Teachers are available for much one on one help. However at times there is teachers who are not so helpful and can be rude but nothing is done because we cannot replace the teachers. Many classes offered to students based on interest, and is a academically rich school. Safety is good with monitored entrances and our SRO officer as well as other law enforcement. Good staff and administration know every student by name. Decent food is served for students and staff with many different options or places in the school to buy food available. Pretty good sports ranking (Golf went to State finals I believe and won) except football, they play well but don't win often. However there is very little diversity. IF any at all, very very very little.

I enjoyed the sports at this school, especially the softball program and soccer program. The arts at this school were also very good along with the science department teachers.
I love my friends at North Country and most of my teachers. However there are a few teachers who take forever to put grades into Powerschool and we do the same thing in math everyday. Also, in english we don't do very much grammar or vocabulary. We watch an excessive amount of movies. Even though those teachers are really bad, my band teacher is really my backbone at the school. He is kind, helpful, and he makes school enjoyable.
