    "Great experience. Academics are phenomenal, but athletically lacking. The leadership at the school is great, my teachers are unbelievable, and my friends are outstanding. However, the disappointing aspect of the school is the athletics, which are not at all a focus."

    "Northside College Prep is extremely diverse and prepares you for a good college experience. There are some people in the administration who can put the image of the school over the overall well being of it's students, but in general the school is still a great place to go. There are many opportunities that you will be able to get here that you can't really get at other schools. The education is great and when you graduate, you will feel prepared for college!"

    "Northside College Prep was my first choice when I was in middle school. It originally seemed like some distant place that I could only dream of ever going to. After reaching that dream, and graduating soon, I became very disappointed. The atmosphere is nice, a lot of the people are really good, the area is nice, and the overall feel is pleasant. However, there's no feeling of legitimacy, there;s a lot of passive-aggressiveness. In the end, it was a good high school."

    "I love the encouraging and nurturing environment. Most of the students and teachers here are genuine and hardworking. However, the math/STEM programs here need a bit of work. The IMP method used to teach all classes up until trig hinder the ability of kids to practice. Instead of fostering development through repetition, the curriculum touches on topics once or twice in unnecessarily and absurdly long passages/"unit problems." Honestly, the traditional methods used in the American school system are better than this "IMP" program."

    "Northside has really supportive teacher and staff that help the students with both academics and social sides of the high school experience. Students really care about their education and help each other to do well. It is easier to learn because everyone else does so every student pushes each other. The building itself is convenient for students to arrive to class on time because it is big enough to not feel crowded but not big enough so that students arrive to class late. School is very clean and organized for students to not get distracted. Parents and teachers work together to have students do better. There are many clubs and sports so students can meet new people and have fun doing what they like before and/or after school. Since it is a public school the food is not always the best but enough is provided for students to eat enough and be alright until they go back home. Students can also call and order in food when they want to eat better and it also help local restaurants."
