This is a first rate high school with first rate teachers where a motivated child can receive a superior education. I am a 1976 graduate and my three children each attended. I would compare the scholarships awarded per capita with any public or private high school on Long Isaland

I have 2 children attending North and my third will be attending in a few years. I feel my children are receiving a well rounded education. The school and their staff expect accountability from the children and their parents. I am greatful to the school for this. I feel the school is trying to provide the tools necessary for our children to be successful in life. My children are involved in many of the extracurricular activities and sports that are offered. The process for preparing for college starts in the eight grade. The district offers many opportunities to attend conferences regarding the college process. They are offered in the evening after work. The school provides all the information and guidance necessary to go through the college process. This wonderful school offers it all, you and your children should take advantage of it all. Thank you North HIgh School!

I currently attend North, and to be honest I could not be happier. There are wonderful teachers there and the principal is very nice. For me I think if the student wants to learn then they will, if they don't they will not. It is not the schools fault. There are alot of after school programs. The only thing I don't like about the school is that therer are alot of people that attend North that shouldn't. There need to be stronger rules and have more people cracking down on where some of the students actually live. Other then that North is a great achool and if you live in the district and are zoned for North do not hesitate to send your children here.

I like North High, however I do see a LOT of kids there that don't pay taxes here yet take advantage of the school. I think a LOT more needs to be done to have people prove that they are within the proper district. Having people prove that every few years is ridiculous. I am also not thrilled with the way they handle emergency situations. As far as Academics, I think that it's like any other school, it is what you make of it. The principal really does seem to care, although whenever I ask to speak to him it seems I get the Vice principal instead.

This school does not present the kids well on college application process, recs missing, subpar guidance. If your kid wants to stay instate SUNY system they'll get your kid in, anything else, your on your own. Zero rating from me.

The pricipal is very involved and accessible to parents questions and concerns. The teachers are very good and extra help is available. There are many extracurricular activities with devoted coaches. The music program is outstanding. One of the best in Nassau County. The PTA is outstanding with involvement in many aspects. There are sign in tables for visitors and students must have their ID available every day. I would not hesitate to send my children here. We have two enrolled.

Im a parent of 2 teens in this school and if I were you I wouldnt send my kids here. I really dont think they are that great with safety and Im trying to get my kids out of this school Most of the teachers are wonderful and some arent. if you have another choice of a high school then dont second guess that one but then again some people must learn on their own

Teaching materials are okay. As far as safety and discipline concerns, I think this school should be rated at the lowest rating.

This is a diverse school where the teachers care and the principal is very much a part of daily acticities. As always though, what the students put into their assignments is what they get out of it.
