North Rockland High School Reviews

What I liked about North Rockland High School are some of the friendly teachers and staff that have been kind to me throughout my high school years. On the other hand, there have been teachers that I really dislike and almost borderline hate due to them calling people out and making rude comments about the students, including me. This is a so-so school in terms of teacher quality as it varies greatly from one end of the spectrum to the other. Also, the food there is quite terrible. Nothing more to say about that. This is also a very sports-centered school which I personally don't like. I also don't like the fact that some students here have impudent behavior in general as well as creating a stigma to those who like anime or KPOP for example which is terrible and unfair to anime and KPOP lovers. The education they provide here is pretty average to say the least. Overall, not the best school but not the worst school either and I'd say average at best.

I went to North Rockland High School and I wish I could relive those 4 years over and over again. The amount of support the North Rockland community has for one another is incomparable. There are so many different ethnicities and cultures, but it's as if we are all a family. We fundraise for families/people in need like it's a second nature and our after school activities are endless. There is something for everyone!
I am an incoming senior at North Rockland High School. The years I have spent so far in the High School I realized the friendly community of students and teachers. NR works hard to fundraise for different clubs or to benefit the community. Teachers work hard to help the students succeed. We are NR! Only thing we need is new bathrooms because ours get clogged regularly.
