This school is grossly overcrowded and safety is a concern. This school needs a strong administration who will ensure safety and enforce zoning rules.

Northridge High School is a great school! My son is a 2011 graduate and my daughter was a 2009 graduate. The kids have attended several schools in many states / areas during their educational endeavors. They actually transferred from a private high school and found Northridge to be preferred. The administration is WONDERFUL! Sure, every school system has their "problems" but Northridge handles the situations effectively. The teachers make learning FUN & most become lifelong friends with their students. This alone says something! The 2011 graduating class was awarded over $10 million dollars in scholarships AND Northridge has a total 5 NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARS.....compare THAT to many other schools!!!!! Thank you, Northridge administration, faculty & staff for providing these kids an EXCELLENT beginning to their future and the rest of their lives! Dr. Espy takes great pride in his school and that pride & dedication shows! The counselors, Ms. Hudgins, Ms. Drane, Ms. Tiley, & Ms. Colvin are the BEST! They are SUPERIOR in their jobs!! The athletic staff are INCREDIABLE - Ms. Reed, Ms. Shuttlesworth, Mr. McBride, Ms Shaw, Coach Bowling, Coach Brantley..etc. GREAT! GOJAGS

This was supposed to be the great new school -- to divide from central and create the rich kid perfect school away from "undesirables." Major F.A.I.L. If you have relocated to Tuscaloosa, consider living in Hoover, Vestavia HIlls or other Bham areas where education matters. A 5 of out 10 in a great college town -- the rich, white area! A disgrace!

It's hard to come up with anything that stands out too much about Northridge, other than the fact that there are a few teachers there who really know their stuff, and are very gifted at what they do, and after some restructuring the administration became more helpful. However, where Northridge does have a few shining points in its academia, it lacks in its breadth. Essentially, there is one route you can take in your classes to ensure that you're really getting a good deal in your education. Soon, however, it will lose a few really good teachers to retirement in its foreign language and science departments, and unless Alabama's public education system and the Tuscaloosa City Board of Education can step teacher recruitment up a notch, Northridge could hit a large slump.
