Great school with great teachers. I would send my child there. AP and advanced courses are offered. Highly recommended for all level of students.

okay i am a current student going to north harford so you all should clearly listen to my advice. This school rocks. The teachers ARE awesome, friendly, and respectful. I take all honors classes and four AP's. I am an a student, and i do find it challenging. It is the perfect school because there are no gangs, barely any fights, and various groups of people to get along with. Do not listen to the parents on here of whiny brats. There is no other high school in Harford County that i would rather spend four years of my life at.

My son just graduated from here and I would have to say that this school is awesome because of the faculty. The staff really truly cares about your child succeeding in school.

this school is fantastic. new ap programs and honors classes will help your child excel. some of the most friendly people you woll ever meet go to this school. the choral program is one of the best in maryland. the 2007-20088 chorus is even going to china on may 24 to sing at the opening cerimonies.

Horrible...if you're an above average student, you are going to suffer. The teachers don't care. There is little respect between faculty and students. Most of the 'higher level' classes are no more difficult than a regular class. In my opinion, you'd have to try really hard to get poor grades at this school. However, even stellar grades in many classes at North Harford mean little.

NHHS does not meet the academic standards to challenge above average students. Very few of the teachers are high achievers. Most are only average. Some are not even competent. There enough advanced students to warrant high level classes, and in theory they do exist. In reality they are not up to the level they could be with highly qualified teachers. Most teachers treat students like cattle. Very few of them show respect for the students, and in return are well liked and respected by the students. These few teachers are also the ones from whom the students actually learn their material. From the rest, the students get only the most rudimentary lessons. The students in general are quite good. There is a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds (not considering lack of racial diversity). They all get along well together in most cases. It has improved in the 25 years since I graduated.

N. Harford is where I graduated and out of all the schools I've been to, I find that this was the best. There is a great amount of student teache communications. I find that all the teachers could help me with anything that I needed regardless of the subject they taught.
