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
Hands down a great school! All the teachers ive encountered have helped me grow as a student. The school is a safe place thanks to a great staff and a few police officers. There are lots of athletic programs and clubs to best suite any student. Thanks to my coaches and teachers i am now on my way to lead a succesful path through college and to a fantastic career. Norh County doesnt just teach you standardized subjects, it also teaches you valuable life skills you will need to utilize every day.
My time spent at North county was truly unforgettable. My life changed, I made new friends, lost others, found love, academically soared and learned many life lessons. The faculty at north county was 50-50 split on those who were worth the world and those who weren't worth spit. The clubs were wondrous fun, but most things unrelated to sports did not get a lot of funding. In my four years I had 2 principals. The first was an amazing man who cleaned up the filth our school fell into, the second was a woman who was an absolute joke and received little respect. I entered the STEM program my freshman year after spending five previous years in the program in another county. They did a lot of things well, but they also have much to learn about bringing the program to it's full potential. The music programs at the school have so much potential but desperately need teachers who are trained in each art to teach them. It was a good school, though probably not the best.
