North Heights Junior High is a great school to send your child to. The teachers are not resentful and they want the best for your child. There is no more bullying on this campus than any other Jr. High campus. I feel that the review made on April 8, 2010 was by someone angry that things did not go their way and their goal was to tarnish the schools reputation. Please visit the campus before you judge them. They are in transition and there is always room for improvement, but they are also up for the challenge.
