I think that Walled Lake Northern is one of the best public high schools in the area. It is well rounded in academics, fine arts, and athletics. Students who attend this school typically score substantially higher than the national average on standardized tests (this year alone, two students received perfect ACT scores!). Not to mention, the band, choir, and orchestra typically receive division one ratings at district festival and are often invited to participate at the state level. The school also has fantastic athletic programs. For example, the girls' hockey team has won state finals multiple times, and the football team has gone to the playoffs almost every year. Overall, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to go to this school.
When I was a sophomore coming into a new high school in a new district I was scared and afraid of the new and foreign surrounding. I was unsure of how the school program would be and unsure if I would make any friends, but it's been two years now and I am a senior at Walled Lake Northern and I couldn't be happier. The people are such genuine caring individuals and the teachers are phenomenal. The teachers treat the students fairly and equally which is very comforting and appreciated. I am involved in NHS, Cross Country, Track, and Musicals which have made my high school years so fun and enjoyable. The food is always a treat, although I wish there were a few more healthy options and the price of the food was lower for kids who struggle financially. I have grown so much from transferring to walled lake northern and I know that whatever challenges I have to face, I will always have the support of my school and friends to help guide and support me all the way.
