I am a student at this school and I must say it stinks! two of the teachers I have hate me! I never have fun at school, the clubs stink. Our explorer classes are rotten. Don't get me started about the food. We get our food and its cold! the ladies don't wear hairnets. Sometimes we find hair in our soup! Bullying is a big problem. Teachers don't do anything about it! I wish I didn't have to go to this school. But I do and it is horrble!

Hello I am a student that is going into my first year of High School at Northern Lehigh. I would just like to say that I love going to this school. Even though we don't have that much money, we acomplish so much, and make sure there is enough supplies and student's help. I have become very succesful over these 9 years of my life in Northern Lehigh. The teachers are the best you could ever find. I have found that they were extremly helpful to me. And right now I am helping one of the teachers in Peter's Elementry because I loved that school so much and wanted to help it become better. See this is why I love going to this school.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
