Another fail! THis school has been know for low income families and nothing but gang problems. Yes they revamped the school but this does nothing if the community and students do not use this advantage! I feel you put a school in the ghetto it will automatically be ghetto! they tried uniforms and still no better. To bad they remolded this school, they should have knocked it down sold the land and given the much needed money to another community caring school that has high test scores!
The best school ever, as long as you apply you will learn so much. It is also has a family type enviroment and no matter who you are you will feel apart of the school.
I believe the teacher's and staff are for the students. The students are trying and I give them credit for that. But the parents have to get involved with their child and show they care.Try to get the school to where it should be. It is sad that the grounds look so bad the field and tennis courts are a mess. Why?
I believe that North is headed towards greatness. The dedication from the Admin and faculty is changing the culture of North High. Students are begining to believe that they can succeed and they're college bound.
As a current student of North High im am dissapointed at the potential North has but does not exceed. Yes the test scores are down but im sure with our new princapal Ed Salem they will soar off the charts!!!The same with attendence!!!Also as a student forced to wear a uniform i do not see a change in anything! We should be able to wear student ideas as uniforms. All that has changed is a new princapal has turned north around i hope he contiunes. I qould recomend parents to let there child go here.
I believe the schools test scores should be better considering that the school has received a new principle and a new uniform policy. I as a student also understand that the attendance has gone up but the test scores should also go up. This school needs to be more comitted and parents also need to be invoved.
If this school had a good leader it would soar. A good leader would increase parent involvement which would directly affect all other aspects of the school.
I enjoyed my time at this school. I had heard stories while in middle school that were negative. I have never had a bad experience while attending. The cool thing about North is that you are also really close to the Career Education Center (I am also an Alumni).
