My child transferred in to NKHS mid-year. THis could have been a disaster any where else but the team at NK made sure he found his place. Class choices were excellent and opportunities to get involved are abundant.

My child has attend NKHS for the past 2 years and we have been looking for a new school mid way through the first year. There are some wonderful, dedicated teachers here but the behavior of the students toward each other and toward the teachers is atrocious. Overall, the students create a hostile learning environment by constantly disrupting classes, picking on one another, using vulgar and insulting language when addressing teachers, and spreading vicious rumors about anyone they don't like. I have never encountered kids who are so disrespectful, intolerant, close-minded, ill-mannered, unwelcoming and down right mean. Bullying in all forms is rampant; the school is so big and over crowded that the administration has been ineffective in bringing it under control. Newcomers beware, you will not be greeted with open arms. This is not a welcoming place, you will face being excluded to the point of being ostracized, hated, and have a very difficult time making friends. Your child will get an education here but the cost to their overall well being is too high.

I am very concerned. I haven't checked this site in years. But it seems the school's in Poulsbo are declining! I moved our family here all the way from Arizona. We did extensive research about the quality of schools in Poulsbo. And at the time that rating was pretty good. I am worried now that my children are almost done with elementary that they are going to be entering into a less than satisfactory middle school and high school. Is this the case? Many of the reviews here are outdated. Can anyone offer up some current information please? I am rating the school "average" because I have to rate something and I honestly have no idea how it is. I figure an "average" rating won't hurt or help undeserved.

It has a highly-trained staff, an excellent AP program, and a reform-minded principal.

North Kitsap lacks honors curriculum and true preparation for college.

I have attended North Kitsap Schools sence i was in kindergarden. I am just now entering North Kitsap High School as a freshmen , and i love it so far. My older sister was in the North Kitsap School district scence she was in kindergarden and she graduated in 2005 she is now attending Portland State University. From what I have read people on this website think that the school district is not acceptable, but I disagree. I just wanted to let everyone know that I think that this is a great place to send your children to learn . All of my family agrees that this is a wonderful place for school.

I had to transfer to a new school. The teachers seemed to not care if I learned anything or not. I still live in the area, but plan on sending my kids to a different school.


Posted May 28, 2008

My kids attended North Kitsap schools. The schools were nice, but the teachers need some help themselves as they don't know how to help struggling students. So glad my kids no longer attend NOrth Kitsap schools.

Quality of school administration has increased tremendously in the past twelve months. As a result, teaching quality has increased as well. We are still working on academics and achievement, overall, but progress is being made, and the 'new' North (post split with Kingston High School) will be a better educational institution as a result of those changes. Additional parent support is strongly encouraged during this transition time. Opportunities to participate through PTA and various Boosters organizations (Band, Sports and Drama) are available and should be utilized.

There has been incredible improvement in quality of teaching, leadership of the school and in student safety and morale. With the new principal, it's like a new school. The school will be split next year as Kingston High School opens. Kids who are staying at NKHS are excited. Kids who are going to KHS are excited. Both will be excellent high schools.

NKHS is a beautiful campus, a dated and crowded interior, but it's undergoing a major renovation starting in Nov.. 2007, which will make a big improvement. Staff is great, by and large, and admin are pro-active and competent. Student behavior has shown improvement in the past couple years, with higher standards of public behavior more consistently enforced. Evidence of this is that, several years ago, all assemblies were cancelled because of bad behavior, but they were reinstated two years ago and held with good results, after the principal trained the students by explicitely stating expectations in a businesslike way, and having a 'show of force' with security and staff on hand to make it happen. Students generally get good-quality education. WASL prep courses have been added, and events like a Student Appreciation Breakfast show the caring of the staff. Good school!

My daughter is a Junior this year and we have been happy with her progress for the most part, however I have noticed this year that organization is poor on the part of the staff. We had to hunt down information about pics, ASB cards, and forms for changing emergency contact info, which is to be done yearly. More advanced info so that parents CAN be involved would be beneficial. I subscribe to email alerts and yet that has not been helpful in these areas. My daughter is having to spend her time between classes running around gathering info that should have been sent to parents in the first place. Otherwise this is a school I am happy to have my daughter in and send my sons to in the future.

I feel as though that the teachers do not put forth the amount of effort that they are paid for. Another thing is that the school always hires teachers last minute. Also with the new kingston high school being constructed the students are not give the representation they want as to which school they are going to. Many of the seniors do not want to change school for their last year of high school. Also the school is over crowded and with the new construction the school will be even worse. In my opinion and advise i strongly recomend for parents to move their child to the central kitsap school district becuase of the lack of quality teachers in North Kitsap High School.

Academic programs are excellent, including five foreign languages and many AP level classes. Extracurriculars and fine arts are in good supply as well. We could probably use more parent involvement.

This school has been operating under (previous) poor leadership and an outdated model for WAY too long. Change is very diificult, BUT more focused energy on the part of parents, community, students and staff needs to be spent now to bring this school into today's world.

The students have no representation in anything at this school. NKHS has a 4 period day, classes are 85 minutes long, and we have 10 min. passing periods. Every student I have talked to is completely content with this schedule. As of late, the teachers and adminstrators have been meeting to decide a schedule change for next year; they want to have a 6-7 period day. I feel this is outrageous! Especially because the students have not even been informed about these events, or the discussions that take place in them. A 6-7 period day means classes will get cut from the curriculum, and the students will have more homework with less time in class to work on it. As a student, I feel we should have a say in this schedule change, because afterall, WE are the ones who attend this school, and it is OUR future YOU shape.

When my son was in middle school, he had a teacher that said, 'You're going to have some teachers who love teaching, you're going to have some who don't. You're going to have some teachers who love you, and more likely, some who don't. It's up to you to get what you can out of your education. You still have to learn and get the grade that gets you where you want to go.' I think that says it very well. My son transferred into NK from the midwest in the middle of his sophomore year. I think too many parents don't understand the balance between being 'involved' and being informed. Perhaps too many parents today aren't teaching their kids how to make decisions My son found and connected with teachers and coaches. Could the school use improving? Probably. And it's a two way street. KJLange Pouslbo

I don't feel this school keeps parents involved nor let the parents know what they can do if there child is needing extra help in there class. There isn't a good staff and student relationship in-particular the counselor to student relationship. I know my child has had problems and it's very hard for her to talk to anyone.

North Kitsap represents students being formed into a mold of sub-standard education. Rarely would you find a teacher that actually cares about you- the student. This school does not allow proper bonds to be built by staff and students. There is never time to talk to teachers one-on-one, personal time. Students have almost no rights at North, and their lack of ability to express themselves and really let their minds explore- is what makes this school such a horrific school. Students are suppressed at this school- which can lead to many wrong roads in a students life. This school should focus on the students, and the enrichment of education- not how much money they can spend on the football team for new pads. North Kitsap High School is not a place where a student can go to every day and feel safe, and not be persecuted.

The different student groups are identified by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
