North High School Reviews

Throughout high school I was very involved in a number of extracurricular activities. The school provided numerous opportunities to meet new people and gain new skills. Most teachers were very dedicated to helping their students succeed. I liked the opportunity at North to take college level courses and receive my Associate's Degree at the same time I got my diploma with their Dual Enrollment Program. However, I would like to see the administration change in the way they handle 'problem students' and other disruptions in an urban school.

When I first enrolled to North High School I was nervous that the teachers and staff members wouldn't be as helpful as I needed them to be. I soon realized that I was wrong, everyone at North was very sweet and helped me through my first year there as a freshman. They always tried their best to help me succeed in all of my classes and introduced me to new possibilities like learning French. I am now a Junior in high school and they are still very kind and helpful to me.
I enjoyed the fantastic orchestra and theatre programs, and loved the incredibly faculty, who if you proved your worth, would respect and help you all that they could. The problem with this school is the poorly run dual graduation program— the uncaring college professors, the last minute schedules, and the difficulties that counselors face when working together.
