I really love this school. Great diversity, great environment. The teachers, in general, are pretty good, and I always feel challenged. There are several AP classes and clubs. Basically, there is something for everyone. Go Norsemen!

I enjoy attending Grosse Pointe North High School. I feel like there is a balance in culture, gender, and intelligence. This is one factor that makes this school so unique: it's diversity. There are children attending this school from all different types of backgrounds. Another factor is their staff. Grosse Pointe North's staff and faculty are almost always smiling and are genuinely happy. From first-hand experience, they create a warm and welcoming environment for their students, as well as caring for their individual needs. Among other reasons, Grosse Pointe North is the perfect fit for any student wanting a safe, enrichening learning environment.
I enjoyed my four years at North. The teachers really helped students learn the material they need for the future. I also enjoyed playing sports at North, being able to have a connection with some of my teachers outside of the classroom. Some things I wish North would do is help kids get scholarships because it’s a lot of kids who do really good in school but when it’s time to go off to college they might not have the funds but those scholarships would help!
