Over the four years I attended St Charles North High School, I was a bit of a wallflower, I didn't grasp at any of the provided opportunities, and activities that I could have been apart of. This being said, my personal experience with North was through other students and friends eyes. They told me about so many different clubs, associations and sports they were apart of, and how happy and fulfilling it made them. As for education, I could not have asked for a better school. Although challenging, the courses I took at North were perfectly taught and prepared me for upcoming exams and obstacles during my first year of college. Almost every teacher was respectful, helpful and determined to better the community of the school with knowledge. Overall, I was pleasantly content with everything North offered me, and am so thankful that I attended.

The school is very judgmental and unsupportive if you aren't perfect. The administration is basically a massive joke and doesn't care about the students. However, the teachers are for the most part great, except for some explorer classes where the teachers seem to be making it up as they go along. It is also unsafe as they do not provide support, tolerate bullies, and former students can easily sneak in. They badley need a field house but instead wast money on a turf field, and sports are very unfair between girls and boys. There is good acdemic recorces but one of the conclers littrley told me that high school doesnt really matter and they admin is overall very rude and uncaring towards the students.
SCN is mainly a very good high school. The teachers genuinely care about their students and only encourage moving forward. They always want the best for their students and will do anything to help them succeed. The school has a variety of classes to choose from based on ones interests, which is important. If I could change one thing, it would be the counselors. Personally, I believe they should get more involved in the junior/senior grade level because of determining future plans. There are too many kids, and too few counselors to help guide them onto the right path.
