I am an alumnus from 1981 from North. It was not always the best; but I think it is incumbent on us to make it so. It has a long term positive history and it has the potential to live up to that history. It is a fact that this change and this purpose is already there; we just need to cultivate it and it's going to grow. If you want to see some of the most exciting, innovative, effective and progressive education and people building; look to North and enroll there as it is going to be the center of attention very shortly and will continue to be so in the next coming years.
North high It's embarrassing to admit I send my kind to this place not a good environment for children who want to learn. Teachers not prepare to handle our kids; principal is more concern about her eyelashes than to my kids she is lost and completely on the wrong field. education it's not your thing girl, go back to the white elementary school you came from, to keep play principals wanna be, here we WANT! WE DESERVE! Someone with qualifications and experience to do the job
I attended this school and would like to warn all potential students to stay away. This school "attracts" the most inexperienced teachers and has a principal who is either incapable or unwilling to use any form of real discipline. You can listen to all the excuses and apologies, but at the end of the day this school is filled with a bunch of thugs, gangsters, and racist punks. Unless you are black, the other students will bully you daily. Go ahead, attend this school and see if learn even half the amount of material you would've learned anywhere else. The bottom line is that this school is unsafe and really more of a daycare center for "bebe kids."
My student currently attends the North Arts & Communications program. He is a 10th grader and is on the A honor roll. The teachers are very supportive and informative with the kids education and well being. The principal Dr. Berry is excellent. She is someone that shows that she is all about the kids. She sits in classrooms, door is always open to meet with parents and doing everything she can to get her students ready for college. My son is currently in North Carolina touring collges thanks to Dr. Berry and her staff. The neighborhood is getting better but what is going on at North is excellent. Parents at North I recommend that you get involved in your child's education and take advantage of the opportunities that the North staff is providing for them.
This school has wonderful after school programs that challenge students and it has the IB Medallion program. Each Junior or Senior are able to do PSEO. students can take classes meant for the grade ahead of them. Bullying is't a big issue and no one is discriminated against because of their race. The course work is rigorous and the class fun and easy to learn in.
