Most of the teachers and support staff at North High are wonderful and really have an interest in the welfare of the students, but some of them just move the children along. Dress code and discipline are non-existent and since it is an open campus students come and go unauthorized especially during lunchtime. Students this year were also unable to do research or printing reports in school due to the fact that they took away all the computers those students had access to. If students do not have a computer at home they have to go to the public library to get their work done. Since North High has become the school of the arts it has not changed for the better unless you want your child in band or chorus. For the student not in arts they get left behind.
This is a great school. Many of the teachers have remained throughout the years.
from what i understand there are a few teachers there that would bend over backwards to help the kids in the school, but there are some teachers that just keep pushing the children along so they don't have to be bothered with them again next year.
North High is a great educational experience for students. I have 1 major concern about my childrens attendance to this school. It is just way to easy for students to walk off campus anytime of the day. I also know for a fact how simple it is for anyone to walk on to campus and around it unnoticed.
North is an open campus school, which does not make for perfect student control. However the teachers are excellent, the guidance and administrative areas are better than Mariner and Cape, and the overall educational opportunities are the best in the West Zone. My son is in band. The band is exceptional and has a relaxed but well structured environment. Several students in the North band have transferred to North from Ft Myers, CYCA, Mariner and Cape just to be in the band. If your kid wants a good education, and wants to be in band, this is the best choice in the county.
