I graduated in 1983 and the school set me up for success with classroom learning and teamwork training. The 4 years that I was at Northampton County High School was some of the best years of my life. The teachers were excellent instructors. My family economic status was not good, so looking at going to college was out of the question. Right now I live in Houston, Texas and I attend American InterContinental University - Houston (AIU). Thank you for the opportunity.
I’ve been apart of Northampton County High School since 2O15. I’ve played volleyball for the Jaguars of Northampton County High School since I was Freshman. Northampton County High School there is a safe and productive environment at times. The teachers there aren’t as nice & friendly with with students, you have a few rude teachers & you have a few teachers that can easily bond with students. The staff & administrators at Northampton County High School are okay. I would recommend you coming to the view & check out my school & our sports academics.
I have been attending NCHS since Freshman year, which was about 2014. We have moved schools since , I think we moved from our Conway NC location in about 2016 to early 2017. We moved to Gaston NC which was a better building and didn't have mold. Even though now our building is a lot smaller. I really enjoyed my 4 years of high school. Also my classmates we share a lot of good memories together since middle school. They really prepare you for the real world and work.
