When I have kids one day, and I am living in davidson county, I will take my kid to any other school except North Davidson. Despite the great opportunities that this school will offer you, it is not worth the rude staff and stupid rules they have. I had to go to several doctors to have tests done to figure out what is physically wrong with me. I went to the front office to ask the lady to let the principal know that I need to speak with her about my days, since starting this year, after you've reached 4 days out of the 8 you can miss it's counted as "excessive absences" abd you have to fill oit a wavior form so your grades will show up on your report card or else you'll get an FF. So the lady in the front office told me she'd let her know I was there. Since then, I was up there maybe 3 other times asking the same question. And the lady was getting an attitude with me and had the audacity to ask me why I keep going up there. Prior to that, she had said the principal probabaly would not approve my days. Then the day after that, she told me she never said that to me. Why would I worry about my days if I wasn't told that? It got to the point where my teacher had to email the principal to inform her that I'd been up there several times and that the lady in the front office never informed her that I was there like she said she would. Everytime I went up there, the lady was so rude to me. Also, last year, I had pepper spray on my key chain because my dad told me to always carry it. Well, one day in class, a kid took it off my Keychain after I had told him to leave it alone, and sprayed himself purposely in the eyes to make his girlfriend feel sorry for him. Myself and the kid, got in trouble. He was suspended and I was almost suspended, although it was not my fault and listening to my dad. Instead I got 2 days of ISS and my dad was livid. Also, each year, the school rules get more and more ridiculous. I do not recommend this school to anyone at all. Very disrespectful and ridiculous.

Relocated to N Davison school district from the northeast. I was generally pleased with the school, staff, and academics. Simple and straightforward with nothing real fancy about the school, but good values and a good education can be found at N. Davidson.

This school is great... I love the teachers and the students. People here only treat you how you let yourself be treated. Basically if you respect yourself, others will respect you.

This school has extreme amounts of religious and political bias from students and teachers, if your child is openly homosexual or anything but Republican or Christian their time here will be more difficult than the next kid.

I am a student who has just recently graduated from North Davidson High. I do believe that the school has many different choices in clubs and sports, but I don't agree with some of the ratings that have been given. There are only a few teachers that care about the students and act like they want to help them and want to teach them. To me it seems that the teachers are just doing a job that they have choose. The counselors is one of the things I dislike most about the school. This school is just mainly about dedicating their time into having children take honor and AP courses and only praising those who do, which to me is saying, 'Well you have to take the higher courses because it doesn't matter what you make in the regular courses.'

I believe this is a positive school, with positive influences by the faculty, and I feel that they have the objective for the students in mind. I belive that Caroline Haynes is one great person to speak to in critical issues in confidence and is prepared as an professional in this school system.

I don't believe the staff at north really care about the students nor do they pay attention to their behavior. I think they should try to get to know and understand their students! And at least try to make a good environment for their classes so that everyone may learn. Maybe then there wouldn't be so many drop outs. I should know I dropped out because of each of these reasons.

I pulled my child from North Davidson two weeks ago. I got tired of the politics of the school, in which I found hard to agree with. I have found much comfort in the near by city school system.

I graduated from North Davidson and my daugther is a senior at North. She has been nominated for Govenor's school last year and for the Morehead scholarship this year. The teachers are definitely doing a great job!

I think North Davidson is a wonderful school and the teachers there are excellent. My daughter has been a student there for two years and loves the school and its activities. When we moved here we searched for the best school in the area and found that North and its feeder schools were absolutely the best in the county and are top ranked in the state.

Overall very good school. Some teachers need to learn to be teachers instead of instructors! All teachers need to be honest with students as well with parents.
