Teachers are great! Football program suck along with baseball, coaches are not very good or fair. The classes are diverse and like switching out different teachers in every quarter. So many opportunities to be involved in the school, :school plays, marching band; spanish club; you name they have it.

The extracurricular activities are very fun at North Branch High School! They offer Band, Drama, Art Clubs, Environmental Science, National Honors Society, and Student Council. These clubs should maintain full attendance to each club/organization. The most popular club we have here is Student Council. Last school year, we have made homecoming/snowcoming, collegiant breakfasts for the alumni, and installed water bottle fountains to recycle over 200.000 plastic bottles of water a year.
I really liked that the staff was trying to do as much as they could to get all of their students to succeed. This high school also was very good at adapting to change, they wanted to try new programs to see what worked for students and what wasn't a big success. They were always looking into the futures of their students. A big problem I had with North Branch was their very large favoritism over some sports. I understand that some sports need more recognition than others because that sport is more successful than others but some sports need at least some support. Another thing that I need to say about North Branch High School is that I love most of the staff and they have had a huge impact on my life. They have made me want to pursue my future as successfully as I possibly can.
