North Pontotoc High School has pros and cons, but overall I believe it is a good school. Several of the teachers care about the students' education, although some of them are only there for a paycheck. My biggest complaint is that several teachers are actually sports coaches who have been forced to teach due to lack of funding. These coaches care nothing for the subjects they teach and put forth no effort to make class engaging or memorable. However, again, there are several teachers that balance this out by putting effort into their classes. There are a myriad of extracurricular activities and events to participate in. The students have a functioning government. The facilities can be a bit lacking due to lack of funding, but are overall acceptable. An officer is present at all times to ensure safety. The food served is basic school cafeteria fare. The school does take its sports seriously, but tends to neglect its other programs in favor of football.

North Pontotoc is a great school, the teachers, the students, and the curriculum. I’m still a student and I believe North Pontotoc is very helpful in your learning and your transition from high school to college. They help you as much as you need as long as they know you need help. They bring in a lot of people to talk about college and what we can expect from college. North is a great school.
When I first came to North Pontotoc high school I was so excited to have a new start. But when I got in there I was so surprised of the fact the I’m the only Muslim(Arabic) girl in there , everyone would look at me as I’m a new creature that came from no where. I was shocked of the fact that this school have no idea of different cultures and more shocked of the horrible way they pictured MY culture. It was a surprise for me to see how they don’t look out of the frame they’re inside. Though I had all these things around me but the Staff and Students were nice.
