North Schuylkill isn't exactly the worst or the best, however the teachers are HORRIBLE WITH TEACHERS, there is no room in the hall ways and maintenance is not even commendable, they treat you like garbage, Gorge the janitor is the only true friend you can have in this school. No one has respect for the teachers and interrupt classes to flirt with the girls. Girls are all very "catty" and stupid. I never met a rich stupid person in my life until this new kid came here.

There are many clubs and activities offer here. The students really enjoy participating and seem to be very dedicated to the clubs they choose. Some of the most popular clubs and activities are Chorus, Band, Play, SADD, and TAT. The clubs are very well run by faculty in the school and help from the parents. Also students are even allowed to input their own clubs by the approval of the principal and a few other stipulations.
Some classes offered in this school are wonderful for students looking to go into higher education after high school. There are some classes that seem to be just fun instead of actually being productive, but there are a good mix. Overall the classes offered are from a wide variety, and are not hard to get into as long as you meet the prerequisites, which your guidance counselor will help you with that.
