North Scott High School has something for all students. Whether it is fine arts or athletics, there is a wide variety of things to be involved in. Along with soaring extra-curricular activities, the teachers and overall academics are at a high level, offering multiple AP classes and honors level classes. If they do not have a class you are interested in taking, they either create the class or let you go to the nearby community college to pursue it! The counselor care about all students and work very hard to make sure each student is in a good place at all times. Very nice facilities for all activities. All the kids who go here are inclusive and care for one another. The only thing that this school lacks is diversity. This is a school made up of many high-class white families. Overall, North Scott is a wonderful place, and the slight issues can always be fixed!

At North Scott Senior High School I really love how close the community is. I can tell that the teachers really care about our education and want us to succeed in our futures outside of high school. I also really love that there are many options to receive college credit. This ensures that we are ready for college, after we graduate. I think that our school could do a better job of finding local scholarships for us to apply for. Since it is a somewhat small community we all know each other pretty well. Some people like that this is the case; however, it is all based on personal preference.
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.
