Fantastic school! The teachers are nice, motivating, and constantly trying to help students learn. North Pitt provides students with the resources needed to further their education in college, and they help you succeed with your goals.

Although this is a disadvantaged school, there is a strong emphasis on striving for higher education and success. Having been at another high school that was too competitive, NPHS encourages students to excel in a healthy manner that does not foster anxiety.
Great school! My 2 oldest children graduated from a high school in Northern Virginia that is considered an 8, and a much higher income average per household. That was a number that was not indicative of the education received. NPHS is a much better learning environment. The class size and overall school size is great (the entire school is the size of one graduating class in the other school). Both teachers and administration are exceptional in their abilities and attitudes. My child is excelling here both personally and academically. They do not deserve the reputation and rumors about them that are within the community. It has become very apparent that others put them down in order to build themselves up. NPHS stands on their own. They were very deserving of receiving the Cool School award for Eastern North Carolina this year!!
I know when I was out there between 1998-2002, it was well balanced. I am not sure as of yet this year because it's only the first week of school and today is only his third day. I do like that he has a fun project that they have already started working on in his Honors World History class. It helps prepare him for college classes.
I loved this school when I was there in high school and my son is very excited about being there. Some of my old teachers are still there which is very encouraging. The faculty and staff have been very helpful so far with helping my son and I transition him into his freshman year this year.
I was a student.If you want your child to live up to his/her full potential please find a better school. The school is way more focused on trying to push disciplinary action then education. The best are only the best because of lack of worthy competition.
