    "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."

    "Northgate HS is at a very nice community. Students and parents work very hard to make the school great. Unfortunately, we belong to Mount Diablo School District which is one of the worst school district. Over the years, we have seen a lot of good teachers leaving the district. I believed Northgate would be a better school if we can get out of Mount Diablo School District. We will have more funding to hire better teachers and have more AP classes to offer."

    "The school is very competitive. Many graduates go on to Ivy League schools and other prestigious colleges such as UC Berkeley. The students who are successful are the ones who take advanced classes and learn how to teach themselves the material. There are some excellent teachers, but most are average or below. If you do manage to do well there, you will be very prepared for college."

    "I transferred to Northgate junior year, and I'm so glad I did. Teachers are dedicated to helping students, most people are very kind and I've made great friends!"
