I had heard good things about NP high school, and I had no qualms about enrolling my children here. After one term, however, I am pulling them out and enrolling them elsewhere. The academics are just not taught as they should be. My children have had no required reading, have not done a science project, nor written a research paper. For their futures as students, they need a stricter atmosphere. They do not participate in sports, and a lot of attention at NP seems to go in that direction.

We moved our son from Tupelo High School to North Pontotoc and it was the best decision we have ever made. North is a wonderful school where the teachers know their students and truly care about them. Although he didn't have quite the selection of classes he was still offered advanced courses. He got a great education from a school that actually knew who he was. We were involved with the baseball and soccer program and found the soccer program to be a little lacking but the baseball program was great. I would highly recommend North!

I think that North Pontotoc is a very good school. I have enjoyed my entire 11 years at North Pontotoc. I wouldn't ever ask for a better school!
