    Extracurriculars: I wasn't involved in any sports, so I cannot comment much on that. There are a variety of clubs that students can join. Most clubs are pretty cheap. Some clubs are inconsistent with meetings.

    Overall Experience: One of my favorite things about Northview is the diversity. The best thing that comes out of this is International Night. There is great food from all over the world and an amazing show put on by the students celebrating their cultures. It is something I regret not going to freshman year.

    Overall, I feel that I have received a great education and am prepared for a successful college career. Sometimes the workload would be crazy (even in the summer), and I would be incredibly stressed, but I had a good experience nonetheless.

    Teachers: My experience with teachers at Northview was mostly positive. Most teachers are engaging and try different methods to accommodate all learners, such as powerpoints one day and hands-on activities the next. The teachers are, for the most part, very knowledgeable about what they teach. Teachers will try to make sure that everyone understands the different concepts, and many hold help sessions either before or after school. The academics are more difficult at Northview in comparison with Johns Creek or Chattahoochee, and because of it, Northview's teachers definitely prepare you for an easier transition into college.

    Extracurriculars: There are various extracurricular opportunities here, from orchestra to lacrosse, to speech and debate to baking clubs. I think it is safe to say that pretty much every student here is a part of at least one club or organization/activity, and they are all passionate about something. The administration is very supportive, surrounding each activity as well.

    Overall Experience: The only drawback is that the days can get very routine and seem mundane. However, we do have events like pep rallies, Titanfest, treat days, karaoke, from time to time during school. I've loved coming to this school and wouldn't trade it for any other. The staff and students here are all some of the sweetest and most supporting. Bullying here is unheard of, and all of the students are honestly so kind to each other. I've heard so much about other schools where students treat each other horribly under the radar; here, it is never like that. Despite the competition between students, we all still respect each other and cheer one another on, through both failure and success.
