Great Neck North High School Reviews
Overall, I really love Great Neck North in the sense that I have access to so many opportunities in the world of academia as well as extracurriculars such as science research and sports. However, there are times where I feel as though my high school experience would be richer if I were to go to another school. For instance, there is a lack of opportunities for demonstrating school spirit. While we have pep rallies, spirit week, and battle, we don't have fundamental events like school dances or widely-advertised sports games. Even the homecoming didn't have a dance or a football team. Even so, I consider myself lucky to be attending this school, because of the opportunities I have been given and the experiences I have been exposed to in the world of academia, such as a great science program and extensive AP preparation.
My experience here was amazing. I enjoyed my three years at this high school and am looking forward to my fourth year as a senior. The school is very caring, and the teachers can range from very good and excellent to sometimes outright terrible, however overall the staff here in the school is amazing. There is little to no bullying at this school and have yet to meet anyone who has been bullied in this school, all the students here are very nice and kind and I truly love this school.
Great Neck North High has some solid teachers, as well as lots of clubs and events you can participate in. The administration is ok, but the principal, who was once great and known for his creation of an alternate community school for self-motivated learners is too old and should retire. If you are a creative type and interested in theater or music or art it's a great school. The science dept is adequate and the math dept is weak. Also a good place for special education.
