Clarkstown North Senior High School Reviews
Clarkstown North High School is undoubtedly, the most absolute average school to ever exist. Just its complete lack of anything interesting should make it exceptional, and yet, it fails at even that. North has its quirks that balance with its flaws, making a nice even playing field. There are cockroaches scattered through the halls, and festive decorations and posters on the walls. There's a cafeteria so old the tables could fall apart with one misplaced lunch tray and a PTA run school store that sells the best raps. I could go on and on about how great and how terrible North is, but in the interest of wasted time I'll leave it at this. North taught me not to have high expectations, but that expectations are important. North is not good and it is not bad. It is average, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Clarkstown North has a wide array of clubs and activities. However, some of these clubs seldom meet and have any information regarding them and the sports teams are difficult to make because an enormous group of kids try out. 140 KIDS tried out for track and of course I got cut. The teachers are helpful but the English teachers especially are challenging, even at a regular level. Hours of homework and the student body is extraordinarily cliquey. Hard to make friends when fitting in is an issue. Diversity include 70% white people, Jews, Asian-Americans, and a minor percentage of African-American and Latino students. It's difficult to ask for changes because the superintendent and the board don't listen to students. Cockroaches and pollutants rampant.
I love the teachers at my school. They're so invested and attentive towards their students. The facilities are sub-par, but the amazing work put forth by the teachers makes up for it. The sports get a lot of focus and sometimes overshadow the other clubs and teams (Debate etc..), resulting in the latter not getting the attention they deserve. School spirit is primarily shown at sports games. Every morning before a football game, the cheerleaders and marching band march through the halls before class. Our amazing school counselors help prepare you for college early and mostly everyone has some idea of what they want by Sophomore year, but if you don't put any effort in you won't see the same results. Wide variety of clubs, so there is something for everyone. We have a very mixed student body and GSA is a very prominent club. Security is very important and they take threats of violence and any bullying seriously. I'm enjoying my time at North and will look back on it fondly
