Did not feel like my daughter was getting the attention she requires for learning. Poor relationship with faculty and lack of communication.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 16, 2010

We were unhappy with the communication between staff and parents and how some activities were handled. They have good teachers but limited resources for them.
—Submitted by a parent

My daughter graduated from North Platte in 2002. We moved here before Kindergarten so that she would have a good education. It worked! She started college at 16 and has excelled in every aspect imaginable.

Posted May 12, 2004

I graduated here six years ago and I believe I received a wonderful education that prepared me for life and for college. The opportunities available are that of a larger school, but the classrooms are those of a small school. Students learn better in small schools.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
