The teachers allow kids to sit in class and do nothing. Kids read their bibles out loud to eachother while in class and tell other students they are going to hell for not reading the bible. If your child is on a 504 plan expect for that to be completely ignored. When a meeting to talk about the 504 is scheduled, expect only 1 or 2 teachers to show up. The fees you are required to pay are outrageous. You pay a book fee for classes that require books then you are charged again by the district for your child to use the books. You pay a transportation fee to the school and district. You pay a special education fee to the school and the district even if your child is not in a special education class. The school will hold your transcripts for your student if you don't pay the over $100 registration fee and all the other fees you will incur the rest of the school year. They will send you to collections without letting you know. When you do pay the fees they still refuse to give your childs transcripts and say that you still owe hundreds of dollars in school fees and the District will not help you and they tell the school to handle it.

If you come from the wrong side of the interstate you can forget them caring about you or your students.

This school completely failed both of my kids. They both struggled, and both their dad and I tried to work with their teachers to get them back on track. We tried for 3 years to work them towards graduation. In the end both of them did not graduate and both had to go on to get their adult high school diplomas. I know my kids were in part to blame, but teachers and counselors should be there support the kids that are struggling instead of turning their backs on them.

I was shy and completely picked on all throughout my elementary school years, and finally started to blossom when junior high came. Northridge gave me that extra push, and now after my first year there I'm a complete social butterfly and have been performing better academically than I would have ever anticipated, with a year GPA of 3.7. The teachers here are incredible, I owe them so much. I'm a member of the PVA academy, and the administration doesn't do much to encourage students to attend the plays (aside from the major musical done every year) or the band/choir/orchestra concerts. But our school community is highly encouraging, and it's so easy for ANYONE to make friends there. The academies are amazing, and they surround you with people with similar interests as yours. I could not ask for a better high school experience! Can't wait for the next two years.

Honestly as a student... Northridge is a great school! My only complaint being that as a student in PVA (performing and visual arts) the administration never promotes the choir, art, or theater students anywhere near the other groups. Very unappreciAted.

I'm a student, currently in my sophomore year. My first year here has been awesome socially, and certain teachers are simply amazing. I'm in the arts academy, (PVA), one of the biggest ones, and I love it. The teachers within the academy are all great. My world civ and English classes are decided upon my academy, and Mr. Hansen (who teaches world civ) is one of the most effective teachers I've ever had. Ms. Partridge (formerly Ms. Snarr) is the most hardworking, dedicated, experienced choral director I'll ever imagine to have. My theater teacher has recently been 'let go', and I loved his class. I'll definitely miss it in the years to come. It's true that the counselors are not helpful. I've made three appointments with them this year for help and it's the same discussion--what credits do I need? Forget anything else.

My advice on Northridge and life in general- get involved! Northridge offers so many extra things you can do to learn and grow in your area of intrest. The classes are geared toward medical, business, arts, culinary ect... and you get to choose an academy to belong to which is geared toward your area of intrest as well. I was a student there. Just like anywhere you can choose to be bitter and have a bad experience or you can take control of your life and find joy in the journey. As far as the school being too pushy in religion- the people in the community have good values and morals- why wouldn't you want your kid to grow up around people like that?

Good School. The people are really nice and approach you when you look like you're having a hard time find a class or your locker.

Be ready to pull your hair out trying to get someone to return your phone calls or emails, and getting information about schoolwork and performance. And, yes, it seems it's all about CREDITS CREDITS CREDITS.

I my opinion that is the best school anyone could ever go to the counselors that they have been talking about about are extremely helpful and make sure to take care of the students. The principal is the best and he makes sure that the students are taken care of. I was a stdent in northridge for two years (sophmore and junior years) and i found it a great school

I am a junior at Northridge and I am sorry to say it is one of the worst schools I have been to. I have had an older sister who went there as well and she has already commented on the fact that it is going downhill. The councilors are no help what so ever, they only seem interested in getting you to credits (Doesn't matter if you learn anything while you are at it) and getting you out of the school. The counselors are no help what so ever. My friend went in to talk to a counselor about making up some credits and some other stuff and the counselor kicked her out ten minutes in because she had to leave for her carpool. My other friend had her phone stolen out of her locker, and the administrators did nothing about it. They had her fill out a form, and took no action. She had to go buy another phone. I mean sure it may be a good school for athletic academic students (They have a lot of options), but other than that the business, the art, and the other academies are brushed aside. They have so few options and intricate classes to excel the students in there.

I have had two children graduate from Northridge High School, and currently have a Sophomore attending. The older two children had a great time at Northridge. They were both in the Business Academy and loved the teachers there. One of them was a SBO and the Sophomore is on the volleyball team. Her volleyball coach is top-notch and the SBO Advisors were awesome! They helped her in many ways trying to get the best scholarships available. Also, the principal is great and truly understands teenagers. I have been heavily involved with NHS because they are great people to work with.

I am not a parent, but I did attend NHS and graduated in 1997. I think that my high school experience was great. I had a lot of friends from different 'social cliques', played sports and attended extra cirricular activites. My parents supported me in academics as well as my sports. I am not of LDS religion and I didn't feel like any students or teachers were shoving the religion down my throat. Since graduation, I've moved to Florida and have finished my college degree. Most of the people I've met after high school, didn't have a good experience in high school like I did. Knowing that, makes me proud to say I am an alumni of NHS!

My daughter attended NHS 9th thru 12th and I have to tell you it is an excellent school. The drama and music program have teachers who care and who bring the best out of their students. My daughter excelled beyond my and her belief. I never saw a student that loved school so much. My interaction with her teachers was always positive. My daughter has since moved on to the University of Utah and has made the deans list (straight A's) for her freshman and sophomore year. Mr. Ward, Ms. Ryan, Mr. Wright, Ms. Snarr take a bow for a job well done... Bravo to you Northridge for all you do...from a very proud parent.

My daughter has had a wonderful time at NHS and has received a superior education in comparison to other public schools. I have a word to say concerning the previous parent reviews I have read though. There are many states in this country where one religion is more prevelant than another. For example, North and South Dakota, New York, Florida to name a few. Utah is among these. If you don't want to live here, then you must ask yourself, WHY do you? If you are so unhappy about a school because it's students and/or teachers belong to the dominant religion, why torture yourself and stay? I'm sure nobody will beg you to stay. What is the problem, really? I have lived in Utah my whole life and I have never had anyone shove religion down my throat. On the contrary, people here are very neighborly. The folks at NHS are among these.
