I am currently a senior at North Dallas High school. I have been in this school since my freshman year and I love it there. The thing I love about this school is that the students don't have to worry about fitting in, because there are no specific "groups" of people, everyone gets along with each other. There are plenty of opportunities for the students, they are doing everything that is in their power to lead us in the path of success. Just because some students do not have education as their priority and do things that affect the school's reputation, does not mean North Dallas High School is a bad school.
I was looking for a condo unit around Uptown and saw this school in the realtor's page. The name sounds familiar so I search a little bit. Guess what, my grandfather graduated from North Dallas! My dad and his family turned out great. Thanks to my grandad's education from this school. I will definitely check it out one of these days.
I love this school! My daughter graduated two years ago and my youngest son is a senior this year. My children went to three different high schools in Dallas ISD and only in North Dallas we found stability. The principal is such a good hearted person and puts students interest above all else. The teachers are very caring and do their best to help my children succeed. This school has changed my impression about Dallas ISD. There are great employees in the district and they are lumped in one high school, in North Dallas. Thank you Bulldogs for caring so much for my children. My daughter now attends UT Austin with a scholarship.
As a resident who lives directly across the street from North Dallas High school, I can honestly say that this has to be the worst school in all of DISD. Everyday, I see kids roaming Cole Ave and hanging out at the park - during school hrs! What's worse is the graffiti they leave behind. I see nothing but 'hood-rats' and kids headed for trouble. Shame on DISD for not making this the best school in the district. After-all, it is in the best neighborhood in Dallas!
This is my first year at North Dallas High School and my first year being a student of DISD. North Dallas is very unqualified. The teachers and administrators are HORRIBLE! I am a student and I don't think I would not recommend ND to anyone I know. This school has lack of skills the students can choose when they want to come to school, the teachers and principals have no control over the student body. The school was rated by the State Of Texas the lowest of the low. ACADEMICALLY UNNACEPTABLE! This school has one of the HIGHEST dropout rates. I am withdrawing from ND and if your reading this please don't enroll you children into this school. You will get wrongfully accused of skipping class you will have to go to court pay fines.. for nothing. this faculty is highly disrespectful. ND WORST SCHOOL IN DALLAS
This was my daughter first and last time atteding North Dallas High School. She was wrongfully accused of skipping class as well as cheating in a class. I don't even think the school has central air and central heat. As of currently, this school has been deemed academically unacceptable and students are being given the option of transfering to an academically acceptable campus for next school year. DISD has me so angry, I am looking at moving to another city just so my daughter can get the education she rightfully deserves.
I enjoy Going to ND I have transfer to many schools and I think that ND was the best so far not just because is in a Hispanic community but the teachers really do care even if some students don't the teachers tried there best to teach the students :) Ima very happy to have spend time in a school that takes care of me even if they do say its low performing but is a great school for people who want to learn
I am a graduated student from North Dallas High School.I must say that the time spent studying at North Dallas High where the greatest years of my life, teachers are perfectly trained to do their jobs and they do everything possible in their hands to make sure that their students will graduate satisfactory.
North Dallas has come a long way. Things have been rocky as they would be for urban schools with transient populations. However, NDHS has been able to sustain millions of dollars in scholarships, a Millenium Gates scholarship receipient, increasing AP scores and a dedicated and diverse population. Only students serious about their education and needing extra help should attend NDHS. The teachers WILL help!
