Council Rock School North is phenomenal high school. The curriculum offers tons of AP and honors courses as well as accelerated and academic courses. Enough variety to challenge most students. The teachers are knowledgable, dedicated and available. We have incredible sports teams and clubs and a great sense of school spirit. The high school is located in a charming historic town within walking distance to everything. I feel luck to live in a community where the public is so highly regarded!

Council Rock North is a great school filled with teachers who seem to truly enjoy their jobs Though there are flaws, like any other school, it is a safe place where students can get the best possible education they can receive. Council Rock North is not only dedicated to the success and safety of its students, but it is also dedicated to the overall enjoyment of the student population. Like any high school, there are cliques, but in the end the students are able to come together and stand behind their school with pride and togetherness.
So here is my experience so far. First off, the cafeteria really needs to clean up their act, because I have had multiple friends find hairs in their food. Second, the principals/anyone who hands out punishments need to figure out what is a correct discipline for a wrongdoing. My friend did something bad and got a suspension, then did something a whole lot worse and only got 3 detentions. And third, the athletic director needs to put more funding towards the sports teams that are actually good. *Hmm* not football *Hmm*
