Northside College Preparatory High School Reviews
Review Northside College Preparatory High School
Northside is an interesting school. It is one of Top Schools in the US, which makes it infamous for it being academically challenging and difficult. Tales of despair and struggling make every 8th grader scared to join this small school. However when I entered it I was smacked with the truth, it is a visually intriguing school. The shape is very strange and the inside is even stranger, with art hanging everywhere and colors splashed on every wall. But the best part is the people; the students, teachers, and staff are amazing people! They are open with whatever you believe in and everyone shares their interests and make stereotypical high schools (High School Musical, Mean Girls, the whole gag) look like lies. It is an awesome school, and I'm glad that I am academically challenged for I get to meet people who changed my life.
I am entering my junior year of high school at NCP, and there is only one thing I dislike: the workload. While it is something I dislike, I still would not change it. I have become a more disciplined, confident, and organized person because of my school's culture. While the workload is multitudinous, it is certainly manageable. I love being able to arrive to school at 6:30 a.m. each day to peacefully work on projects. I love witnessing the passions and self-development goals that my teachers have outside of school. I love the friendships that I've developed with the most loyal, kind people I've met. I love running across our school's beautiful back yard during my lunch time. And above all, I love the respite from classes that our colloquium day provides every Wednesday!
I love the encouraging and nurturing environment. Most of the students and teachers here are genuine and hardworking. However, the math/STEM programs here need a bit of work. The IMP method used to teach all classes up until trig hinder the ability of kids to practice. Instead of fostering development through repetition, the curriculum touches on topics once or twice in unnecessarily and absurdly long passages/"unit problems." Honestly, the traditional methods used in the American school system are better than this "IMP" program.
