My experience as a mustang is awesome, the activities, the learning experiences , the athletic program. Many reason everyone in the Houston area wants to attend north shore senior high is to high to count! The teachers guide and patients with the students there is amazing. They want you to pass and not fail. Failure is never a option

The school overall is great. Its a nice school inside but the staff are kind of rude. Not all, but enough that the school deserves 3 stars. Some staff members pick favorites above all students and exempt them from rules other students would be prosecuted for. Not only that, but the school would rather spend money on unnecessary things rather than fixing a broken toilet all last year and installing mirrors in the bathroom, working sinks, and just being less uptight on certain things. Other than all that it's bearable with friends, the nice lunch ladies and janitors, and teachers who are actually excited to teach.
Alright school. Have different hands on programs. A lot of certifications available( CPR, first aid, CERT, Medical assisting, Financial literacy, Microsoft, etc.). Teachers are very helpful and friendly. Administrators and teachers are willing to work with you if you put effort from your part. Hallways are overcrowded and still teachers want students to make it back In time and to use restroom in between passing periods. Overall, I had a great time throughout my high school years, did not realize it then, but now that I am currently in college I sometimes wish to go back.
