I have never been denied access to help or assistance in the school, whether it be school related or not! They are always there for stundents, mentally, physically and emotionally. The well being of students is the top priority and learning is based around students needs. The school itself is in well condition, always clean. The community itself is amazing, very welcoming and supportive.

I have enjoyed my time at Plymouth North, but I do see room for change. One place I find room for improvement in Plymouth North High School's environment would be student involvement in policy changes. Many times the student body has experienced neglect in administrative decisions that affect us directly. This can be seen in the 2014-2015 school year. Administration decided the school needed a new schedule, and had two options to pick from. Instead of getting the entire school's opinion between the two options, they kept the two options a secret and merely went to the teachers. They never considered asking for student opinions. We as students deserve a chance to have a student representative for these decisions to display the a new point of view.
Overall, Plymouth North has been a great place. I have learned so much from my classes and have made lasting relationships with my peers. But, the school administration needs to involve their students more, without question.
At North there are some very good teachers who care very deeply about the students, which really makes the entire high school experience that much better for all the students whose lives they touch. It’s also good how it is relatively easy to start a new club, which gives students the opportunity to implement change within the school. However, there are a some aspects of North which are less than satisfactory, such as the lunchtime experience. The time provided for lunch is extremely short, and the food is atrocious; it is neither nutritious nor appetizing. Also, the administration can be rather difficult to talk to and give constructive criticism regarding different issues which arise within the school.
