I like that the school has a lot of activites,clubs, and events for everyone to get involved. I love how our school comes together to help raise money or canned goods for great causes. I would like to see change in the way they deal with teachers who are being unfair. There is one teacher specifically that makes all of her students write in cursive for every assignment. That doesn’t seem like too much to ask of her students but most of us students weren’t taught cursive. I personally stopped learning cursive in 3rd grade and the classes younger than me most have never learned any cursive. So how are we as students expected to write in cursive when we get to highschool to pass a class if we were never taught it. The counselors, the principal, schoolboard none of them say anything about it or try to change the fact we are treated unfairly. Life isn’t fair but this is messing with our grades, grades we need to get in college with.

The school doesn’t actually care about you. All they care about is the students who get good grades, good act scores, good AP scores, etc. When it come to personal problems or complications in school, they don’t care at all. Also the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting every single day. They smell horrible and there is only two working sinks. Most of the honor and AP teachers do actually care about the students and their future but I have encountered a few who don’t. I’m suprised how they still have a job. :/
I love the active involvement of administration. Frank Jabbie, principle of Northshore High School invest emotionally into the success of his students and school. Additionally, Northshore High School has equipped me with a diverse courses selection to prepair me for my journey after high school. With the many different paths to choose from upon graduation, I believe I truly am prepared thanks to the faculty and student body, and most importantly our principle.
