I have absolutely loved attending North! The teachers that work here are almost all above-par and excellent at not only teaching but being people who you can talk to about personal issues (the majority of them at least). The community here, while lacking in diversity, is open to those who personalize their experience and time at North. In addition, the clubs, activities, and sports offered are expansive and give everyone the opportunity to explore their true passions (if you don't find the club you want, make a new one). Personally, the grade culture was very united so that everyone, no matter if you were a nerd or a jock, communicated and interacted. But if you ever feel lost in your grade's culture, you can still find new homes in the clubs, activities, and sports you participate in. Finally, North supplies its students with SO many resources, from iPads to helpful guidance counselors. Created by the students, North is truly a special place- treasure the time you spend here.

As a younger student, my parents chose to move the family to the Great Neck school district to ensure a better education. North High is the culmination of this choice, one I can now say was definitively for the better. Though resources are excellent, and activities are very diverse, the high point of the school is the faculty, who (mostly) strive for a complete education for their students, especially those who reciprocate. North offers students multiple options, from education rigor to subjects of electives, to club offerings, and a relatively sane administration and PTA ensure that the school is heading in an even better direction for the future. For me, North is more than I could expect in a high school education—and one that helped me cash in my "million-dollar check" of potential.
I love my high school since it has so many different classes and electives that you can take. One of my favorites is orchestra since we have one of the best orchestra/band teachers in the country. In addition, my high school has tons of clubs and sports teams that will satisfy any student’s needs when it comes to extracurricular activities. Also, when it comes to safety, my school is on point because we practice many drills and we make sure that we would be safe if a certain situation were to happen. Lastly, the teachers in my school are excellent and I only have complaints about only a few out of the hundreds at the school. In conclusion, I think my high school is absolutely excellent and that it gives an experience like no other.
