The teachers at North Forsyth High School are very caring about the students. So far in all my experience within this school I have been treated with respect and can always vouch for how good of a person my teacher is. The students at this school are really just your average High School students. As well as this their are some really fun clubs to join! I am apart of the eSports and FBLA clubs and I always have a great time at every meeting. The only negative sides of this school would be the school lunches as they are not very good, but what can you do when its a public school?

Students here are kind and considerate. The teachers at North work hard to help students succeed and they want their students to reach out to them for help. Counselors are always available and wish to help students in need, as well. As far as academics, the classes are fairly challenging, offering tons of opportunity to learn, and there are many rigorous courses a student could take if they feel they need it. Classrooms, bathrooms, hallways, and the lunchroom are usually kept tidy due to excellent, hard-working janitors. Overall, North Forsyth is a good school for children to go to for meeting friends, easy learning, and opening up prospects in the future.
North Forsyth High School provided a large learning environment that allowed faulty and students to have a professional relationship that allowed trust and respect. Student involvement is extremely high due to the programs provided by North Forsyth, and this allowed for higher overall academic grades and low rates of student misbehavior. The faculty is very involved and can often be greeted in the hallways with a smile. The faculty also always had their door open if a student needed an adult to talk to.
