North-Grand High School Reviews

North-Grand is an amazing school. There are many minorities in the school, and all or treated equally. I have meet so many amazing students in the school. The teachers would always lend a helping hand when a student needs. The principle would always try to spread positive words to the school, she has even put sticky notes on all the lockers in the school, each having a positive message in them. The students might be different opinions from others, but they will always try to defend their friends no matter the situation. I'm glad to have came into this school, If I didn't I wouldn't have met such wonderful friends and teachers. If I had the chance to go back in time and pick which High School to go to, I would still choose the same school, and experience it all over.

What I like about North-Grand High School is the way students are able to go on with their days. No one really gets into each other's business and you are able to become the person YOU want to be in life. There isn't really much tension that is often found in some High schools that have a very large diversity, it is a very stable environment. You are able to do the work that is needed, project due dates aren't are hefty as college courses (not until your senior year) but it is managbele.
There were so many opportunities when I was there. Now all over facebook, I see more and more opportunities being available which is great. The teachers are amazing and they do whatever they can to help students, they really do their best to make sure students gain the most throughout their time at North Grand.
