I love the atmosphere of North High! It’s a very positive environment that enforces a lot of school spirit. It makes me proud to be a Hub, and coming into an environment with such an amazing staff. The staff is very caring of their students and builds a relationship with them. It’s nice to have all their support and knowing I have many people to go with an situation. Although, as a student I personally wish we were allowed to paint our parking spots, that’s the only change I would make.

As a student there I North Hagerstown I love how teacher are enthusiastic about teaching various student and the resources they provide. Its the only school in the county that allow student to enter the International Baccalaureate program which challenges students to step out of their comfort zone and to be college ready. The school is very cultural with different clubs they have to offer to every student to find a place to fit in. Its truly a very welcoming learning environment for everyone who come with an open mind to learn, make friends, and also life time memories with all the staff.
At North Hagerstown High School, I like that I'm able to challenge myself by taking advanced classes like IB Math Studies, AP English Lit, and Public Speaking. which I like because it gets me outside my comfort zone and helps me experience new and different things and types of learning. For extracuricular , I am involve in sport management for girls and boys basketball, football, and lacrosse. I would change the transportation, every students that lives in the North High should be provided a bus because they should have to walk in all types of weather conditions when their school has buses, I personal don't think that is right. Overall North Hagerstown High School is somewhat good.
