At Northside High School, I enjoyed the amount of opportunities they provide for their students, especially in clubs. They care about the safety of their students so much, that you can get suspended for bullying another student. They regularly practice fire, tornado, and lock down drills to ensure that each students to what to do Incase an emergency present itself. Students must wear IDs in order to be recognized throughout the school by staff members as well as to leave the classrooms. Northside High School does an amazing job of preparing students for college through the use of AVID and organizational skills.
Recently the school has gone up and major shift within administration. Many students at northside high school are left with holes in schedules or with out teachers for their classes. They will not let you take online classes until it is not taught at the school. Many teachers at the school are easy to talk to and many teachers at the same time are not. When it comes to sports it is usually the football team, boys basketball, boys lacrosse etc that is getting much attention while other sports are not as out there even though they have really great teams and coaches for them. Academic wise the school has a lot of AP classes for students to takes and a lot of great teachers that teach them. Northside High School is also the most diverse school in the county. Northside is also an AVID school that helps with students get ready for college, they also offer CTE studies that helps students further their education in what they want to do in life.
