I truly do not believe I would have ended up at my dream college had I not attended North Henderson. The teachers at North are extremely dedicated to providing a quality education to the students, and bring a motivated attitude into the classroom every day. It falls to the student to live up to the expectations set by North and its educators, which in turn creates a well-rounded and high-achieving member of society. While every class may not be an easy A, when the effort is put in, it is a well-earned A. Being a student at a school that exceeded academic growth expectations for four years straight reflected the hard work that is put in. The teachers and administrators at North care about creating an environment that fosters academic and personal success, through extracurriculars and advanced courses.

It wasn’t the best experience. I went to high school there and some of the teachers would pick on students and really picked and chose who they liked and would give them a hard time like the softball coach Kilpatrick she was the worst! Glad she’s not there anymore!
North has some really good teachers that really try to support you, but there are other teachers that just shouldn't be teaching because they don't teach you anything or they put you down a lot and make you feel dumb. It's hard to get in contact with the counselors, and a lot of the higher ranking facilities tell the students to act like young adults, but then treat the students like elementary schoolers. It's really frustrating.
