i am a student at north central high school and personally i don't care for the school very much. Yes the academics are great!...but the school has a lot of discipline problems. There are a lot of fights that arent broken up until its to late. i feel they should try other discipline techniques besides expulsion. Thats the only reason nc looks like such a nice school. They just kick out all of the troubled kids instead of trying to help them
I believe that NC is a great school mainly because it has such a diversity. You can find almost every and any ethnicity and religion in the school. The teachers really do care about you oppose to other school. The students there are great and the campus is gorgeous. I was once a student at NC, but unfortunately I had to move and an no longer a Panther.
I am an alum of North Central and I loved my experience there. I wasn't the best student, but I learned a lot going there, from both students of diverse backgrounds and the unique teacher curriculum. I believe that NC has the best extracurricular opportunities in the state of Indiana. From Tennis to Spell bowl or Spanish Honor Society to Key Club. Maybe even Counterpoints (Show Choir)to even the school newspaper, softball team, speech team, science olympiad, hockey the list goes on and the school's got flair. I felt fully prepared for college curriculum and thanks to NC and the J. Everett Light Center for helping me understand both my collegiate majors, Radio/TV production and Spanish. I was able to take AP Spanish 9/10 and Radio/TV at JEL. The opportunities are endless and they all are at your fingertips at North Central High School....home of the panthers. ~Dawn Rodney, graduate of
Quality of academic programs is fantastic. Wide range of extracurricular activities and college prep classes. Though there is a huge 'be the best you can be academically and business wise'...Not a lot of 'moral' push.
I myself am a freshmand at NC and I love it. All of my teachers are great and helpfull. I am also an athelete. The athletic program is wonderful!! GO NC!!
This school is by far the best High School in the state of Indiana. You will get an excellent education at North Central. I am an alumni and I was more than prepared for college. The AP courses and honors classes were very beneficial. They also have a fabulous performing arts program including at least 10 choirs, 3 bands and 3 orchestras, Rep. Theatre and great athletics too. If you take advantage of what NC has to offer, you will not be disappointed!
I am amazed at the wide range of classes and educational opportunities available at North Central. My child is a senior and has taken AP and vocational courses. Along with the JEL, NCHS is a great school for students wishing to excel and be challenged. Praises to the staff and administrators for excellence in education.
North Central is a great school which effectively teaches a diverse student population. I have found that if the student isn't learning, it usually isn't the teacher's fault; it is the student's fault. There are plenty of outside resouces for the students to learn a subject in addition to the time outside of the classroom that each teacher makes available. If a student isn't learning, its usually because a student doesn't want to take the time and make the effort to do the work. North Central HS teachers and administrators are on track. NCHS is a great educational opportunity if the students just decide to take advantage of it.
My two boys are challenged much more than at their previous schools. I am happy with the level of performance required by the teachers at NCHS.
not a very good school! my child says teachers aren't teaching and are told to do problems their selves.
