North High School Reviews

The academics are challenging if you want them to be, but for the most part are pretty easy. That being said, the teachers and curriculum are still good, and you'll learn a lot, just at a slower pace. There were two things I did not like about North High - the lack of diversity and the administration. There's not much that could be done regarding diversity, since the boundaries are already shifting south and soon students that live closer to South High will be feeding to North. The problem is that a lot of students live in an upper-middle class white bubble and seem to forget the privilege that lifestyle brings. The administration at North always bothered me, although I never had a means to speak up about it. One issue getting brought up by one student or teacher seems to spark the interest of the administration, leading them to overreach and try to solve "problems" that were never really problems, often through authoritarian means.

I feel like North is a pretty average high school nothing extraordinary. It offered what i feel like is the normal high school experiences, Friday night football games, homecoming, and prom. I enjoyed the teaching staff at North a lot the teachers are always there if you need help academically or even personal issues that you may be having at the time. I think they should definitely encourage students to be taking more AP classes to prepare them for college. They should also change the food that they serve at lunch its kind of gross. It doesn't have to be anything spectacular but anything would be better than what we have now.
At Fargo North the school is in good condition and it is always clean as well as having very nice althletic facilities. They just recieved a brand new turf, which is a huge upgrade considering the winters we experience here that cause us to not be able to get on the field in the spring. They also offer a wide variety of AP and dual credit courses so that students are able to earn college credit at a much cheaper price than in college. One other thing about the school is that the school resource officer is very kind and approaching which helps students feel safe.
