As a member of the Magnet program, my experience at NCHS exposed me to different cultures and people around the world. Your high school experience is what you make of it, and there are so many clubs and interesting classes to join (and it is very easy to find a teacher to sponsor a club)! Most of the students are friendly, and while some teachers care a lot about their subject, it feels like other teachers are not as passionate about teaching. I felt that there were lots of opportunities offered that prepared me for college (college visits, optional aptitude tests, AP classes) and my counselor was always eager to discuss higher education with me. The school culture within the Magnet program is very close-knit, but I feel comfortable talking to students outside of my Magnet-required classes as well.

I love this school tbh! I'm a junior and I'm not looking forward to leaving. The school really is what you make it. The school spirit is high and although it may feel stupid, it is really fun to participate in school events and activities. There is a lot of course options and a lot of electives. Most teachers are willing to help you. Of course like any school there are annoying staff members or annoying students. Everyday something interesting happens. We have two campus police who can either be very helpful or very annoying, beware of drug dogs, they come often. The main building can be kinda gross as it is super old, but honestly you get used to it. The school is very diverse and you meet tons of different people. Football games are so fun. The school as a whole is pretty great.
It’s generally a pretty great school. In my opinion, the magnet program is pretty great; it’s challenging without being overwhelming, and most of the students in it take school seriously. There’s a lot of cool international-ish opportunities for magnet students, and they make you take a lot of AP and Honors classes, which definitely help with college applications. The students are generally pretty nice; it’s not a utopia or anything, but they aren’t mean just to be mean. The student body is also pretty diverse and accepting, which I love. The teachers are great, too. They all seem to really care about what they’re teaching and about their students. The school itself could use some updating, especially in the bathrooms, but overall it’s fine. Some of the administrators can be annoying, and they recently made the dress code worse, but it’s not heavily enforced anyway.
