North Pointe Preparatory Reviews

The only thing I truly enjoyed about North Pointe was spending times with my friends. The administration is corrupt and tyrannical; students were punished based on how particular staff members felt about them, and favoritism was evident in every aspect of the school's culture. The administration cared much more about funneling funding into their parties and one particular staff members precious media class than they cared about paying teachers adequately, making sure our supplies were up to date, or cultivating at least a decent learning environment. For what it's worth, going to North Pointe did give me a strong sense of what's right and wrong, and taught me not to be silent or complacent about its bureaucratic cesspool.

North Pointe Preparatory provided me with countless amazing memories with fellow students and teachers. Through the fine arts programs I met many amazing lifelong friends, and even though the band program had many difficulties and was in the rebuilding stages throughout my high school career I still had a very useful and beneficial time participating in the program.
I have had my fair share of ups and downs with NPP, but I know that if I went anywhere else I would've missed out on a great culture and a small community where everybody knows everybody. As I am leaving the school, I wish that its quality of faculty improves because that is its only downside. I have had so many teacher replacements and substitutes to the point where it was sometimes difficult to learn and keep up. I hope that experience only helps me in college because I have learned the one ability that I find most college students complaining about- and that is independece. I, along with my peers, have maintained the ability to learn with or without a teacher, and with each other.
