from observing the students at school events and how they respect all fellow students regardless of race, creed, color, etc.

This school provides an excellent education as well as diversity (compared to the other 2 Forest Hills High Schools); this is a very good thing. The school staff is very focused on providing the best prep possible for the students to succeed in college.

I have two students in the Spanish Immersion Program at the HS. They love school and the SI Program. They both are involved in choir and one does musicals and the other enjoys cheer. They will be going to NYC with the drama club this summer. It is a fairly middle class to upper class area with a strong focus on academics and college prep. There is a little more diversity than other schools in the district, I think. Good peer groups, no violence. Some typical teen issues.

From the amazing staff and administrators to the caring teachers who take the time to get to know their students and actually use differentiation to allow the students to learn individually, Northern is a great place to be raising bright and capable kids.

the academics are fine, but there is a lot of open prejudice and unfunny racist jokes made to the face of Asian and Indian kids. the kids would never do this to African American students, but they think it is particularly funny toward Asians. The teachers do nothing and it goes on in front of them. My kid is really suffering, and we are leaving the school.
