N Burl Co Reg High School Ratings & Reviews
As a teacher who works here I'd like to give it 5 stars, but there's always room for improvement. Diversity, acceptance, & inclusion are priorities in this school. Bullying & bias issues, when reported, are handled swiftly. Clubs range from environmental clubs, to ROTC. Faith Based Athletic groups to a GSA Group. Sports, Clubs, Video, Drama, Music, Tech... it's all here IF YOU CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE. Staff are fairly happy, administration is fairly responsive, & guidance is fairly proactive. You can see by the numbers, this is not a bland district, but wonderfully diverse. School is what you make of it. How parents support their children, support their education, communicate with teachers, believe the feedback of certified instructors, & follow through with recommendations, has a lot to do with the success of that child. Teachers can only do so much for the few hours they have your children. Opportunities abound here, but parents & students need to reach out & pick the fruit.
Many advanced course offerings for the motivated student. Like most things in life, you get what you give. If your student is high-achieving and motivated, there are many course offerings that will challenge him/her. Lots of clubs and sports. The facilities are awful and the only reason this school will never earn a 5 star rating. If the facilities are improved, the sky's the limit for Northern.
I have two students in Northern and both excell academically and are encouraged by there teachers to take more challenging courses every year. They have many friends wether through sports or clubs. As with any school there are problems many of which I believe stem from the home and lifestyle. If you are an engaged parent in your child's education and have a child who likes to be challenged there are many opportunities for them. From 20+ AP courses to CAP classes associated with Rowan college of Burlington County. To a new ROTC program. This school has a lot to offer a student who is motivated to succeed.
If you are not a pot head or a member of the FFA you will not fit in at this school.Teachers have no control over students and there is constant fighting and the administration is a joke!
I had a son graduate here in 2013 and another graduating this year. The changes within the school this year have been drastic with a new administration...many more fights, constant phone usage in the classrooms and disrespect for staff. Some excellent staff here, but the phone distractions are making it difficult for even competent teachers to do their job. We will be moving our 2 high school students next year out of district. On a plus side, the Middle School is quite rigorous and does not allow free phone use--was highly impressed with the way the administration was constantly on site/accessible here and sought to know all students and staff!
