I love attending Wichita North High School so much. The people there are very friendly and caring. The teachers that work there are very helpful and caring. They want you to succeed and pursue in higher classes and education. Even though the school is primarily Hispanic, the school is diverse. We like to listen about other cultures and we invite them to come to our school.

One of North high's most significant characteristics, I'd say, would be the orientation and strength of its community. One would have to travel a considerable distance to find a high school that could rival the spirit and vigor found in the school's pep assemblies, just as one example. As for improvements, I would say that student involvement can hardly go too far. North is certainly not the only school to have this aspiration, but spirit and involvement should go hand in hand.
Wichita North High School has given me the best high school experience I could have ever asked for. The North High Redskins are the most enthusiastic and determined students in the state of Kansas. The pep assemblies at North High are a truly unique and exhilarating experience. The students never fail to show off their enormous amounts of school spirit. The school's sports teams are not the best, but going to games is always fun. Students never fail to show up to support their fighting Redskins on the field or on the court. North High is also full of diversity. Students of all backgrounds come together, ready to learn and work toward achieving their goals. The teachers are all very supportive and inclusive of all students. They really take the time to get to know each of their students and give them advice. Teachers, counselors, and administrators all want one thing for the students at North High: Success.
