The building needs to be replaced, but it is a great school academically, with strong teachers. However, as with most districts, common core is taking a real toll on the students.

This schools pretty good. It's good to know that our tax dollars are hard at work. The teachers try hard to help their students (excluding some). The school facility is alright, it's pretty old and needs to be improved and it's nice to know they're taking action. The school also offers a lot of honors classes that aren't offered at other schools. Their electives are also very fun, informative and creative!

I am in agreement with those that say this is a good school if your kid is exceptional or ESL. If you are an average student with potential you can easily be forgottenm especially if you are not like most of the parents constantly calling the teacher about their child.

This school puts way too much stress and pressure on the students. it has good academics but they never care about how happy the students are. with the amount of hw, projects, and essays i have, i never get a break.

This is a good school if your kid is exceptional or ESL. Most students in the middle are left behind. If a student here cannot get in the right click via the chosen religion or athletics then he/she will probably have a difficult time here.

North provides many learning opportunities for the bright, motivated student. Most of the teachers teaching advanced courework are dedicated and will work with the student tomake sure the student is working to his/her potential. However, some of the teachers that teach the 'regular' classes do not provide enough support and giudance to the 'average' student, the one that needs the support the most. No worries if you kid is in all Honors;however, keep the 'regular' teachers in line by letting them know you are watching their performance as well as your child's.

Having my daughter attend North High was not one of my better judgements. That school needs a lot of work and instead of fixing the football field they should first fix the inside.

Going to north high school made it possible for me to get into a good college of my choice, they helped me get the best education better then most private schools, and I played 3 varsity sports, I recommend north to any one who is looking to move to rockland county because it is among the best of the best, some of the nicest people and smartest students attend north, we have the test scores to prove it and not to mention in 2006 when I graduated, 99% of students went off to college. and every single student graduated out of my 499 person class

Clarkstown North students have unbelievable opportunities and advantages. I suppose that isn't unusal for a wealthy town. School work is HIGHLY stressed and VERY competitive. Seniors go on to great schools like Cornell and Princeton. The only real problem is that 'average' students (which do seem to be in the 'minority') seem to be herded and can get 'lost' because a lot of attention is placed to the AP students. Classrooms have computers and plasma TVs. This is probably one of the best public high schools in New York State.

Escellent and challenging, a greater emphasis on average students would help strengthen their program.

I have had a great experience in this school for the past two years. Academically my child is being challenged and is doing well. The music, arts and sports programs are great and very accessible to all students. Our PTA is one of the best and they really focus on the kids and their needs.

This is a great school district with many available AP programs and honors courses. The rigor of the coursework really puts the child at work and prepares him or her well for college and the road ahead. CHSN also has a wonderful arts and music programs, and the sports are okay. Some parents are very involved helping with fundraisers and etc.

North is a great school, but that is to be expected from a town which is wealthy. Parent involvent is pretty low for things outside of getting their kid in the best colleges (almost all go on to wonderful schools)..The classrooms are outfitted with plasma screen tvs and computers. Teachers are good.

This is the school I went to as a teenager and have fond memories of both the social experience and the academics. Excellent quality of teachers.

The school excels in academics. The administration especially the Special Ed administration does not seem to care about the individual student. School spirit is very low.

My three children graduated from North High School. It is a very fine school Academically with graduating Seniors going to schools like Cornell, Emory, SUNY Binghamton and Wisconsin; however, there should be more of a focus on other things. There is very little school spirit, and that is largely the result of an intensly academically focused environment, and not enough school based fun activities that would drive kids interests. Although the ice hockey and baseball teams have excelled the other sports are hampered by bad coaching and an uncaring apathetic student body. Still, if its a good education that one is seeking, the school is noted for its staff, AP achievement results and a high caliber student body.

Special Education: IEP's are generated with a program called IEP direct. This is done for all Rockland County schools. The goals and objectives are not individualized, they are done from a database. Goals and objectives written on student's on an IEP are not measureable. There is no baseline, where is the child presently performing. It basically states '70 % mastery', but it doesn't state where the student currently is performing. At the high school level there is no remediation what so ever if a student is not reading near or close to what grade level they are in. Self contained class text books given to the high school students are at low elementary grade reading level. Parents must read and understand their child's IEP. Understand assessment tests given by the school, this is on your student's IEP. Understand your child's IEP, if you don't, you must look for help now before its too late, before your child graduates from High School. Get involved and investigate exactly what your child is doing in these classes.
