North Star School District Reviews

My experience at North Star was fairly good. I have attended the school ever since my early pre-school years. The school is good, because it is surrounded by am active and supportive community. Through this the school has become more efficient and effective over the years. What I like most about the school is the motivated teachers. My favorite classes were always in English, and because of the schools excellent English department I have been able to enjoy it continuously through my high school career. On the other end of the spectrum, my least favorite thing about my school is the poor security and overall safety of the school. Unfortunately, I would not feel safe in my school if there ended up being a threat to our safety. My school is small and holds around 400 students. I feel that because my school is small and not sufficiently supported financially, we lack in many important school safety factors.

I haved loved my experience at North Star so far. I actually moved to a lot of different schools when I was younger, the friends I have made here are truly the best. I can proudly say that I have had the same friend group since middle school and of course it's grown significantly since I began high school. I have had the chance to grow as a person through different extracurriculars I've participated in like musical, forensics, key club, chorus and ham radio club. When I got to high school I made it a point to get involved in anything I might be intersted in and it has truly made my life brighter.
North Star School District is located in rural Pennsylvania and has many opportunities for students. Even though it is a smaller school, the district provides opportunities for academic clubs, athletics, and music programs including a high school musical production each year.
