I had an excellent high school experience. The teachers and staff at North Shore genuinely care about their students and want to see them succeed. Whenever a student needs help or assistance, it is right there waiting for her. Additionally, there are many clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities that students are not only told about but encouraged to take part in. I felt extremely prepared for college and attribute that readiness to North Shore's resources and curriculum!

I had a wonderful time at North Shore. Overall, I will miss my favorite teachers. My math teacher had taught me that math, even though it is hard, it is great to accomplish something that you struggle with. I have always struggled with math, she picked me back up when I wasn't confident in my skills regarding math. My photography teacher, she had taught me to inspire others and go for what I want in life. I am so happy that they were wonderful influences on me. They both were an inspiration to me. They really helped me grow as a learner. I feel like I am truly ready for college because of their guidance. I am moving forward, I am excited to conquer college. I will remember high schools a great experience, that I will never forget.
North Shore is a lot of things. I can speak to the IB program as I was a candidate my junior and senior year. Many of the teachers are well-trained in IB, but I think the shift from AP to IB is still in process. Generally speaking, all of my teachers are helpful to an extent, some will go out of their way to help you, others will not (really depends on the subject and/or teacher). Other than the IB program, most of my teachers were poor to average. The resources are meh...when applying for college YOU need to reach out, guidance counselors may help a little, but the heavy lifting is on you. Needless to say, North Shore isn't all bad. Although the administration is almost impossible to contact/nothing will come from it, I feel ready for college and the challenges it will bring. I guess I enjoyed North Shore, but it was too difficult/exhausting at times. Again, I took the IB so I am biased!!
