North DeSoto High School Reviews

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!

North DeSoto was my favorite of all schools I went to. I went to three other schools and this was by far the best. Everyone on campus is friendly and open to everyone. This school was a big family! Everyone was there for each other. They also always had foreign exchange students and made them feel at home. They have a variety of classes to take, including classes to help get you college readiness and/or credit. There were many activities to be involved in.
Towards the end of my high school career, there were more opportunities for AP and duel enrollment courses but there isn't much push to enroll in these classes. The primary focus is on the sports teams that aren't very successful
