The environment mixed with the brilliant teachers and helpful staff create a school experience that is worth remembering. There are a wide variety of high level courses that allow for students to choose the level of academics they wish to study. The music program at NSHS is excellent and, I would say, one of the best a high school can offer. Athletics are one of north shores strong points, and we take pride in the athletics that are offered. There is so much school pride that you can feel throughout the school and this creates a bond with the teachers and students that you cannot find at any other high school.

Over the years that I have been enrolled in North Shore Schools, they have usually kept my best interest at heart. If some type of class setting did not work out for me then they would change it for the next year. One of the best people on staff is Ms. Christie. She would always have great suggestions on how to improve whatever happened to be troubling me. Of course, the food could be a little better.
All three of our kids went through the North Shore school system from K to 12. They originally started at Glenwood landing and then moved over to Glen Head elementary when we moved to a new house then to middle school and high school. The only school we didn’t experience was Sea Cliff. They had a great experience academically, musically, and in athletics. They went on to Bucknell, Middlebury, and Lafayette colleges. The two oldest are in med school and the youngest is an engineer for Ford. We couldn’t have asked for a better education. Is was a perfect balance without the high pressure cut throat atmosphere that we heard about in some of the nearby districts.
