North Pocono High School Reviews

The school is great! There is something for every student. There are a wide variety of clubs, including Mini-Thon, Mathletes, a theater club, and Science Olympiad, to name a few. There are also plenty of sports teams, including rifle and lacrosse. In a normal year, there are plenty of student council-sponsored activities to enjoy and fun themed days to help students relax. The curriculum is great, offering 4 tracks of study (general, academic, accelerated, and AP). Students can easily mix and match levels, so if you're not the best at math, you can take an academic course, but also stay in a more advanced history class. The teachers are wonderful and put a lot of time and effort into their lesson plans. The diversity and food are not great, but we're a rural PA school. What can you expect? Overall, NP is a great school and I definitely feel prepared for the world ahead of me.

North Pocono offers a multitude of extra curricular activities along with sports that every coach does a great job coaching and raising young adults. There are over 20 AP classes that all have great teachers. For me personally, they have helped me pass every AP exam I’ve taken and pass each class with flying colors. The community is so supportive from the students to everyone in town. It is such a great area and I am happy to say I am North Pocono proud!
North Pocono is not the best school in the world, but I wouldn't rather be anywhere else. My music teachers are some of the most helpful and kind teachers I've ever had and I value every class and lesson I have with them. The school offers multiple AP classes and also sports, clubs, and art programs. I believe that I have received a very good education here. However, some things that I have a problem with is the way administration deals with certain situations. There have been multiple situations in which my friends have been treated unfairly or in which administration has not taken enough action in situations that have affected me or my friends. Overall, nice school, mediocre administration.
