My experience at Pickerington High School North has been outstanding! Pickerington North gives you so many great opportunities. I’m currently in the Pickerington North Marching Band and I’ve been given the opportunity to go to London, England 2017-2018 New Year’s Day Parade! This year I am given the opportunity to go to California to perform in the 2018-2019 Rose Bowl Parade. They give amazing academic help. I was struggling in math and my teachers made a great effort in helping me and even scheduled times before/after school to help out! Pickerington North is also very strict on bullying. If someone is caught bullying they give consequences no matter what. Overall Pickerington North is very caring to the students and give amazing opportunities to them!

Pickerington High School North has been fairly problematic the last few years. There have been lots and lots issues relating to student safety that the school has tried to solve, sometimes to no avail. Academically, there are various classes which range in difficulty to choose from (which is extremely nice) but the school is too GPA focused. For example, AP classes are graded on a 5.0 scale, but only if the student takes the $90+ exam. This means that a person with a B+ in the class who takes the AP exam, even if they get a 1, will receive a higher weighted GPA than the person who receives an A in class who didn’t take the exam. Clubs and sports are varied and it’s easy to make friends within these extracurriculars, but many are student-led, which means many are disorganized.
Overall it's very mediocre. Food's ok, most teachers are alright. However, there's an abundance of drugs at North, and the faculty just sorta ignores the issue. But the AP and CCP courses are well run, and so are the sports teams and the band. There are a lot of clubs at north as well. But, the arts department is extremely underfunded. (a sink in the ceramics room had been broken for 3 years, and only recently had gotten fixed) But yeah, it's alright.
