This is our first year experiencing the highschool. Although the block schedule is very frustrating and confusing my daughter has mastered it. I'm unclear as to why that schedule is in place and feel maybe it's from lack of teachers, I think that a regular class schedule is much more comfortable to kids and would help them succeed more. That being said with the short time my daughter has been there she has had many positivea experiences and is doing very well.

I would rate all but one or two of the teachers at this school above average, I live and work in Fairbanks 20 miles away 1 mile away from Lathrop High School and I choose to spend an extra $20 per day in fuel just to go to this school, the automotive program is by far the best in the district, some will argue that and that argument is based on the fact that Hutch's auto program gets more funding and advertisement because it is in a more convenient area to be connected to the university auto program, but where North Pole excels is the Automotive Program instructor Jerry Million, he recognizes success in students and pushes them to do their best with a broad knowledge in automotive technology. The downfalls to this school is the way the in school "government" is set up, a student was stoned in class and should have been expelled but because he was black only got a lunch detention, I see alot of the administration being afraid to discipline African American children the same way they would discipline anyone else.

This school has gone down hill since my daughter was enrolled in 2008. The worst part of this school is the office staff. The two front office ladies are the worst office staff I have ever had the misfortion to speak with or try to get service from. They need to learn to get off their but and do their job. I have tried to call my daughter out various times, but I always get the voicemail and they have yet to send my daughter a pass.

I currently go to North Pole High School, and above all the others schools in this district, this one is by far the best. The students here get along with each other very well, and there are hardly any fights. There are many helpful teachers and students around if someone has any questions. This school has good academics for both advanced and average students. I am an advanced student and I do feel that I am being taught and challenged by my teachers. I also participate in the music program. I am a choir student and i enjoy it very much. The teacher is a great person, and the choirs sound beautiful. I believe this review will be helpful as an opinion from the inside of the school, and not simply as an observation. I thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts about my school.

If your student has any special needs or jsut a little extra help to grasp the concepts this school fails. Middle School my son got an occasional A and had a B-C average, hit honor role once and felt good about himself and school. The High School failed t get him involved forgot about IEP and basically just droppped the ball and fialed to make thier program work.

Great school for student socialization, the students seem to accept new students well. Teachers are very relaxed, allow the children to call them by last name only. Not a great school for academics, even after contacting principal and asst. superintendant, my child's individual learning needs were not met. There is not an overall attitude of doing what is best for each individual student. If your child needs extra help or is gifted, not a great school.

The quality of North Pole Middle School is incredible. The amount of work that the teachers out in is immaculate. The teams are incredible. They have cross country, wrestling football, softball, baseball, almost anything you child would want. there is something for everyone. There are plays hosted by the choir and drama teachers, and a variety of after school clubs that fit almost anyone. Parent involvement is especially great. They have ptsa, and parents can be involved with clubs or sports that heir child is playing.
