North-Grand High School Reviews

I would like for some of the teachers to be more strict with some of the students. Reasoning, is because many students disrespect certain teachers that appear to be in their own words"soft". In order for this assumption to become demolished some of the teachers must stick to the policy when it comes to grades and punishment regardless of who the student may be. Good Behavior being essential when relating to grades as well as time class is attended which is abided by, by a majority of the teachers but not all. Also more races such as Native Americans and European Americans.

North Grand High School has always encouraged their students to reach their full potential. North Grand has changed the game in CPS. The help offered in this school has made education for several students easier and has challenged many of us to see what we are really made for. This is what I mostly like about North Grand , I was never left without any help and neither of my peers. Counselors and teachers constantly check on students to make sure they're on the right track to graduate. Programs offered at North Grand has helped many families with problems for no cost at all. I , a senior my self, acquired a lot of help from a program at this school. It helped me with knowing everything about college and my perfect matches. North Grand makes sure that their students seek into attending college after graduating , even if a student doesn't look forward to going to college. I wouldn't want to see any change at all, North Grand High School is perfect and adequate the way it is.
North-Grand High school is an excellent neighborhood high school with the adequate resources to help students reach success beyond high school. There are 3 career technical programs: Allied Health, Engineering, and Culinary arts. These programs allow students to interact with professionals and expose them to more options than they could ever imagine through internships and conferences. Aside from these programs, North-Grand has various after school activities to keep students engaged after hours. One specific program named legacy leaders teaches its students about leadership and what it takes to make a difference in the community. One of the greatest features of North-Grand is the staff, teachers at the school are passionate about what they do and students always have a helping hand. This school truly cares about its students, the staff is wonderful and the programs are amazing.
