Council Rock High School - North Reviews

North is an excellent school in terms of college readiness and academics, however, there was a ridiculous lack in racial and economic diversity and the administration would push any issues under the rug. Whenever severe bullying or drug problems went on, the school would let perpetrators get away with things and did nothing to help victims. Instead of reaching out to students after a sophomore committed suicide, they made one brief announcement and then acted like nothing happened. They also did little, if anything, to help and protect queer and trans students from harassment.
Review Council Rock High School - North
As a college freshman, I look back at my time at North and am thankful. Some classes are a lot of work, some teachers are a pain, but it's worth it. Specifically, my writing is better than many other college students I know, and I owe that to North. The atmosphere is like any other high school, but overall CR North is an open and welcoming environment. However, the administration (above the teachers) don't seem to care as much, and like to cover up issues.
I mean, it is high school. So the social scene is like three sectors. One loves to party, one doesn’t ever go out, and then there is the “middle ground” kids who don’t go crazy but don’t just sit at home. The group that loves to party isn’t very involved in student-esc activities, and they tend not to really accept outsiders. Whereas the other two groups are very accepting and tend to be very involved in student groups. There are little to none challenges for being different at this school, everyone is very accepting of different races, sexual orientation, etc.
