In the spring of each school year elections are held for the class officer positions for the following year. Positions available include: president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.

Math Club
Cost: none
 Meetings held monthly after school.
 Northview’s Math Club is centered on involving students in mathematics outside of their usual math classes. We do this through two main avenues, the annual JETS competition and monthly Math Club Problems. JETS  is basically an engineering competition held in the spring at The University of Toledo. Teams of 5 to 8 students compete against other area teams with the opportunity to reach state and national competitions. On a broader level, the Math Club Problems are non-standard problems (they might make you think a little more than usual!) published each month as a competition. They are available for all Northview students and anyone correctly solving any of the problems is then entered into a drawing for prizes at the end of the year. Math Club members are given first priority when it comes to forming the JETS teams and they also help determine suitability of solutions for the monthly problems.

Mock Trial

Cost: $25
About: Watch your students grow both academically and personally, right before your eyes! Students learn first-hand about the law, court procedures and the judicial system while also building critical 21st Century skills. 
Ohio Mock Trial of­fers an in­no­v­a­tive ap­proach to learn­ing the law and how our legal sys­tem func­tions. Guided by teach­ers and vol­un­teer legal ad­vi­sors, stu­dents par­tic­i­pate in an orig­i­nal, un­scripted sim­u­lated trial writ­ten by at­tor­neys.  High school stu­dents argue both sides of the case in real court­rooms across the state.  The state fi­nals are held in the Ohio State­house and the win­ner ad­vances to the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.
 Each year vol­un­teer at­tor­neys cre­ate an orig­i­nal case around a cur­rent con­sti­tu­tional issue im­por­tant to stu­dents.  Mock Trial teams work with an at­tor­ney or a judge to pre­pare their case – from both the plain­tiff and de­fense per­spec­tive. Com­pe­ti­tions at the dis­trict, re­gional and state lev­els are con­ducted in an ac­tual court­room and are scored by pan­els of lawyers and judges.

Quiz Bowl
 Cost: see advisor
 A Pay to Participate fee is associated with this activity
 Meetings held in G4, typically one hour practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We have seven three-way matches on Mondays from October until February.
 From students who just can’t miss an episode of Jeopardy, to students who just seem to know everything about music or sports, Quiz Bowl is for you.  The club competes with other local high schools, much like on Jeopardy. But instead of one on one action, this “sport” pits two teams of four against each other. The teams use their buzzers to ring in with the answer to a trivia question, before the other team can. Questions can be about almost anything. Common question subjects include fine art, literature, math, politics, history, geography, and pop culture. Everyone is guaranteed to know at least some answers. The club hosts tournaments and also travels to other high school tournaments. In the past, the club has also gone to larger tournaments at The Ohio State University, and The University of Michigan. But don’t be intimidated by the big names and math questions, Quiz Bowl can be fun for anyone.

 Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and can be programmed using a variety of languages, including Java.

Participants have access to tens of millions of dollars in college scholarships. Each season concludes with an exciting FIRST Championship.
