North Surry High School Reviews
While, as many students from all over would attest to, all schools have their faults, North Surry Highschool is a great school filled with teachers who truly care about your education. All of the teachers there try their very hardest to make sure their students succeed. They are all willing to help you through personal and family problems while providing a satisfying and healthy education. Everything that I learn at the school is easily retained throughout the year, for most teachers like to build upon subjects, instead of doing individual topics that have nothing to do with each other. The food there is great and healthy while having a solid variety in what to choose from. I am truly going to miss this school, and I plan on coming back to help with the music program in the future.
North Surry High School is a good school to attend, although teachers seem to pick and choose favorites and give them special treatment. The opportunities given at North Surry are incredible!
I had a great time! All of the teachers are amazing! As almost every student, we get tired and dont appreciate hard work. But the teachers really made an effort not to waste our time.
