I love the extremely supportive community at Great Neck North High School! The teachers truly care about their students' success: going out of their way to assure their students' achievements. There is a great sense of school pride and all students are given tremendous opportunities for self-improvement and learning. Each student is even given a school issued iPad so they they may have access to assignments, information, and school announcements at the click of a button!
Great Neck North High School is an e extremely competitive school with a plethora of clubs and activities. If you choose to pursue a rigorous schedule with a variety of different classes, you will always score the best teachers. Otherwise they can be hit or miss. North High really struggles with diversity and a lack of leadership. Students are very close minded with their friend groups which leads to a very divided student body. Parents tend to be extremely competitive and become too involved in school activities (PTO) and ruin the experience for their children and other students. Sports is definitely not a strong suit of North High’s, and most collegiate level athletes pursue more challenging sports outside of Great Neck. However as mentioned above, if you choose to pursue a variety of challenging courses, and participate in after school activities and clubs, showing the ability to be a leader, then Great Neck North High School is the place to be.
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.
