One thing I love about Grosse Pointe North is the clubs and availability to get involved. The teachers at North always give one hundred percent in making sure the students can receive the best education possible. My peers are kind, fun, and open to new people as well, providing a communal atmosphere. One thing I wish however, is a bit more diversity. Grosse Pointe is a predominately white area, and being Chinese myself, getting to know more people of a diverse culture would be a great experience. Despite this, I love my school and everyone that is affiliated with Grosse Pointe North High School!

What I really like about Grosse Pointe North is that it has so many opportunities within the school. You can take Spanish, Italian, German, and/or French! Learning a language definitely is a good skill to have. There are also tons of clubs to join, such as the art club, the drama club, the robotics club, the diversity club, and so many more! The staff is so caring as well. They make sure you're set for wherever you want to go in the future, whether that be college, the armed forces, etc.
My experience at Grosse Pointe North has been astounding. The teachers are so dedicated to their students and truly care about their success. They are committed to making sure that their students completely understand the material and are prepared to go on to higher education. The administration works hard to ensure a safe and inclusive environment. They have created a school culture that celebrates success and recognizes hard work. There are so many opportunities for students to get involved, and North students love to push themselves. This competitive spirit is good-natured and it brings the entire student body up. School spirit is something that is common among North students, and after attending this school, it's easy to see why.
