Northern High School Reviews

By , a Former Student on

I attended Northern High from 2004-2008. Though I loved and enjoyed my classes, certain things were not set up in the best way for me as a wheelchair bound student. I believe the layout of the school needs to be revisited, as the ramps were steep and long and took extensive weight training for me to maneuver on my own after my motorized chair broke down in 2006. Teachers sometimes made me feel pushed aside and certain things were forced upon me in my freshman year that did more harm than good, but most of the staff was helpful. Parking was always an issue for us. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Northern.
