I’m a graduating senior in the Class of 2020, and I honestly loved my
experience at North Side. Throughout my four years, I took Honors and AP classes, so I was surrounded by the best teachers and smartest students. My education was challenging but not overwhelming, and I was easily able to ask for help from my teachers and my counselors about anything I needed to know. It’s also very easy to make friends there, which means you get to have fun with them. I know some people hate it and trash on it, but I truly had a pleasant experience at North Side.

I had a good experience! I feel the staff and administrators better connect with the kids that make an effort to be social with them. I do feel that they focus very well on the actions taken against repeat offenders of the rules as well. I love love the support that came from the guidance off once at this school. They are continuously there to help and make sure that you’re doing what is right, not comfortable, for your success.
At school that I learn so much. I learn so many life and academic lessons. There are many interesting co-curricular activities too. I also participate in extra-curricular like Beta Club, National Honors Society, and Band. I am part of the school’s FCCLA club. FCCLA is also known as the Homemakers of America.Our teachers mostly teaches us with care and patience, and I am very grateful to the teachers. At school I have many good friends. We study, play and eat together. I love my school. In a way school has influenced who I am in so many ways.
