It's a pretty good school with Teachers that are willing to work with you as well as lots of opportunities for all sorts of categories, whether it be in terms of sports, extracurriculars, or improving your grade. My personal experience has been good in terms of the way they handle things as well as the interaction i've had with a majority of the teachers i've met. Its graduation coaches and Grade Year Counsellors are good at reaching out as well providing information and resources to help with preparing for preparing for college as well as for tests such as the PSAT and SAT. It's also very in touch with the student community with announcements and events such as Spirit Week. I'd say the school is probably the weakest in terms of Academics some times? It's more so an issue with certain teachers taking some time to put in grades which would frustrate some students, but it's more of a very small percentage of teachers. Overall, it's been a pretty great experience!

North Atlanta high school is a good highschool choice. I have been involved in the drill team, first aid club, and Spanish honor society. The diversity of this school is insane! This school is full of music. There are many talented people in this school and has been developed in these years. Such as the art teachers and music teachers that’s have been very good In teaching. I hope it improves in teachers teaching but overall I love it and I would recommend middle schoolers to go there no matter what !
North Atlanta is a school with very good academic programs and strong and caring teachers. North Atlanta excels in its International Baccalaureate program as well as hosting AP classes and the Dual Enrollment program in connection with the Georgia University system. North Atlanta offers a variety of programs that are suited to different students' needs and wants. A variety of electives are offered with very strong teachers that allow students to explore different subjects. There are many opportunities to further your skills in clubs and athletics. The school has a diverse, accepting, and vibrant community, student's are guaranteed to find a niche that suits them. If a student doesn't hold interests in the arts, music, athletics, computer science, or graphic design, they might have trouble finding electives they like. With such a large faculty, it's guaranteed that not every teacher is perfect but the counselors are pretty helpful and can help you figure it out.
