Niles North High School Reviews

I absolutely loved Niles North! As a musician, it was a wonderful place that helped me hone my skills. Being a public school, I think Niles North could measure up to any performing arts high school. The faculty is very knowledgable and is always willing to help you with whatever you need, whether it be music or just to talk about anything. Niles North is also a very diverse school. I felt there was a good amount of representation of all races and because of that, I've always felt safe as a minority in school. I've never had to deal with any sort of bullying or rude behavior throughout my experience at Niles North.

Niles North has excellent diversity and attention to student needs. The teachers are also the sponsors of many clubs like Dance Marathon and DECA, which have a larger presence in our community. This creates close relationships with the teachers. We also have an excellent physical education department, with teachers who are committed to making us better. However, some facilities of the building can be upgraded, like our fieldhouse and classrooms. More integration with modern technology can be used, as well as better resources. The student body has a form of communication to the administration through our student government, but needs can be addressed better.
I really enjoyed my high school experience and would love to definitely go back to it! Niles North High School's best quality I'd say, is of how diverse we were. There were students of so many different races and cultures that gave me an exposure a lot.
