North Mecklenburg High School Reviews

Well, to begin, North Meck is a wonderful school. They offer a variety of programs. One of these programs being the international baccalaureate program, the cosmetology program, the automotive program, and the world language program. During my time of studying at North Meck, I was in the international baccalaureate program, and then my junior year I switched to just taking AP classes. At North Mecklenburg high school, there is a lot of diversity, caring, and excepting people. This is what makes north Meck great. Even though there are some occasional fights, and drama at the school, we always have a supportive security staff that always deals with our issues. We aren’t the best at sports, besides basketball, but we have great school spirit and you will always see huge crowds at football games even at games that we know we will probably lose. It’s not an extremely prestigious school, but there are teachers that genuinely care about you, and want you to succeed.

Overall I have enjoyed North Mecklenburg High School for many reasons. I am in a free program offered worldwide called International Baccalaureate. The IB program has been of great reward to me in my preparations for college. North Meck offers other trade school opportunities and is home to great athletics. Furthermore the reason I only give this review 3 stars is due to the old campus with many health issues including mold sites and pests as well as the lower class education standards in many of the classes. While North Mecklenburg may have great things to offer for some students, the majority of the student body is not open to larger opportunities to a better future.
I really enjoy the IB program at North Mecklenburg High School. It promotes holistic education focused on global awareness and balance in academics, community involvement, and mental/physical health. The classes are rigorous but the school employs some of the smartest teachers that really inspire students to continue learning. It's a wide-spread campus and very old which sometimes hinders educational instruction.
