the extra time could've been spent on other things so that it all balances out.
I like how the teachers are easy to get along with for the most part. The administration needs to pull their heads out of their bums, seeing as a lot of people smoke unpunished in the bathrooms and the admins know about it. The school needs better curriculum and more actually CARING staff who CARE about their jobs. Counselors shouldn't be telling students who have issues to "go away", "I'm busy", "you're just paranoid", "you're just trying to get out of class", or sending students who are in the middle of a PANIC ATTACK back to class when they're not ready. I've experienced this personally and found going to the Assistant Principal better than going to my counselor because the Asst. Principal actually helps. I also have a friend whose experienced crappy treatment from the counselors.

I'm not involved in any clubs except Mock Trial and Renissance Club. I wish there was a Powerlifting Team, and more interesting clubs.
