Council Rock High School - North Reviews

There are some teachers that are really great, especially the Latin teacher. There are also a few teachers, especially in the English department that are really good at preparing students for the SAT grammar section. The arts department, specifically choir, seems to have interesting priorities at times(being more focused on having fancy lighting for a concert than on having students learn the music). The football team is quite bad and there generally isn’t much school spirit surrounding sports. There also can be a lot of pressure and competition surrounding grades and which classes your in. Not uncommon but it can be pretty extreme at crn. There are very few classrooms with windows.

Academics are pretty good. Most teachers were friendly, but some just don't do their job well. There are a lot of clubs which is nice. They put way too much money into sports and no where near enough into arts and music. Diversity is practically non-existent. Food, facilities, and college readiness are all pretty good. Slight bullying problem in my first few years there, but I'm not sure what's changed since then. If something bad happens on the news or at the school the administration acts like they care and then does nothing to actually solve the problem. So overall, an average high-school experience.
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!
