I liked the sense of community in North Platte Public Schools, as well as the excellence of the arts programs there. This includes the Music Program (our Marching Band, Orchestra, and Choir are all excellent), the Journalism Program, the Art Program, Speech and Debate, Theater, and the yearly Musical. Some things I would like to see change include: the pre-conceived notions of student's capabilities based upon their last names, the intense focus and unfair division of funds to the sports programs (and not even all sports), nicer laptops for students to use, improved funding in non-sport related extracurricular activities, improved counseling resources for students, improved mental health awareness and resources for students, a specific program implemented to help troubled youth, more college readiness programs/courses offered, change in the block schedule so kids can take more classes.

I have heard of other people's experiences with different high schools and it makes me glad to have NPHS. We have so many extracuricular activities that other schools around us don't have. Not only extracuricular activities are great but our culture too. All of our teachers make sure they give us our undivided attention. They also reinforce rules. The new phone policy is good for us as students. Everyone paying attention in class. This helps me get further as a student because the teachers can worry less about students with phones. The best thing by for though would have to be bulldog time. It gives us a chance to get homework done and interact with kids you wouldn't normally. When I graduate I will be glad that I graduated at North Platte High School.
I feel like its a great school great environment but maybe we could focus more about real life knowledge instead of things we probably won't really use for the future. We have devices now that help us complete day to day tasks, but I guess it is useful not relieing on something also I think we could make a better program to fit every kids needs. To fit every kids needs we would need a lot of people getting involved because each kid is unique and special in society though I feel us kids are not really treated as individuals with our own personalities. Instead of being individuals we are grouped up and taught the same things, treated the same way, and just in general respected the same way because of our generation and our society. I just believe we can mame a difference. Thank you for your time I could go on but I would be rambling.
