I am a graduate of North Panola High School and I can honestly say that NP is a wonderful school. Now that I am in college, I realized that I learned a lot of helpful things from NP. We are old enough to know that we shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Therefore people shouldn't comment about NP, if they didn't attend NP or if they aren't active at NP.

I graduated from NP in 1993, and it is a little different from when I was going, but it still is the school that cares. It is a wonderful school! Yes, there are negative things that everyone has stated, but there are much more positive things that no one has stated. My oldest daughter is a 9th grader there, and she has wonderful teachers that are doing a wonderful job with her. NP keep your head up, continue to do your best in everything that you do, and we will contine to be on top!

I'm currently a junior at Norht Panola High School best known as 'NP...' As others have previously stated a lot of people are going about here and they say. Most people think that NP is a bad school, but I must inform you that it's not. We have some of the brightest and most talented people who attend NP. People are always talking about the negative things at NP, but you never see or hear anyone talking about the good things that happen at NP. We'll i must inform everyone that the class of 2010, which is my class, increased in every state testing subject area in the 2007-2008 school year and I haven't heard anyone say nothing about that. Notice to the haters: 'You can say whatever you want to, but NP is one of the greatest and best school in our country today.' BY: Nemarcus

Hi, my name is Adrienne Norwood,and I agree with all of the comments that have been posted. I have been here since 2004, my freshman year, and I am currently a Senior. Of all of my 4 years here, nothing that people outside of our school have said is true. We have intelligent, smart, and TALENTED students here, including myself. I am proud of North Panola, and Class of 2008. We shouldn't feed off this negativity.

I am a somphome at north panola high school. I am writing this report to tell everyone that np is not as bad as everone says it is, we might have our down falls but to me we're still a great school. Some might not want to learn at this school but the ones who do want to they do, and i am very tried of people putting us down...... maybe if people did't put us down all the time, we, as a whole, would do the work that needs to be done and like in the other report i read south panola hiding behide they football team.

My name is Gregory Echols and I'm a Senior who attends North Panola and I'm proud to say that I'm from N.P. Our school is a great school. We may not reach the standards of other schools such as 'South Panola', 'the great South Panola' as others may call it, but to me they're in the same category as we are. We have a lot of positive things happening here. It's just not recognized as much as others. We may be failing academically but not every student. We have a lot of students who are 'top students'. So I will rate it a three cause we do have our flaws, but we're progressing. There's much more to North Panola than being a Level One school. Start recognizing the positives here and don't always feed on negativity.

In my opinion N.P. is just as good as any other school. Having said that Parents its up to us to help make sure our kids are prepared for school. Parents we have to check ourselves also, don't go to the schools with attitude, go there with expectations teachers have a hard enough time trying to teach. Once again I say our schools are just as good as any other school, they just know how to spend their performance better.
