The school itself, I think is very good, but, if you're an athlete (particularly baseball and football) and your parents didn't grow up in N.Attelboro, OR, you're not part of the "MUTUAL ADMIRATION SOCIETY" (town clique), then no matter how good you are (unless you're TOTALLY OUTSTANDING), then you are NOT going to get a fair shot at playing, until/unless the favored player either, quits, or gets hurt. This town has had some really good chemestry of teamates through the years and has fared pretty well, but, they could have went a LOT further in certain years if the kids that deserved to play, played, and the coaches weren't concerned with appeasing certain parents that "suck up" to them. If you attend any of the events, you'll notice who the teachers/coaches/friends and suck ups are and you'll understand. I thought I had seen it all, until one day at a game, the COACH asked a certain PLAYER if it was o.k. if he substituted for him when the game was already towards the end and "in the bag" in N.A.'s favor. I've seen many kids get "the shaft" and it's a crying shame. No sour grapes here. ust, Cold, hard facts.
This school is decent at best. There are a lot of cliques and if you aren't part of the cool clique then you're basically irrelevant. Until they want something(homework answers) from you. The office ladies are really mean and snap at you even if you're being nice to them. Some of the teachers care but most of them can't wait to leave. The athletic department focuses only on football and considering that the Athletic Director is one of the football coaches, that makes sense. If you aren't into sports and you're not popular then the only way to get through this high school experience is to make some really good friends. Otherwise you'll be miserable and sit in a dark corner in the hallway every chance you get.
Excellent school, great teachers, dedicated principal. I have 4 kids, all in the north attleboro district and they are all high honors. The school really provide lots and lots of help with college preparation, specially when parents find the time to get involved with the school, guidance and teachers every step of the process gets very simple.
Not enough focus on academic excellence. A decent education, definitely not superior. Kids with the ability to excell are, at times, forced to remain with the mean. There is a lack of guidance counselor oversight, resulting in kids missing out on college or scholarship opportunities. Parents need to be extremely involved in the college and scholarship search process (research, followup repeatedly with Guidance to see if required documents go out in time to meet deadlines) to ensure that their child goes through the college application process successfully. Without vigilance from parents, some kids will miss out on their top choice schools - especially those with early deadlines. Midyear and final grades for the colleges must be requested by each student.. nothing is sent out automatically, even though every college requires them. Do not assume anything with regards to the Guidance Office, follow up on everything yourself, repeatedly!
Despite never having enough funding, our teachers and administration do a great job educating our children.
great school,loved the teachers, and the really went the extra mile to help out with college references. Just about everyone gets into really good colleges
I'm a straight A senior whose moved around alot thanks to my dad being in the military, I had transferred out of NAHS after being enrolled there for 1 month because I couldn't get into the classes that I needed to meet MA state graduation requirements, the classes were already full, there were waiting lists to get into the classes and if extra students were added teachers would have to get paid more. The school was really tight knit and not much diversity was seen. It's mostly white, mostly preppy, most of the kids that attend have lived in the area or in North Attleboro most/their entire lives. I wouldn't recommend it for tranferring students. The teachers, administrations and staff were all really nice.
Students' tend not to fall through the cracks at this school. The teachers are top notch especially in the honors/AP levels. The seniors get into great colleges. The discipline and safety are wonderful. The students who attend this school are for the most part very involved, and respectful. There are a lot of extra-curricula activities to keep students busy. Sports are a big part of North' High School experience.
