My experience at North Garland is really amazing! I really love the administrator , they always work hard to take care of us, to make sure the staffs are working well with students. The teachers over here are pretty nice, they help us prepare for the tests, college readiness. I also really love the diversity of this school, we have students everywhere all come over. I have some feedbacks such as the staffs need to be stricter with the school conducts because our school still have fights and other misbehaves.

The teachers at this school are passionate about teaching and fairly understanding, especially the AP teachers. They stay after school almost every single day for students, often staying until 4:30. The teachers here are dedicated to their students, however administration gets in the way of this. The administration forces the teachers to assign unnecessary projects, and force them to teach a certain way. They also get in the way with students learning by requiring students to bring a 3-inch binder with dividers and a planner everyday. I would love to see this changed because its just a major inconvenience to students as they are encumbered by so many assignments.
At North Garland High School, there is a community created by the students and staff, though not necessarily the administration, that assists students in determining what career fields they want to enter. These communities, most notably the medical and engineering communities, HST and PLTW, are the prominent communities at NGHS. Personally, I have been in HST more. In HST, the educators there have a devoted passion for introducing students to the medical field and believe wholeheartedly that any student that enters into the HST Wing has the potential to become a healthcare professional. It doesn’t hurt that the educators themselves were previously healthcare professionals themselves. There are registered nurses, chiropractors, an athletic trainer, and medical technologist teaching a variety of healthcare courses designed to be a stepping stone into the field of medicine for any student whose passion lies in it.
