I'm going to be a senior at North Little Rock High School, and my experience there as a student the last three years haven't been too bad. I've played volleyball all through high school, so I can definitely say that my school as amazing athletics, and those athletics create an atmosphere for amazing school spirit too! As far as academics, I can also say that I've always felt challenged in my classes, and the teachers there were always there to help me if I ever needed them. However, with my school being so big with a couple thousand students, there are some times where I felt completely "over" NLR. Overall, I have pretty good experiences at my school and I've made some even better friends there!

They have a great program for kids with disabilities, such as Autism/Aspergers. They will set up an individualized IEP that for the student. The student could have difficulty adjusting to large classrooms, or problems with taking tests. The counselor and staff do what they can to make the student feel like they fit in. The student with disabilities is not labeled, and most school peers do even know. The school has inclusion classes for the extra help. This class has a second teacher that help guide the kids to succeed in that course. The school has lots of life and good at showing their spirit. Teachers and counselors communicate with parents, to keep them updated and give recommendations to keep the student on track. They want to see every student succeed and grow. This school develops great relationships between teacher and student. Not only on graduation day the families feel proud of their child, you see that even the educators get emotional.
I had a pretty good time here, through out my four years of attending. I made a lot of friends, most that I am still friends with to this day. I have learned a lot here as well. The football games were amazing, my graduating class had the best football team too!
