Northview is a welcoming school with strong academic programs for kids that want to excel. Lower standardized test scores reflect this school's challenges with its diverse student population (widely diverse race/ethnicity, income, and English learners), but in no way reflect that the school is sub-par. Though there are always things that could be improved, discriminating parents considering Northview shouldn't be concerned that there children won't have access to a high quality education and opportunities. The International Baccalaureate program, honors curriculum, excellent visual and performing arts (orchestra, band, choir), after school programs (such as Achieve "brain game" club), athletics, etc. keep student engaged and academically successful. Faculty and wonderful teachers help make sure the needs of all students are met. Beyond the school, the community is extremely supportive of its public schools. Northview feeds into North Central High School which is top ranked in the state for college and career readiness.

I like the diversity of programs. Even though I strongly believe that the class sizes are too large, I believe that the people working at the school do a good job. I feel that this is a good second choice type of option....for my son's schooling...and when I learned that Indiana spends 50% of its budget on the schools...well,...maybe this is a good place to be.
