I loved my time in the band, the teacher is very enthusiastic. I also appreciated being able to take classes for college credit in high school, it really helped me out once I got to college. There isn't a lot of variety as far as classes go, because the school is very small, and you do have to share a track/cross country team with the other schools in the district.

Although there is a lot of room for improvement at North Woods, the teachers and staff I had during my time there truly cared about their students. From the counselor, who always had her door open to students, to the women in the office, the people who work here care about what they do. Due to this being a small school, however, there is little to no wiggle room for extracurricular activities outside of football, volleyball, and basketball. Its a give and take.
I like North Woods because the faculty are nice and helpful and students and parents are very involved with school activities.
