Grosse Pointe North is such an amazing school to attend! There are so many courses for you to choose from, from AP Lang to Dessert and Pastries, they are all great. This school is very well diverse. There’s all kinds of clubs and organizations for you to be apart of. I recommend it any day!

In my experience at Grosse Pointe North High School, I have been introduced to a whole new world of opportunities and endeavors. North has some of the best teachers in the state, and I can personally vouch that this is for a reason. The teachers at this school are encouraged to go beyond teaching from a textbook and to encourage learning in new and innovative ways that are both fun and exciting. Classes at North offer hands on learning, and you actually have to learn things through experience rather than just having someone tell you information. In these classes, you are also challenged to try your hardest and to achieve your maximum potential. Some classes are rather difficult, but due to this, they do a very good job at preparing you for the expert challenge that is college.
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!"
