Northwestern Lehigh High School hosted an open house Sept. 5 for students and parents.

Superintendent Jennifer Holman, Principal Aileen Yadush, Assistant Principal Donald Allen, as well as teachers and staff members welcomed visitors for an informational evening.

Parents toured the school and met teachers to hear what will be taught for the 2019-20 year.

For students, attending the evening had an added benefit other than showing their parents around.

In the cafeteria, several of the high school clubs were represented by classmates.
