    "Northgate's prison-like outwards appearance does not do it justice for the great resources available, in forms such as advanced technology and staff. Most teachers are nice and love their students and what they teach. Students are also nice for the most part, but there are a plethora of them and sometimes, navigating the school is a real struggle. Northgate has wonderful sports and music programs, though the school should help the music program out a bit more instead of making the parents do all the hard work, and the school should also fix the tennis courts, which have been cracked for 15 years, instead of redoing an already pristine football turf."

    "Attending Northgate was a roller coaster ride, but a fun one! The beginning was a little rough and a bit of an adjustment but as the years flew by, I grew to love it. The staff is friendly and helpful and like many people, I had my favorite teachers. There are plenty of extracurricular activities to choose from and many resources that can be utilized if need be."

    "What I like about Northgate is that it is a place where individuals can be their true selves and actually enjoy going to school everyday. I have been to many schools in my life, some also great but Northgate manages to create the best environment for students where they can truly feel like they belong and are able to discover what their passions and interests are. Staff and teachers are also what make Northgate so memorable as they make it a goal everyday to make sure that students succeed and lean something worthwhile. The only negative remark that I have about Northgate is that there are times when certain classes have to be canceled due to lack of interest even though they are very fascinating and influential. Although I guess that teachers can not do a great deal when it comes to this situation as then there would not be enough teachers to teach other important classes that continue to make an impact on the lives of students."

    "I liked how I was able to take the classes that I was interested in. Unfortunately, there were so many classes that I never was able to fit into my schedules but they're there if you want to take them. They really emphasize creativity and doing what you like however you like. I think this aspect really prepped me for college."

    "My experience at Northgate was positive. I loved the teachers that I had and have fond memories of my time there. I was very involved in the science department and I loved the teachers. They were all very supportive and excellent at their job. The extracurriculars were abundant and it was fairly easy to start your own club. The location of the school was great and safe. I think that the school did a great job for college readiness, especially since they offered a great amount of AP classes."
