NHS is great. I don't know what this guy was talking about below, but this school is very social. Everyone is respectful towards everyone and sociable. The academics at NHS are tough, but if you work hard and prepare it is very doable. I am currently a freshman and have had a life changing experience. I can't wait for my next 3 years

Northview is terrible when it comes to socializing with people/students but when it comes academics and school related activities, I believe Northview is one of the best schools for your child if he or she is focused only on academics. If socializing is what you look for, don't even think about coming here, the students here are a bit...different compared to any school I been too, difficult people to keep up with. Also, I have seen many unusual students here. That makes me worry about my safety, but other than that, let's hope it stays safe as they promise the school to be. Also, when they say this school is very diverse, it is...but sometimes it's a bit TOO diverse. (This involves social problems) Let's wrap things up here: Social- 2/10 Academics- 10/10 Teachers- 8/10 Management- 8/10 Lunch/Food- 5/10 Clubs/Activities- 8/10 My Tips (I'm sure they're useless): 1.) When you arrive to Northview as a complete new student out of nowhere, don't expect anyone to help you when you need it. 2.) Try to adapt and live through it. If Academic is for you, then this school is for you. A bright future lies within this school, it's up to you to unlock it.

Very high academics, best publich high school test scores in Georgia. Wide variety of clubs and athletic programs, with several state champions. Nearby Johns Creek and Chatahoochee high schools are very good, but Northview beats them on SAT scores.

It's funny, Johns Creek HS got a "10" and seriously low parent ratings. This school got a "9" with incredible ratings. Great job!

This is one of the best schools in the state. It has a diverse, friendly student body that welcomes new students with ease. The classes are difficult and challenge students and make them strive for success. There are over 100 different clubs and activities at Northview ranging and our Lacrosse and Tennis teams are amazing! The counselors are helpful, and the teachers offer one on one after/before school help sessions. Over 30 AP (Advanced Placement) courses are offered in a variety of subjects ranging from Psychology to Environmental Science. I strongly reccomend this school to anyone who wants their children to have a great education in a healthy learning environment with tons of extracurricular activities.

As everybody has mentioned, Northview is a very difficult school acedemically. There are some very good teachers and some very bad teachers, like at any public school. I have had 2 kids graduate from Northview and I have one who will be a junior this year. The two that graduated from Northview are doing great in college and find college easier than Northview was. The only complant I would have with Northview is that there seems to be a lack of school pride/support for some of the athletic teams. (It maybe that kids are too busy working on projects or studying to attend athletic events!) Otherwise, I believe Norhtview does what a high school should and that is to prepare kids for college and life after school. It will be interesting to see how or if the new principal changes things (The previous principal was only there a few years after the original principal retired and she did not work to improve anything that we noticed).

People say this school is competitive and it is. People say that it is hard and it is. But, some people don't understand the amount of hard work Northview expects of its students. So, if you are not willing to lose a few nights of sleep or give it your all, you won't succeed. It's like in life, if you don't do a good job at work, you get fired. If you don't do a good job at Northview, you didn't work hard enough.

None of the schools can fit all different levels students. Northview is a very competitive and very intense school. If a student can not up to an academic challenge, then Northview may not be a good one for that student. In some cases, Northview students have better knowledge than teachers, in term of the academy fields; and in some cases, if teachers and students both took SAT test, students test scores could be higher than teachers . It is fact, lots of students got outside tutors to learn some higher level math, science and language arts which are the school is not able to teach. So, speaking about the school credit, Northview s succeeded, the major factor is parents put lots of money on tutors, and students work really hard, lots of cases, till midnight.

My 1st kid has been at Northview High for the past 1.5 yrs and am shocked to see negative comments (like "if your GPA is not low, you are OK") about the school. Where I come from, kids go to school to S-T-U-D-Y. I expect a supportive School that would help kids learn, get into a good College & make it to a Career of their interest & liking. I wish our School System would focus more on serious education & work towards taking our great country back to it's rightful place in the World (see U.S. Education Slips In Rankings-http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/09/13/national/main838207.shtml). My suggestion: If you don t like the School, put in an application & move your kids to another one instead of demanding that one of the few good schools (which is serious about helping it s students attain excellence through Education) lower it's standards to suit a few kid(s)or parents who are not serious about education. Am glad that the School has been rated by www.greatschools.org as one of the top Schools. Let our Students work hard, learn, get good grades, get good SAT/ACT scores, get into good colleges, and make a good career and life for themselves-let us support such Schools. Go NHS!

Northview High School is located in a relatively (upper-middle class) area of Atlanta, and definitely offered great education. The teachers there were very good, and prepared students well for AP examinations as well as for college. Not only that, the teachers were great mentors and were very knowledgeable about their fields. Coming out of high school, I actually considered becoming a teacher as a career, just because my teachers were wonderful and really inspired me to be like them. I remember Northview s core goal was excelling in academics, athletics, and the arts. The school really did this. Our athletics program was very good, and the arts were emphasized. The school principal at the time frequented all of the sporting events and came to the majority of the concerts. Overall, Northview was a fairly above normal school, and was a great place to spend my high school years.

My child has been at Northview for three years and I am disappointed. If you have an acceptionally bright student with a 3.9 or higher GPA you will be fine. There is NO diversity at that school nor support for the average student. If your student has ADHD you can forget it! It is not until the child has failed tremendously and the parent keeps begging for accomondation before it gets little attention. Unfortunately all they care about are the super smart or wealthy families. If you are average or slightly below you will fall through the cracks. I hate to play the race card, but all of the african americans have left and are much happier elsewhere. We moved to the area for our kids to have a better education but we leave disappointed. We have made some good friends along the way though.

This school is awful. It doesn't offer very many clubs, so it doesn't catch anyone's interest in school.Our music and arts is atrocious.

We were nervous about the size of the school at first, but I am so pleased at the way Northview's teachers get to know the students. The student body is great - a diverse group of excellent students and athletes. Compared to other schools, this is like sending your child to a private school.
