North Dorchester High School Reviews

I love how the teachers are vested in their students. This goes beyond the classroom. The teachers support the students at events such as sporting events, dances, fundraisers. The teachers go above and beyond, a lot do not have high school age kids or kids at all and they make sure to support us through out all we do.
The administration and staff are wonderful. The are approachable and make it easy to talk to them if needed.
Although we do have a great new school, the sports programs are always lacking. We need more to invest in the sports program. We may not be the best at every sport bit we definitely have school spirit and support each sport we do have. Go Eagles!

The school offers many opportunities like teacher assistant, dual enrollment, and internship opportunities. It has many rigorous courses and excellent teachers that lend a hand to help all students learn and succeed in the future. The environment is very comfortable and welcoming. Counselors do a good job of informing students of new opportunities to make their college career paths easier and more effective.
The learning environment isn't very inviting. The teachers seem non enthused to be there. Many students disobey teachers and administration but suffer no consequences for their actions so they continue to do it. The topics that we are learning at this school are the best that they can provide while also supplying technical programs for students to get a head start on their career choice/path. Our school also teamed up with our local community college, Chesapeake College to do "dual enrollment" so that us students that are planning to attend a college, university, or a trade school. can get our education started at a much reduced rate.
