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!"
Review Grosse Pointe North High School
Grosse Pointe North felt like a home to me. the staff and teachers were always understanding of the students and accommodated them when needed. Many different levels of courses were offered, catering to all different types of learners, and providing classes that often would not be taught at other schools. I personally connected with the performing arts program at North. All of the performing arts staff work extremely hard to keep the program going and informative and interesting. I built my closest friendships at North and would never have considered picking another High School over Grosse Pointe North.
If there is one think that I can pick out that make Grosse Pointe North stand out from all the other schools in the state is its Norsemen Knots Club. The Norsemen Knots Club, is a special club dedicated to socializing with general ed kids or kids with disabilities. Members of this club eat lunch with the special needs kids or help them in their classroom. I have been a member of this club since I was a Freshman and I just think it is amazing that we as a school try our best to keep the diversity flowing and add in general ed kids into our lives. I joined this club thinking I'd make a difference in the special needs students but instead they made a bigger difference in my life. I am proud to call some of these special needs students my best friends.
