    I am a grandparent who has had children and grandchildren to graduate from this school. They have gone on to do well in college and in their chosen vocations. I am a supporter of this school both in academics and sports. The administrative team and faculty has not done enough in recent years to encourage the attendance/graduation rate. With more effort toward those goals Northview can become a great school.
