Northgate High School Ratings & Reviews

I don't know why the school has pride in being great. Facilities: - The infrastructure is sub par at best- A lot of classrooms have no doors. Not only is this a basic building design that we take for granted, but in today's world, can be considered a security risk. - You think doors are luxury, but walls are not in every class either. - There is no place for the kids to eat lunch. They sit on floors and on steps during lunch- They took some of cafeteria space and turned it into a wrestling room. - Library is basically non existent for a school of this size- They sell parking passes for those that drive, but don't limit them to the number of spaces. Kids have to park on the street.Faculty- Teachers are not evaluated on teaching ability and thus a lot of the teachers don't care about teaching and drive a lot of their students to supplement their courses with private tutoring and watching Khan Academy videos- Teachers frequently waste valuable class time to show movies that are not on the topic at hand- Teachers use class time to express their political views, be it on School District issues or national politics, and basically bully the kids that might not be in agreement with them- Principal is an ex-monk that at a City Hall meeting called all parents that were trying to improve the school system RACISTS. Basically couldn't make a rational argument against the merits of the proposal and resorted to name calling. School Spirit- Very little school spirit, rallies and spirit days were drastically reducedOn the positive side, they did invest a pool with a few million dollars

Northgate High School continues to be the gem of Walnut Creek area residents. The amazing extra curricula activities makes this school a 10 out of 10 school.

I used to be a parent at this school over 12 years ago. My experience was the teachers want to focus on the "B" and "C" students. They would compliment parents of "A" students, but not do anything in the classroom to keep them motivated. I observed few attempts when they tried to transfer the "D" students to another school in the district, and replace those spots with their better students. Of course all of these transfers were happening during the reign of the previous principal and vice-principal, before the district put a stop to it. I did not like how they assigned teachers to teach advanced classes. Few of them were simultaneously enrolled at the community college to learn the same subject they were supposed to teach in class everyday. I thought that was unfair. That's why my initial comment they didn't care much for their "A" students.

MDUSD's superintendent makes $292k every year, assistant superintendent makes $200k...look it up on Transparent California. California schools aren't lacking funds...they are just wasted on ridiculous salaries instead of going to the students (teacher salaries now average $85k-95k as well). Half of these funds come from property taxes that PARENTS pay. We can demand better for our kids!

My son just graduated and all what I can say are excellent school the best high school in MDUSD no question. Principal Vice Principals and Teachers are the best.
