Great leadership, great teachers, great continuous improvement mentality.

As a parent, I am very satisfied with the quality of education/attention my students are provided.

The size of the corporation can make a bit of logistical challenge for students in the southern part of the county. I believe the administration works to minimize the impact.

Fundamentally, teachers are prepared, available, approachable and caring of the students. Administration is engaged and active. The overall cultural is as academically challenging as one wants it to be and socially nurturing for all.

I liked how kind most of the staff was but I would have liked to see teachers who were more understanding along with students who held more respect for others. I also would like to see more people within the school open to diversity and uniqueness. I feel our school is clean and well taken care of by the janitorial staff. I also feel that our school holds a good number of students. I appreciate how some faculty will take all students under their wing when they are struggling. But some teachers come off as distant, rude, and close-minded to students. I feel that some teachers here are simply not fit for the job or not trained for the learning environment. Many lack communication and this can make learning difficult.
I liked Huntington North High School because they offer many hands-on opportunities for several different career paths. I am currently in a community elementary school as a cadet teacher. They offer internships and classes to get certifications. There is a wide range of classes at Huntington North, from basic freshmen level classes to challenging AP classes. There are many teachers and staff members who care about the students. There are a wide range of students at the school and many of them care for each other and are willing to help others. The sports programs are excellent as well. Not all teams are state champions, but they work hard, are passionate, and are a great source of entertainment for community members. Sporting events bring the entire community together, and people in the community are loyal fans to their school.
