North Davidson has been a decent school to attend. They focus way too much on sports and allow the football/baseball players to get away with everything. Some of the teachers are great and really care, but some are very apathetic and don't help. There is a major disparity between the AP and regular kids, and if you are not willing to work hard you will fall behind and not receive help. This is the best school in the county to send your kids to so at least there's that. It has prepared me well and I have passed all of my AP exams. It's often cold in the building and needs renvoation. They don't have warmwater in the sinks which is frustrating and they lock the doors so it is hard to get around the school.
North Davidson High School is an average high school. There is nothing really special about this school. My favorite thing about the school is going to the football games. The atmosphere in the student section on Friday nights is great. Administration keep all the doors locked except two. This is a big inconvenience to all the students. I know that administration is trying to keep safety as a number one priority, but it does take a lot fo extra time to walk around the nearest unlocked door.
