I have a algebra that gives work sheets and expects his students to know the information.I feel like I've wasted time in this class I struggle to keep my grade up in this teachers class.
As an Educator with a career of over 15 years in public education. I enjoy working at North Side high School. I have worked at larger and smaller schools. The student population is receptive to learning, most of the student are very respectful. The administration goes a very good job at this school. I look forward to teaching here for many years.
I wouldn't be a teacher here because I would be scared to get shot! Stop saying it's a great school if it's surrounded by a bad neighbor hood and the school is full with gangsters!
When I went to Northside they cut two of my classes because there was no room left. So I had 2 hours free of class every day when I could of been placed into a class to earn credits. I felt discouraged and eventualy dropped out. I know they have added classes but I know I wouldnt want my kids to attend Northside High School.
I went there from 9th to 11th grade and had a great time! There are great teachers that teach there! This is a great school!!!
I have taught at North Side for many years now and there is one thing I know for sure... the students are the best!! I show up every day to help the students learn as much as possible and excel to the highest degree. I agree with the other teacher's review concerning the lack of administration. The dress code is not enforced, the tardy policy is laughable, and the teacher morale has completely bottomed-out. So why do we all keep working there??? The students!!
I love north side.....The jrotc program is the best i suggest you take that class because you learn many things. Students dont want to be in that class because of the uniform i do feel comfortable wearing my uniform and i always feel proud of myself!
The honors kids at North Side HS are the best. I suggest you take honors if youre at North Side,otherwise its not so good.
North Side i can say is a great school. Teachers try their best to help us academically. The principal is awesome, she does not baby us i dont know what your talking about if anything alot of student, teachers and staff are real close and that's what makes North Side feel like home. I could not have picked a better school to attend. Go North Side!!!!!!!! Whoooo!!.
I think northside is a great school despite what other people say. I hear people say that northside has a lot of gang violence, i don't know what northside they're talking about but its not this one. i feel very safe here this might not be the best school around,but its also not the worst. My teachers do everything they can to help us pass and most students do improve their grades. If the student doesn't pass its their fault not the teachers. Mrs. Dean is a great primcipal she also does everything she can so that all her students pass. I love northside and i wouldn't go to any other high school. Go Steers!!!!!
Students run the school. The dress code is not enforced. The principal babies the students rather than teaching them to be responsible young adults. Grades are inflated so that the principal doesn't harass the teachers. The school is poorly run.
i think northside is the greatest school thats has ever been around...
I do not feel this school is academiclly challenging. The teachers and staff [are] working v[ery] hard but some students make the school bad, no desire to learen.
I am an alum at the magnet program at this school. The thing that most stands out is that I felt very safe and at-home at North Side. The academic level is not the highest, but the sincerity from teachers is present.
North Side is by far the best school I have attended. The teachers really care for their students and the counselors really help out the kids with problems. The principal is great and really does care about the students, experiencing that myself. Go North Side!!!!!! Go Steers!!!!!!
The hsmp program here is awesome. I am a current student and love the teachers, and the classes. It is an older school with some gang issues. But there are problems in every school. The chemistry and anatomy teacher is awesome and prepares your student for college, as well as the medical classes. This is definitely a great school if you are wanting to be in the medical field. Remember show that north side pride....Go steers.
The counselors at North Side have very little interest in their students and don't pay enough attention to them. The administrators are hard to contact and they aren't honest with parents. The teachers are very good. Except the science department.
I think North Side High School is a very good school. The administrators and the teachers really care about the students. The principal Mrs. Richardson seems determined to make the school even better. I wouldn't want my child to go anywhere else. She has already passed the TAKS test, she is making good grades and she is participating in a new after school program. She is really happy, and for a mom that's what counts.
