North Little Rock school district is amazing! I’m so happy that my parents sent me to North Little Rock and I would definitely send my kids to NLR. I am a senior at the high school and involved in cheer, national honors society, beta club, Mu Alpha theta, and student council. North Little Rock has an activity for everyone and strives to never leave anyone out. My experience has been great through my years of school. By staying involved and being academically challenged I am able to give this district 5 stars!

Overall attending North Little Rock High School was a great experience. The school culture is beyond excellent. The sports are outstanding. The football team has went to the state championship twice. The classes aren't too complex. I like a challenge so the work there was a bit too easy for me. If I could change anything it would be making more classes for students to take. I want to become a doctor. North Little Rock doesn't have any classes that would prepare me or other student for their career of choice. They also need more hands on classes rather than the traditional learning. The food is like average school food(YUCK). As far as the taste of the food they keep it pretty sanitized and a safe environment. There is plenty activities to join including sports, jrotc, chess club , theater, student president, prom, homecoming and more. North Little Rock doesn't discriminate they give everyone the same opportunities at success.
My experience with NlRHS was great! I learned a lot from the staff and students. A wonderful environment, and a brand new school at that. The staff are very determined to make sure you succeed in everything you do. They make sure students are in class on time and make it possible for them to have time in between classes to handle their business.
