North Atlanta High School Reviews

North Atlanta claims to promote academic excellence and accommodate each student in striving for success. A positive aspect about the school is the diversity; I enjoyed meeting people from different cultures and races because it allowed me to flourish and develop customs and mannerisms that I can use worldwide! However, my experience here has been less than satisfactory. The teachers do not show passion or concern for us students. Failing to submit grades by deadlines, not collecting assignments, counselors forgetting to submit scholarship recommendations (declining our chances to attend any institutions without financial accommodations), are few of the many examples. Furthermore, the tests do not consist of any material we have learned throughout the year. In conclusion, I rated North Atlanta High School with three stars because of the discrepancies listed, above are several changes that the school could consider in order to ensure our best interest.

With its beautiful location and convenient accessibility, this beautiful and luxurious school building is one of a kind. Being an 11-story building that's built on top of a lake represents Atlanta as a modern, potential, and elite city. The diversity of this school is incredible; finding people from every Latin American country, India, Bangladesh, United Arab Emirates, China, France, Nigeria, Russia, Italy, and many more! This school offers you IB, AP, and other accelerated programs that helps you get prepared for college and life. With that being said, I personally had the best experience in this school and to me, this is the best high school in Atlanta, Georgia. You receive a lot of help and if you're truly committed to master, North Atlanta High School will proudly represent you and will get you further than any other public high school in the metro area.
North Atlanta was alright. Some of the faculty in high positions showed a lot of favoritism towards certain kids. It seemed like the school did not put too much thought into school spirit and it did not really support diversity throughout the classes. A lot of kids were denied opportunities, more accurately were coerced away from great opportunities, because certain faculty/ staff was not fond of certain students. It was just a mess!
