North Point High School has many beneficial attributes for a student. The school offers several STI programs including those involving law enforcement, cisco, engineering, welding, and many more! Within those programs, students are able to experience in the field opportunities. Along with those programs, North Point offers a hour free lunch, NEST, where students are able to go to tutoring or speak with their teacher about any questions they have. Along with trying to improve your grade, NEST offers a variety of clubs that a student may join. In addition, you can’t forget the school’s great school spirit. The students support each other at everything from football games to theatre performances. I enjoyed all four years while attending North Point and others have and will as well. #NPNation!

My experience with North Point has been great! I’ve had an amazing 3 years at the school so far. The school spirit is like no other and the sports are fantastic! We have talent. What I would like to see change is that, the school should put more money into the academic program instead of sports. I would also like to see North Point prepare students for the SAT and ACT more.
It's a great school. Students across the county are given the opportunity to apply to one of their STI programs. I was zoned and applied to it's Drafting program under the Industry category and I got in! They interview you and ask that you prepare a resume which, prepares you for the real world. The school is ethnically and socio-economically diverse which, allows us to intermingle and experience all types of people. North Point athletics have won countless championships. My high school is the largest in Charles County with a gym, football stadium, auditorium, cafeteria, and a natatorium. There are lots of clubs, organizations like FBLA, which I'm in, and activities as well as multiple opportunities for community service like the Charles County NAACP MLK Luncheon. Our standardized test scores are also impressive as we've surpassed county averages. Our College and Career Readiness Center is full of resources/information on scholarships and different college/career fairs.
