I would most definitley do it all over again! This school's football program saved my life. I was headed down the wrong path until the coaches and my brothers helped me strive to acheive my goals. This school isnt your average high school. This school consists of teachers, coaches, parents, and students who genuinley care about you and want to see you reach your full potential, thats what makes this school so different from the rest. I would without a doubt choose this school again because it puts you on the right path to success!
Review North County High School
I am a part of the STEM program at North County High School and I absolutely love the STEM program as well as the school itself.

But I also have numerous friends outside of STEM who also like the school, even if they don't always like participating, they enjoy the teachers and appreciate most of them nearly as much as I do.

I think it's a wonderful school that, just like all others, could definitely stand to have some improvement, but the teachers, students, and administration alike have all made an effort to make it the kind of place we all want it to be.
I had the great fortune of being part of one of the most passionate and die-hard drama clubs on the east coast. It was these experiences that shaped me and my developing sense of identity. That being said, North County HS was, and is underfunded. The building itself was modified from an old middle school, and still has the same tiny gym lockers and urinals closer to the ground. The teaching staff is very green in some departments, and full of age and experience in others. While it was not the best school in the state, North County is a place I look back on fondly.
