I loved the school overall...but its no where no near AMAZING.
It was a good 4 years ranging from creating wonderful memories with your peers, to having multiple bonds with teachers and many more! Just, it was very overpopulated, and some teachers had poor motivation towards students etc. I'm glad to finally leave this school and move on towards my future.

I greatly enjoyed my time as a student at North Shore High School. They have many resources for students to utilize, and the teachers are very passionate about teaching. The school is academically challenging, and it helped me prepare for life in college. One thing I wish North Shore High School had was more diversity. North Shore High School is predominantly Caucasian, so I hope in the future they are able to have more diversity in their future classes. I would definitely send my child to North Shore High School.
I love the community. We think similarly; we act similarly - maybe even too similarly. One of the major flaws I feel as I look on my time as a high schooler is having nearly non-existent experience with non-white students inside and outside the classroom. Transitioning to the IB program was a good decision - for the workload of IA’s and other essays - I feel - prepared me for the more concenptual and long term work of higher education. But, many courses are inferior to their AP counterparts. For example, in my experience, Biology and notably the humanities are inferior to their corresponding AP program - at least in the first of their two years.
