North Pocono is a great high school. The school is relatively new and in excellent shape. The teachers are all friendly and most have a good idea in the subject they are teaching in. North Pocono students and faculty are greatly involved in the community, and in return the community does a lot to help out the school. There is always an officer in the school and sometimes more. Students always feel safe when they are at school. North Pocono offers a wide array of AP courses and dual enrollment courses with Lackawanna College .

North Pocono High School is an amazing place to grow. I loved the welcoming, nurturing, and enthusiastic teachers, staff, and coaches at the school. NP is a great community with a lot of pride. In times of tragedy or celebration, the North Pocono district comes together. I learned so much at the school and am forever grateful to the dedicated teachers who guided me! Its AP program has bolstered over the years, and its new building is beautiful! Though the community is not as racially diverse, I don't think it should limit NP from being deemed an excellent place of learning.
I am so blessed to have the opportunity to go to North Pocono High School. The faculty provides a variety of opportunities, clubs, sports, and academics to the students to help them have what they need to enjoy school. Also, North Pocono has a dedicated community who gives their time and energy to fundraisers and other events that take place. Not only the parents get involved but the students do as well, and it's great to see the community come together.
