North is a great place to send you children to high school! Dedicated teachers, multiple opportunities for athletics and other after school activities. AP and honors classes and support for struggling students. Staff is wonderful at addressing both academic and social needs of students and make it a priority to offer support and encouragement to students. North is a great school that offers something for everyone!
A school on the rise to greatness. I love that you are always rewarded for your good work here, with certificates, plaques, medals, and gift cards. Even if the school hasn't had the best reputation, now it is a great school, where you will get a good education from great teachers.
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!
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.
