Honestly North High is a horrible school. It seems like not even the teachers take things seriously now days! It's very hard to concentrate in the noisy classes, and the security is very low. It seems like the school loves to make up rules as they go on and they don't really listen to the students needs. ...  Read more

This is a horrible school! They make up their own rules as they go and the 'favored children' are untouched.

North High School is an excellent school where students can receive a first-rate education. North High's administration is also outstanding as well as very 'parent friendly'. I love North High School!

Administration needs to be more open to input from parents. Also, it would be most helpful if they would promptly and thoroughly investigate complaints. More security would help things as well. It is ridiculous to assume that five security guards can effectively secure a school of over 2,000 students. ...  Read more

I currently have a child at North High and I have been very pleased with the education she has received. She is taking advantage of numerous AP classes, and her teachers have been very accessible (primarily through e-mail). The leadership is strong and the administrators are helpful and care about ...  Read more

This school does not follow a students progress through out high school, thus causing students that have difficulties to fall through the cracks and not be able to graduate on time. They also fail to mention possible learning disabilities (dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, etc.) Which goes undiagnosed until the child ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
