There are many things to like about North Desoto High! Coming from a larger school, it actually took me longer than usual to adjust to the new school. One thing i can say about North Desoto is that everyone is family! Never have I once been surrounded by such a large group of people who are willing to take you under their wing... simply out of the kindness of their heart. Sports (mainly football and softball) are another great thing about my amazing school. When football season rolls around, you will definitely see everyone in town! And the same goes for softball.. our girls are the best in the area! (Most definitely). Being moved to a small town into a small town school like North Desoto was a great idea and I’m forever thankful for that.

North DeSoto High School is truly such a great school. The staff there are seriously dedicated to student success both now and when they go to college. It has many clubs and students are able to put suggestions in if they would like to start a club about their hobbies or anything else (as long as it's reasonable of course). If I could change one thing about it however, it would be the fact that the cafeteria does run out of food sometimes, which means not all kids are able to eat during their lunch shift. This usually only happens every once in a while, but I really believe it should not happen at all. In conclusion, there is really only one thing I would change about North DeSoto High School; because overall, it is a really great school with people who really care about student success.
North Desoto High School is a great learning environment and has a very warm atmosphere. I loved that the teachers would help you whenever you needed it and they never picked favorites. Also having counselors who want to help you pick you a perfect college and gain you more scholarships is amazing. Something I wish that they would change is the high dress code policy. I understand short skirts and tight pants being against the rules. However, why would someone go to detention for not having there ID? You would only forget it twice and then have to go to Saturday detention. What happened to parent warnings? Despite the low tolerance for dress code everything else was good. I would gladly tell anyone who wanted a good education to go this school. There is nothing better than the Griffins!
