North Reading High School Reviews
Some of the teachers at this school really seem to care about each individual student, to the point where I'd go to some of them with any issue I have, and I really confide in them. Others, however, seem to not care a lot about the students. They barely ever actually teach, and just pile you with worksheets while they sit at their desks doing who-knows-what on their phones/laptops. The main reason I gave this school a 4 star rating is because of the clubs and activities. We have amazing sports teams at this school that win states every year (soccer, cheer, football, hockey, track, girl's tennis, girls basketball, softball). Not only that, but some of the clubs there are absolutely amazing. I am especially fond of the amazing theatre program. The people in this club truly feel like my family, and I feel so supported by not only my peers, but also all of the teachers involved in the club. On top of that, the club puts on award-winning shows every year.
North Reading HS is a suburban public high school that offers a general education. It has a very strong fine arts and performing arts program because of the dedicated staff. They offer a range of other programs. Science and math clubs are weak. STEM especially AP prep for chemistry and physics is the lowest performing program of all advanced placement classes at the school. Many kids get into their first choice colleges but not the top US schools, no MIT, HARVARD, STANFORD...
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.
