North Reading High School Reviews
NRHS is a beautiful, state of the art facility. Most faculty is knowledgeable, but there are like in many other districts those teachers who do not know the content or how to deliver it to students. Also, administration runs the school like a regime. There are policies that are stated in the handbook as basically it's up to admin what the punishment will be. Students are. It allowed to be late (even when parents are aware) or students will receive detention. These students include students who have never been late. There are other areas that need to be revamped as well. NR is not a problem school not should students/parents be treated as such.
My experience at North Reading High School has been awesome. Year after year, NRHS pumps out scholars and successful students as a result of the resources available to them. The teachers are very knowledgeable and willing to help. The school itself is only three years old and it allows students to have access to high-end facilities and up to date technology. Each student receives a challenge by attending, but reaps the benefits later in life when out in the real world. North Reading High School truly prepares its students in a fashion that is unparalleled by other public schools.
Overall I have had a good experience at North Reading High School. I feel comfortable in my community and I feel as though I have the ability to be a proactive and effective learner. However, I would like to see the school system use their resources better. A lot of money was wasted in the new school system with things such as large TV's and new smart boards, rather than good computers for students.
