    "Great school! Just very challenging, but teachers really help students get in college. You have many resources and the extended hours in school allow kids to take out of trouble. They offer tutoring for all classes. Very strict! This school really teaches students how to manage their time effectively."

    "Northstar is very involved with its students especially the teachers. Teachers go to every extent to teach and see the students be successful in everything that they do. The staff provide students with counseling whenever they are going through personal issues. Northstar is every intellectually engaged with the students and also socially. They prepare the students for college by taking us to different colleges that they feel is the best for us. What needs to change about Northstar is that there needs to be more variety of sports and clubs."

    "I definitely enjoy the rigorous courses given and the plentiful of opportunities provided for students. I know that many students have been granted the opportunity to travel abroad, travel to different states to attend a STEM or art/humanities program. North Star does a great job in expanding the students' horizon in life. However, I believe the school's true understanding of Newark is flawed where only the negative connotations of Newark is expressed. I believe that when the teachers who teach the black students listen to the students' experiences of being a person that actually lives in Newark and actually tries to learn from them as well, there can be a mutual understanding between the two parties. When you ask students to take a survey about how the teachers did in teaching that does not help the relationship between the student and the teacher. I believe that connection is key to learn from one another."

    "North Star is great, academically focused but there's a lot of improvement for everything else besides academics required for a high school to prosper, including athletics, school culture, and clubs, etc."
