My experience at North Shore was great! Teachers and staff tried their best to give us the easiest four years of high school. While in the halls, many teachers would guard the halls to make sure students were getting to their next classes. The school was huge so of course, there were many people to take care of. Another thing I liked about this school was that the janitors kept it really clean and nice. This school was very organized and influenced students to keep striving!
My experience at north shore senior high has been different each of the 3 years I have attended. What I like about this school is that teachers are always available. You just let them know in advance when you're coming in. If it's for help on homework, making up tests, or even just to talk! Some things that I would like to see change is the way our education system is set up. When I'm school they make a huge deal on attendance. Now don't take me wrong attendance is super important but so is our learning material that will help us prepare for college. They focus so much on attendance that they tend not to notice the amount of kids that go to college and fail their basics because they weren't well prepared in high school. So instead of focusing on attendance so much we should consider making our students academically wise better to achieve that successful career in college .
