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!

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.
Great Neck North High School is an amazing school. The teachers and students are so nice. My favorite part of it is how good Guidance Counselors are! They are terrific, they will help with literally anything that you need. Also the campus is beautiful and open.
