What did I like about North Charleston is that they are more secure around the classes and hallways. They provide open topics toward students. The administrators were honest and more diversity around the school. North Charleston High school is being poor in college readiness, teaching, and resources for students.

I loved that NCHS had teachers who cared about the students, not only did they care about where you were in your educated, they showed interest in furthering education beyond high school. I would've loved to see the teachers recognized and appreciated more for all of their hard work and dedication.
I loved the fact that no matter the circumstances the administrators were always there to help or give great advice. For example the guidance counselors, gear up, TRIO, Coach Pearson, Coach Eady, Mr.Bradley etc. Sespite the student and the way many of us carry ourselves they never turn their back on you and they never allow you to give up on yourself. Although, I would like t better if the students worked together to make the environment better and everyone comes with positive attitudes and treat each other with respect.
