I totally love it here. the people are just thriving with electricity. everyone is "all over the place"! In a good way though. North Myrtle Beach High aslo has some of the best teachers you can have. for example my U.S. History teacher not only knows history, but he can also tell a story about 10 topics in one! I know right! One more thing about North Myrtle Beach, is the student spirit for our sports teams. Just last week, our volleyball team won their game against a school outside our district, not to brag, but i think it was our school spirit that won us the game. Finally our administration, our new principal this year (she was an assistant principal) is making a great senior year for me. her assistant principals are great as well. they're not only good at what they do in school, but they're great people in general. Everyday you see a smile on their faces. How wonderful!there's Nothing more you need than respect for one another. Now that's the key to success!

There is a variety of classes to choose from, and you can start AP classes as early as freshman year! There are also a multitude of clubs; I am involved in student council, drama club, DECA, and Beta Club, and I have a leadership position of an ambassador for the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy. Everyone has school spirit, as well, and the students are very diverse. Additionally, our football team is outstanding.
North Myrtle Beach is such a welcoming and including school. Everyone looks out for each other and takes care of one another. Teachers and admin really try to push they're students to their full potential. Sports are amazing! Whether or not you're on the team or in the stands, you are apart of the Chief family.
