I am a senior at north high school, but like any senior I’ve seen Lots of changes through out my four years. Hallway expectations change, policy’s whether it’s about cellphones, computers or headphones. This school tries to encourage their students to work hard. They offer after school help and they even have Saturday school for those who want to come and work on their assignments. Some teachers stay with you one on one to help you. If you fail a class they offer you it online to remake that grade you failed. Overall I think north high is a good school to go to. You can always find a way to make it if you seeks for help !

North High is a school worth going to. I am excited to go to school to learn with all the wonderful teachers we have that dedicate themselves to benefit our education. North has the best education to offer in this area, we exceed in our academics. There is also a huge number of students who receive awards every month for the quality traits. Overall, North High is a great school full of diversity and people willing to help and be a friend. It is a school full of opportunity and achievements. I'd want to be at no place else other than North! Go Stars!
I love how North High is very diverse, you are able to meet many students with different cultures. Sometimes I wish we are able to learn all the cultures we have in our school. Overall everything great! The teachers and staff really cares about you. I’m really grateful to have this opportunity to learn at this school!
