The students that are posting bad things about the school are probably the ones who are always getting into trouble. As a former student of this high school I know it is a great school. North Carolina excels in education. Living in a different state now, and seeing how their grade school education is makes me appreciate the education that I got at NSHS because the students here are not getting a good education. They are being taught things in High School that I was taught in 5-7th grades. So students, appreciate school while you can. You will miss it when you are out. Also enjoy the fact that you are not having to pay for it either. When you get out and go to college it will be completely different. Perhaps it is you who needs to make the change. Just because you can't get your way doesn't mean it is a bad school and that the teachers are pushovers. It means they are teaching you discipline and responsibility to help you in the real world outside of high school that you will need for the rest of your lives. GO GREYHOUNDS!!!!!!

this school doesn't care about the students, the principal and teachers all they care about is getting the students through school without having them to dropout, yall see they get graded as well that's all they care about. these people will do things behind your back, and then you will find out later.

I try my best to be objective and base opinion on facts versus feelings. I have NEVER felt that either the old or new principal at North Surry intend to be dictators. At the end of the day they are responsible for MANY students and have to consider the good of the whole student body versus my child alone. My child participates in activities both academically and athletically outside of North Surry and has performed well in comparison to his peers, so I have to believe that NSHS is preparing him appropriately. To anyone who has a concern about NSHS, I suggest that you reach out to the staff and considerately approach them looking at your concern "big picture" and if they do not respond in a considerate way that you then post the details of course leaving out student names. I personally know how hard it is to leave out emotion when it involves our kids but I do believe that if we treat the administrators as we want to be treated then we will in turn see more consideration from them. Respectfully...

I feel this is and excellent school. All the teachers really work with the kids to try an help them understand their classes. Parent involevement is strong also. The principal and teachers are caring and strong leaders. The test scores of the students are great as well.

I personaly dont like the school. The school puts on a front for parents so they think its a great school. There is nothing special about it. Some of the teachers are ok, but i can see right through most of them and the principal leadership is completley screwed up. If your child does something they dont like and they cant get them in trouble for it, they'l make up an excuse and send that home to you, the parent. Naturally, you may believe the principal over your child because your not there to supervise and they know this so they use it to their advantage. Its their way of 'getting back' at the students. If you dont believe me, ask any of the student body or anyone that used to go there. The next time your child gets in trouble, i recommend you investigate. I am a student, i know.

North Surry is just the type of school you look forward to actually going to.The people are nice,the cafeteria food is great,what else could someone possibly ask for from their school? North Surry might not be the fanciest school around,but it's like a second to home to a lot of us.I do believe that North Surry deserves to win,it would help a lot.

I recently moved to this area and have been impressed with the educational opportunities students are receiving at NSHS. The halls are quiet, and the teachers are busy leading students in varied meaningful instruction. We are developing a community of pride at NSHS. Our pride is beginning to show in our test scores and in student morale.

This school is horrible no argument, if you've been going to surry county schools all your life you may believe its a good school. But if you've gone to another school some point in time you will learn that North Surry High is close to being as bad as it gets. The people are ignorant and the teachers are pushovers.
