Great Neck North High School Reviews

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.

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.
The teachers are invested in the success of each and every student! They are always willing to provide extra help before and after school.
