Our fourth child is currently attending Northern High, a sophomore, graduating in 2017. Our first child graduated in 2008, our second in 2010, our third in 2014. I cannot say enough good things about the math program!! They have a fabulous AP Calc teacher, our child's junior year class, AP Calc AB all received 4's and 5's on the AP exam. Our second child goofed off in 8 and 9 grades and so the school made him take 2 periods of math to remediate, lost 1 elective, which was the best thing that could have happened!! He did great in Honors Trig by his Senior year. All those years my kids loved their math teachers. AP offerings are Lit, Lang, Calc AB, Calc BC Physics, Bio, World Lit, US Hist, Gov, Music and more. Orchestra is awesome! English hit and miss, but generally good, wish they emphasized more classics to help prepare for college. History is fabulous, Science good but not as strong as Math and History. Facility is older, getting a new one. Great offerings for journalism, broadcasting, chamber choir. Many good families at this school, our student feels safe. LOTS of homework, not busywork projects. Prepared our children well for college!!
