North Polk High School Reviews
North Polk has incredibly devoted and caring teachers as well as a curriculum that allows academically focused students to flourish and exceed what other school would allow. Having reliable access to advanced courses when I wanted them, especially college courses through my local community college, made advancing my studies while maintaining my high school studies and activities very easy. Despite this, some parts of administration are lacking when it comes to enforcing some school policies. A better focus on addressing student's non-academic problems would be a good change to the current system.
I loved the school honestly. I'll admit it has some problems, but it was still a great place! The teachers were mostly awesome, and the school is really good at accommodating students suffering from chronic illnesses. I missed nearly half of the days of my 10th, 11th, and 12th grade school years due to chronic illness, but I still graduated on time with good grades. As long as you make your problems known and communicate with the staff, graduating from this school is totally doable in this kind of situation. There's some bad teachers, but a good majority of the teachers are good and want to help you succeed.
The teachers at this school are able to provide a warm, welcoming environment for the student body. Additionally, they are open to closer conversations and one-on-one assistance, whether the student approaches them or they seek out the student. Teachers can provide a strong framework of adulthood, in both the content they teach and with the strength of their character.
