    "Portage Northern was a good fit for me. I was a student athlete and an average student. I was able to find what I was interested in based off of the clubs and activities Northern had. Making friends is a big part of having a healthy experience in high school. I was able to make friends in classes, sports and club activities I was apart of. I would say that Portage Northern had outstanding teachers. I could always go to them for help no matter if it was a school problem or a personal problem. I only touched on a few things that made Portage great for me. Overall I am pleased with the experience I gained and the education I received."

    "The transition from middle school to high school was without a doubt the most nerve-racking experience of my life. I knew tons of people from my middle school, but I had no real friends, and the fact that I'd be in a new environment didn't make things any easier. I come from a traditional Indian family and had been bullied in middle school based on how I looked, talked, what I ate, etc. The summer of becoming a freshman at Portage Northern High School, I prayed that things would change. I'm glad to say my prayers were answered. People from around the state of Michigan and around the world attend PNHS, so it creates a very diverse and enjoyable environment. The teachers are just as great. It may be hard to believe, but I've never had a bad experience with any of my teachers or any other staff member. My teachers have helped me with every aspect of my academic and non-academic growth, and more so molded me to become a successful college student."

    "Portage Northern as a whole was amazing. The teachers there really care about the quality of education a student gets and they do whatever possible to make sure that you succeed in life and academics."

    "Overall I think that it's a really good school. All the teachers are pretty good and are dedicated to actually helping you learn and not just blowing students off. One of the most annoying things though is the parking pass that you have to pay for just to park in the student parking lot."

    "Teachers do a good job helping students. Much needed help with student bullying. Clean and updated."
