North Caroline is your stereotypical little hometown high school — bulldog logo included! The staff are friendly (for the most part), the food is great (sometimes), and the classes are challenging and engaging (nothing to make fun of here!)

North Caroline is an average school. They have really good sports programs, but kind of sucky arts programs making it even out to an average school. They are really good at preparing students for tests like the Parcc and SAT's, but I personally feel like I forget everything after those tests because that's why we were learning. Most of the classes seem kind of pointless after what ever big test they are preparing for.
North Caroline high school is like one big family. All the staff and students know and love each other. They help us with what we need and make sure we are up to date with everything. Also, the teaching is excellent. You can stay after and get extra help, but there also many other ways to get help, which ever one works for you!For me, my experience has been the best i could ever imagine. I'm so thankful to have so many people surround by me to help and guide me though hardships.
