I came into Northshore my junior year of high school. I was the new kid at school but I received an incredibly warming welcome from the school and the community overall. The amount of staff and students that are involved astonished me. Every football game was packed. There always seems to be something going on each week. I was impressed also of how open-minded and friendly the students are in terms of who they hang out with. Since the city is small, the school is small, so students have a better connection with their teachers and classmates. Northshore is a very nice surprise.

Not enough electives to choose from for students. Too much emphasis on sports by the administration and little support by the administration for arts/music programs. Not enough language courses to select from. Latin and engineering classes were removed. No classes on American sign language which can be used for foreign language requirements. Currently, only 2 counselors in the entire school who have to meet the needs of 1600+students.
I have enjoyed attending Northshore HS. It is a safe and highly rated school. It offers many extracurricular activities. There is something for everyone!
