North has a faculty that will go well beyond what it takes to help students achieve.

A great school. The teachers are caring and helpful, the extracurricular activites are well run and involve not only the students, but the families too. GO BAND!

I think that the school is great. Especially the art academy. Everyday after gym, I look forward to being able to go to art class and enjoy it. Mr. Miller rocks!

Although we are a small school within this county, we do our best to provide academically challenging course opportunities for our students.

Horrible School, if your child has to go here pull them out and home school. Your child would learn more from a pack of circus clowns. The teachers don't care about your child's education. Pass them and move on to the next batch mentality. Unless your child can throw a football, shoot hoops, or hit a baseball really well send them some where else.

Worst High School ever. Teachers don't care. Unless your kid is great at sports don't bother with this school.

As a student I don't like NBHS. The teachers dont try hard enough. They dont challenge you at all.The best thing a North is the athletics. If you compare our test scores with the other schools, ours aren't that high. no one pushes you to try your hardest. You'd think our school was more controlled because of the fact that we're so small. But we're not,

I am a parent of two at NBHS and about to be 3. I think the focus on the kids education is just not there. I had more home work and harder classes when I was in Junior high many years ago! The athletic dept. has preferential treatment to those parents who are working 9 to 5 jobs and have a 'name' in the community. Both of my children are on the honor role but yet I feel they have not been challenged at all. I think it is high time to rid the schools of politics and give every child a fair shot to succeed. I think the athletic dept. suffers from reverse discrimination. White Boys CAN jump, and run, and throw! Every child deserves a chance to be their best! Lets give it to them. Pay the teachers who care more and get rid of the ones who don't!

This school north brunswick high is the best in the county and the sports are very high. The academics are at an high standard. The jrotc department is the best and most out going unit in the state. They are the best marching unit around. The scorpion battilion has held the honor unit with destinction for eight years and counting. They have an awsome raider team. The drill, color guard, and the rifle team are one of the best around. This unit show the disipline and gives the students a chance to have an leadership and briefs them in an introduction in the army. North brunswick high school is the best school in the state of north carolina and probably many more states. Go scorpions.

This school has hard-working students, but the majority of the students are not there for education. Since I have attended this school I have been discriminated upon by both students aswell as teachers and has been mistreated and misunderstood by the staff. The school also displays strong religous beliefs that alienate myself aswell as many non-christians. School officals are unwilling to help students improve their education if it is in anyway inconvient to the staff. Also this school has the athletic teams in higher regard then the educational purposes of the school. The officals also show favoritism as far as school policies go.

this school is very small and some of the teachers try their very best to make sure that the students have a good eduacation such as MR.and Mrs. Rosenfelder,Mrs.Needham,Mr. Ruff and Coach G; those are just to name a few.

Good school overall. In my 4 years there, no violence. The Principal is very strict, not much fun. Fun, hard-working teachers. Good English Department. Small school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
