I graduated from this school and loved it. People over exaggerate on things around here. The average home around here is 175,000-300,000..... Great area just some need an attitude change.
I can't wait to graduate this jail prisoned school because,the lunch lines are too long, the teachers care only about our strict dress code and not enough about education while others do, some of the teachers can't control the class because it's so loud in the class,the bathrooms are nasty and their is toilet paper on the floors while its not flushed, the principal is nice but all of our privilages have been taken away like early dissmal if a few kids are fighting they want to give everybody punishment coming from a student parents don't bring your kid here you guys will both hate it
I'm graduating this year, and I have to say I'm extremely happy to get out of this ridiculous school. The teachers could care less if you succeed or not, the lunch lines are huuuuuge to the point where you can't get your lunch. Just awful. And the dress code. The dress code is strict, and the colors that we can wear are so hideous and boring. It also isn't even clean! Bullying is ignored by teachers. That was a major thing I had a problem about. The test averages of our school is horrendous. The teachers can't teach because they can't control the class. Awful. Coming from a student, please parents don't bring your children here. You and your child won't be happy.
I believe that the quality of this school has gone down a great deal from when it first opened. Stricter guidelines and more security is needed.
As a teacher, I find it very frustrating that many of the problems we have in class DO NOT LIVE IN THE DISTRICT. I bring this to the administration's attention with viable proof and they tell me that it is not my job to check addresses but to teach. If these are the same children who are keeping me from teaching and the other kids from learning, don't you think something should be done? Other districts check residences and don't have this problem. Why does Crowley?
I graduated from North Crowley in the class of 2009 and I believe that North Crowley is a good public school. If a student puts forth effort in making good grades and making the most out of their time at North Crowley, then they will be fine. There has been a problem recently with teacher lay-offs, meaning teachers will probably have more to deal with in the class rooms. This could cause problems as i'm sure the district knows. I also did not like the standardized dress code. It was a hassle only being able to wear one type of shirt in six mundane colors. At the end of the day, North Crowley is your typical public school... Not great, not horrible.
North Crowley is a school that has quite a lot of pros and cons. I am a student who works hard for every grade i earn, and I do so with minimal help from teachers and staff. They not only have faculty that could care less about the students welfare, but also teachers who serve as more of a distraction then any help. Extra-curricular activities, like any school, may overlap and conflict but the head-staff seldom does anything to accommodate their students and student athletes. That as a student is very discouraging and frustrating as well. There is a lot of emphasizing on dress code, which at times is understandable, but more times than not, distracting. I as a student have been withheld from core classes because my shirt was the wrong shade of green. Then I was foolish enough to believe school was for an education not fashion, now know.
North crowley is a very good school to come to academic wise and it would look really good on your college application but its not a school you would enjoy. I cant remember the last time they had any thing fun planned for the kids besides the year around talent show. Its like a prison camp. Kids are so afraid to do anything out of the routine and some seniors say that prom is even boring and thats sad all they seem to care about is if your shirt is tucked in do you have your id and are you doing what i say do. What a way to spend your 4 years of high school with nothing exciting ever happening but all you can remember is how good of grades i made and how north crowley would look on your college application thats all good but what about the fun!
This school is truly wonderful! The teachers are very insistent on making sure the students learn a lot, especially at the AP level. Test scores at the AP level are consistently high due to preparation. There are many fantastic extracurricular and competition activities available, before and after school.
My daughter gets good grades but I assure you it is not because of the school or the teachers. Most of the teachers do not care or even support the kids that really want to learn and alot of that is they have no control over the kids it is more like the kids are running the class which is really sad. We moved here from CA and my daughter was in advanced classes and Gate, but here she gets good grades but she struggles she can't get any help from her teachers and that panther thing they have after school is a joke.
I would give the school 3 stars. My child has a 4.1 but it is due to her efforts not the teachers. The academic teachers have a few teachers who don't care about teaching but the performing arts teachers put out an extraordinary effort to teaching the kids high standards. The school recently hosted a Region Choir UIL and I was disappointed and embarassed that the school Principal didn't care enough about the school's reputation to have the bathrooms cleaned up in the areas where students and judges would be located. They were disgusting and it didn't go unnoticed by our guests. Shame on you NC for not caring!
I came from a school that had high academic credintials. Unfortunatley, my parents built a new house in Crowley ISD. I had no choice but to move. I started when I was a sophomore, and a I am now a senior. I have to say, since I began attending North Crowley my GPA dropped from a 3.875 to a 2.8 in one semeseter. I have successfully brought it up, although it won't be where it use to be. All I'm saying is it's harder to learn when teachers are more concerned with dress code than teaching.
I am currently a 11th grader at NCHS from a students prospective I am not satiscfied with school, I feel like my teachers dont really support me,they arent teaching me,and some of my teachers dont care .I had a teacher last year I didnt even see till the 2nd week of school. he was there in the school he was just in the teachers class next door talking about the football team, mean while we were left to do busy work and were never tought how to do. half way through the year he still didnt know my name cause he was never there in class with his students.The only time he ever spoke to me was for dress code he was only concerened about what I wearing not if was learning.The class was failing when I asked for a new teacher I was denied by my principle.
I love nchs.- Of course we have our good days and our bad other than that it is a great school striving for excellents. I play basketball and believe they put education first gooooooo panthers!!! 08 state basketball champs
The teacher and coaches are very informative and they treat all the kids the same. They are great role models.
I used to go to NCHS. Everyone is making it seem that this school is in the ghetto or in the projects. It really isn't that bad. The reason that they are concerned with the dress code is for the safety of the students. Clearly the parents that are writing these reviews do not know anything about this school. If all the parents went to the PTSA meetings, then you will know what is going on. Also, the curriculum there is a year ahead of most of the nation's school. At my new school, I will have to take senior classes although I am a junior because of the NCHS curriculum. How is the tardiness policy ridiculous? If your child wasn't tardy all of the time and not busy socializng, then you would not have to deal with the 'ridiculous' policy! P.S. We have 2 state championships.
I was a student at North Crowley. They are very concerned with the dress code I will you give you that. But as far as many thing esle things have gotten better. After getting the new princple thing have changed. I use to be scared to go to school but after he turned it around, it was better. ya they maybe concerned about the dress code but if I feel safe I really could careless
I give this school a unsatisfactory rating. Mainly because they care more about there status and the way they look, more than the students. They also focus way too much on dress code. My child was sent to in school suspension the other day, for forgetting his i.d. at home. They took my child out of a learning envirnment because he forgot his i.d. I hope the state will do something about this soon.
First of all, the school doesn't even deserve one star. It doesn't even deserve half a star. The students hate the school and it doesn't deserve the blue ribbon award. They focus too much on dress code not on academics. I had a child sent to panther academy because her shirt went untucked without realizing it. And she missed four days of school because of bronchitis and she had to make up 11 hours before and after school because of it. The faculty focuses too much on the dress code, money, and keeping their stats a blue-ribbn status type than they do on their students and the learning. Loud, obnoxious students tend to be in favor of the teachers.
Administration goes above and beyond normal expectations for the teachers and the students. I have worked for several districts but have never found a school with such caring admin and teachers. This is by far my favorite place to teach!
