I'm a current high-school senior and I have had an AMAZING experience with my school. For a person dealing with many hardships and finance struggles, North High was very supportive and helped me in all the ways they could. I went from a depressed high-school sophomore failing half my classes who had no hope for my future to a successful high-school senior enrolled in National Honor Society & getting consistent A's/B's in all my classes.

The diversity is very interesting here. You can find students of all colors, races, ethnicity or cultures. No matter who you identify as, you'll find yourself a home here.

I feel safe here as well. There's a respectful and kind police officer that guards our school to keep us safe. She's done a very good job & is efficient with keeping everyone safe.

Overall, attending this school has been a very enjoyable experience to me and I'd recommend this school to anyone in the area.

At Tartan Senior High school it is a lot more than just a school. Tartan is culturally diverse community. Just entering the school and being around so many different people teaches many things, like how to treat different kinds of people, for example, minorities or students with autism, ADHD or any disability. I truly enjoy coming to school and learning from the teachers here. There is not one teacher who gets tired of explaining the same question over and over, as long as the student ends up understanding the question. Every adult here really makes it clear that school is not about the grade or the right answer but it is about understanding how you got the right answer to get that good grade.
I like the environment, I attended for four years, and took many advanced, AP, and CIS courses. I like the variety of courses offered for upperclassmen, because you can choose what you want to do. It makes it possible to move toward a trade, or move toward furthering your education. I do not like the way the administration runs the school, they can make the school feel like a trap at times, and I have had bad experiences with them limiting expression in the choir and drama departments. Also, the dress code is an issue, but this is an issue at most schools. Girls are objectified when simply wearing a tank top, and boys are essentially allowed to walk around with their entire chests exposed.
