My daughter graduated and my two boys are still there. I feel the entire school and community is dedicated to each students success. Our community businesses are engaged to student success, this includes the areas Big Salad holding a contest for the business students to create and sell a sale or sandwich. The local hospitals allow our students to round with Dr's, attend surgeries for the applied med class. Our AP Gov class goes to Washington DC and meets co gressmen and Senators. The atmosphere is positive and encouraging while discipline is delivered equally and fairly. There are over 50 clubs to choose from, 5 languages are offered, over 60% of the students participate in a sports. The Quiz Bowl team has made states and qualified for Nationals multiple times! "This is what we do here!"

Every teacher has a different style they go about when presenting information and some do a really good job while others (in my opinion) could do better. Most teachers create a learning environment that draws the students attention into the subject giving them real world examples making what could be boring facts into something relatable. This teaching method is visible throughout most of my school, other teachers will go about teaching in a different manner that is sometimes more difficult to take information from (at least with my experience). This method is just as common a more challenging way to teach for some however it can be just as effective for some students. A more factual, book based class can make it easier for students to obtain the information while for others it can be difficult to sit through when they can't relate to the topic. The staff that makes up the school are found at most student functions whether it be a football game or a choir concert they are always supporting the students and the school. They show interest in what we do and our endless abilities to try and turn the school into more of a close community. I feel comfortable talking with just about any staff member, they are all approachable and reasonable when it comes to things. The teachers tend to have different grading scales however they all end up the same in the gradebook under the same scaling. Some teachers are more consistent with grading things on time while others more or less slack when it comes to getting grades in. It can be a challenge on its own when trying to have a couple of hundred papers in all at the same time, it would become tedious after a while. They all have lives outside of teaching so when I get frustrated when I cant find a grade that should have been in days ago I put myself in their shoes and can understand where they are coming from.
My experience at Grosse Pointe North has been great! For the most part, everyone is very accepting and there aren't really any cliche high school "cliques". The school has a great vibe to it and the students and staff have so much spirit, and care a lot about academics and athletics.
