My experience with the school is very good! The teachers are willing to talk to parents about student work ethic. The students also work very diligently in the classrooms to ensure that they finish and turn their work in on time. The classes may take more rigor than what most are used to due to a pacing that the teachers may have set. With that, teachers are more than willing to answer question their students may have. The grading system is very easy to understand along with the diverse student body. It's a well rounded environment that I think others would enjoy.

I've been going to North Atlanta High School since freshman year and i'm currently a senior. I enjoyed the amount of diversity ethnicity wise but personality...not so much. It's like the kids were kind of bland. You only see a few individuals that were comfortable with being their true selves. Honestly me included. It's not that there is a bullying problem or anything it's more of talking behind your back and not at your face thing. It's a two-faced issue. The school academically is amazing! They have so many resources and include IB and AP classes. The school also caters to many sports and clubs. I've been involved in the art program at North Atlanta since freshman year and I have absolutely no complaints. The art teachers are so helpful and really let the students express and make whatever they want.
North Atlanta High School offers an amazing IB program which provides students with rigorous courses to help prepare for college level courses! There are also several other options if your child wishes to partake in another path such as AP, honors, and even dual-enrollment which, allows them to take a few (or all) of their classes at local colleges and universities.
