this is and excellent school i am about to graduate and i would just like to thank freddy cornett and larry welch two of the few good teachers and north laurel high school
I am about to graduate from North and I think that it is a very fine school with teachers who are willing to help you to succeed!
The great majority of teachers in this school lack the will to help students who genuinely want to succeed.
I have had 2 children to graduate from NLHS and one who is attending now. I have been very pleased with the education that each of my children have received while attending North. I would rate several of the teachers among the best in the state. Roger and Sue Wright, Lynn White, Tami Herrell, Bridget Napier and Susie McCowan just to name a few. I have gone through 3 administrators while my children have been there and I have been pleased with all of their leadership qualities.
I am attended North for four years, I thought it was a very good school. The teachers were really great for the most part. The activities and sports were great. Everyone was very helpful.
Just a note, I have a child who has attended both South High and North High. Comparing the two, I think North High has better class choices and the 6 classes instead of 4 blocks is a better way of teaching. They have more classes to help with career choices as well as DRIVERS ED. Rachel G. who is a counselor is awesome, Sharon Y. is awesome as well. I am sure alot of other people there are as well, I have only dealt with those two and the office staff whom are great to deal with as well. Secondly, the traffic situation at North is absolutely the smoothest traffic flow I have ever seen. South High traffic is dangerous and NO ONE, including the parents give turn signals, everyone just zooms in and out and someone will be killed or badly hurt if something isn't done with this situation.
We are absolutely disgusted with the way that the staff at NLHS has treated our daughter this past year. As parents were snubbed and spoken to with condescending tones whenever we dealt with the administration. I am looking into every option out there so that my child will not have to be subjected to another year at this miserable institution!
The NJROTC program here is excellent. I am a third year cadet and I am about to be a fourth year cadet. Without this school, I couldn't have had an oportunity to be in this program. North Laurel High School is a great place to learn.
North Laurel High School is a great school for anyone to go to. The administration is so caring and giving. Like Micah said, they'll do anything to help us. The subject matter that is taught is wonderful. The teachers definitely help to prepare you for future education. If you're ever having trouble in a class, they'll do everything they can to help. We have great sport teams. Plus, although our school is strict, they still allow us to have fun. Personally, I love North and couldnt imagine ever going to another school.
I am the parent of a former NLHS student. My daughter was ranked number one in her class two years ago. Beth S, my daughter is now attending an ivoy league school and is receiving all As. This is possible because she received such an academic backing at NLHS. South is not any better than north. If your student is willing to study and go the distance the school will not matter. -Mrs. Scoville
I am a parent who relocated 3 years ago to London. I did some investigating myself on both high schools in the area (North and South Laurel). I heard the same thing from everyone I talked to. The better students attend South Laurel High. This has proven to be fact in their state-wide test scores. I chose to send my child to South and you should do the same!
This is a great school.It's a regular school.The teachers are great they do all they can to help us with anything we need.The principle and the rest of the staff, helps us with problems that occur outside of the school when we ask for it.Our curriculum covers everything a student needs to be successful in the real world.Parents care about what happens in our school.Students act responseibly and try to make our school its best.Anyone who moves or is looking for a new school.I suggest this school to you.
