PSJA North is a really great school, although it does lack in diverse teaching methods, academics at this high school are a really great asset to this school. It provides students to graduate high school with an associates degree in their chosen major which will prepare them for college once out of high school!

PSJA North Early College High School had the opportunities other districts do not have the privilege of having such as college credit courses. They offer a variety of clubs and organizations that are both enjoyable and helpful to the community. If I could change on thing in the school, it would be for my school to take advanced classes more serious. Not everyone cares about these classes and it's important for student, like myself, to have a more mature environment to focus in class and learn to the best of my ability.
Where every individual is given the same education, opportunities, and treatment. Where everyone graduates and knows what they’ll pursue in the future. This school has helped introduce me into the real world. As I walk the halls, I feel safe and secure with the courses I’m taking. My reasoning, the educators I’ve had up until now have given me the opportunity to experience what it really feels like to be seated in a college course. Some instructors even do the impossible/go above and beyond for students to grasp the concept of their course. For example, my Spanish literature teacher dresses up as characters from our novels. Why? So that we can always remember the funny moments in class that lead to us remembering details of the literature by interpreting the plays/novels for an exam. If there was one thing that I would like to be changed is the way the school handles certain situations. I believe that because of one student’s mistake the whole school should not pay the price.
