This is by far the worst school my child has ever attended. A total waste of tax payers money. I would warn any parent that values their child education and safety to do what ever means NOT to send your child here,even if it means moving to another district. God Bless the Principal

I am now a 8th grader and i think that North Gulfport is a good school and the teachers is good


Posted January 12, 2010

My daughter transferred to North Gulfport as a high honor roll student. Upon picking her up from her first day of school, I asked how it was. She explained that it was horrible, the teachers barely teach anything at all because they can't control the students, the students use profanity toward the teachers and other students, it's loud, and by the end of the day she hadn't learned anything. What a miserable waste of tax payer's money. Where is the accountability for schools?
