North Allegheny High School is an educational powerhouse. The academics and teachers are top notch with a few exceptions when it comes to teachers. There are plenty of extracurricular sports and activities to get involved with as well. Many of the extracurricular sports are played at a competitive level. Counselors, despite the large student population, are very good and seem to genuinely care for each every student's well being and success. Where it falls short is the cleanliness of the cafeteria and the quality of the food served. The tables used in the cafeteria are rarely cleaned, even when coming back from a weekend or a break they don't even seem to touch them making them quite disgusting. When it comes to the food there are very few options that provide a filling meal. Many taste like cardboard and are quite expensive.

North Allegheny is a school of excellence concerning their background and the future ahead. Although it is sparse in diversity, they never fail to include absolutely everyone who attends school with programs such as GSA and Multicultural Student Union. The teachers genuinely love their job, which ultimately motivates the students to love learning and come to school with an open mind. However, the school is extremely competitive and can cause high stress levels due to the amount of pressure surrounding good grades and getting into top colleges. Nevertheless, it is arguably the best school in Pennsylvania.
North Allegheny has provided me with experience with of all kinds of people. I have had various truly wonderful teachers, who are intentional about developing their students and curriculum. My experience has not always been as wonderful as I have had some teachers I strong feel should not be teaching. This being stated, I would like to compliment the acceleration in the curriculum at North Allegheny. It known to be a very good school and kids are prepared for college. In this aspect I think North Allegheny does an exceptional job. As far as extra circular activities go, I would say the focus should be fine tuned. I think team sports should be decided by outside judges. North Allegheny does tend to cover things up, a big money school, and all politics when it comes to sports. My time at North Allegheny has challenged me and developed me in ways I thank them for.
