North Scott Senior High School Reviews
I would choose to go to this school again because in the big scheme of schools, North Scott is a very safe, nice community that offered a high school experience that was enjoyable. It was very easy to make friends in this community and find teachers/school officials that I trust and help provide the best education and life experience that they can. Overall, our character as a community is better than any other school district nearby and we pride ourselves on that fact. The school officials, parents, and students are generally respectful and have good sportsmanship (for all events, sports related or not) for all other competing schools. Although my experience with personal relationships with teachers and friends was great, along with good extracurricular experiences, the schooling was very inconsistent and the only way my education was made worthwhile was through the two-year math and science excel program, which has now been taken away because of standard-based grading.
I like going to North Scott High School. The people are nice and easy to get along with. The best relationships that I've ever had are with the teachers at this school. I feel safe at North Scott and I'm getting a good education as well. The administrators are very hard headed and they sometimes don't listen very well. It is very irritating. However, the student body does get some power in the decision making at North Scott, and that's a plus. GO LANCERS!!
Some teachers are very passionate in giving their lessons, giving above and beyond effort into lessons, homework, and helping students, but others show videos of other teachers teaching the subject, aren't clear on assignment details and due dates, and require extremely advanced testing over subjects that are barely mentioned in class. Some teachers require hours of homework, while others require none. There is no consistency throughout the teaching staff, requirements and expectations are different for each subject and each teacher. Some teachers require packets of homework that take five hours to complete and have no benefit to the learning of the subject and are not tested over the materials; it is simply unnecessary busy work that has no benefit on their education. Some teachers are biased in their grading, particularly in English courses and have no rubric for the students to go by. Some teachers do not actually teach the courses, just say what were supposed to be able to do, but not how to accomplish or work on that skill.
