I am a grandparent who has had children and grandchildren to graduate from this school. They have gone on to do well in college and in their chosen vocations. I am a supporter of this school both in academics and sports. The administrative team and faculty has not done enough in recent years to encourage the attendance/graduation rate. With more effort toward those goals, Northview can become a great school.

The teachers and programs not only educate the students, they give them life skills.
