Property values continue to decline and the scores are not the level of schools south of them. It begs the question as to whether the school should be merged with another district.

Out of the class of 2013, I witnessed the poor quality of this school. Teachers letting students leave class and roam the halls to meet up with their friends. The teachers lack any discipline to correct or discipline any students. They would rather pass on students up grades so they never had to deal with them again. Almost all teachers have a disregard of dress code. During the 2013 rehearsal for graduation we were given two simple rules to abide by; khakis/dress pants and dress shoes. Dress shoes were provided in case anyone would forget to bring their own. It took only 5 students to walk in with shorts and flip flops and sneakers to completely let the teachers to let them go. If they can't even enforce that one rule, what other rules could the students not be following? The absolute sickest thing about Northridge is the offering of the SIS program. I understand that some students make be deficient in credits; like I had to take gym due to going to CTC, but when students are failing, they throw them into SIS and jut pass them on easily with a C average. What is even worse is that a tenth of the 2013 class was wearing the SIS cords and were actually proud. It is so sickening.

I grew up going to Northridge schools from 2nd grade through 9th grade. I had a lot of friends, participated in sports, took honors courses, and enjoyed the school very much. We moved to Vandalia-Butler Schools my 10th grade year and I had the worst experience ever! I went from a laid back, friendly environment, that gave students plenty of opportunity to broaden their horizons both academically and athletically to a school full of cliques and stuck-up people.I am a female that wrestled for Northridge, and now wrestle for college, because Northridge gave me that opportunity. Peer harassment kept me from wrestling for Butler. I wish I never had left Northridge because people that attend and/or live in Northridge are more down-to-earth people that aren't worried about how much monetary value a person is worth, unlike Vandalia...

My daughter joined Northridge High School last year when the disrict impleminted the open enrollment for the School system. Northridge High School has been a God Send for my daughter. My teen ager is in the special need program at Norhridge and I know she would not be doing as well as she is if she were attending High school anywhere else.The remedial program at Northridge is great and the teachers are amazing. I would like to thank Northridge's principal for his wonderful heart and the dedicated teacher for all they do for our children.

My daughter graduated last year. She had taken honors classes. She took pre calculus. The 5 students in the class had to take their class with a different math class. They sat in the back of the room while the teacher taught the other class. He would give them assingments to do on their own. twice a week he would take time to teach them. They shouldn't offer a class if it can't be taught daily. Beyond that I fojlnd the principal to be very cordial and helpful when we had issues. As with most schools there was too much emphasis on sports and not on academics. Over all Northridge wasn't that bad. You only get out of it what you put into it.

My son graduated from NHS in '06' and furthered his education onto a 4 yr college and is doing well with a 3.8 GPA! Please do not blame the district in a failing system it's what your child wants out of his/her education. I will agree the Asst. Principal at the High School seems to be there only for the paycheck but my child was there only for the education and he took it and ran with all they had offered him as every child should do reguardless of who the staff are!

My child attended NHS after they offered open enrollment to their school this year. I just want to say that I have never been happier! I wish they would have done this four years ago. Teachers are great, principal is great, counselor is the best I have ever seen. My child actually learned something this year!! Amazing! Compared to the inner city schools in our area, this school has been heaven sent. Keep up the good work Northridge, you're doing a great job!!!!

We are very disappointed with the acedemic and leadership of this school. The Vice Princeipal in general is very rude and doesn't seem to have much concern about the children's education. The state gives out reports of how schools are performing and this school does not rank very high. We would like to caution parents and have them check out the school performance, before you let your child attend after doing so I am sure you will deside to take them to a alternative school. We as parents need to stick together because we need to make sure our children get properly educated and this school will not help your child get the proper education since they are lacking in academic's and leadership.

the quality of academic programs is very poor. there is no follow-up of academic programs and the students grades reflect the poor standard of education in this school. making the honor roll here is equal to getting D's in another school. the high school always ranks as one of the lowest in the state on the state report cards. their academic programs are lower than the city of dayton public schools which was ranked the worst school district in the state of ohio 3 years ago. now the dayton city schools rank higher than the northridge schools. this year (2006) the northridge school district will rank lower than dayton public schools.

The children at this school have major behavior issues.The school does nothing to stop children from leaving school and the assistant principle is quite rude when you have an issue to talk to him about.
