A school on the rise to greatness. I love that you are always rewarded for your good work here, with certificates, plaques, medals, and gift cards. Even if the school hasn't had the best reputation, now it is a great school, where you will get a good education from great teachers.

Staff lacks leadership and experience.

If this school had a good leader it would soar. A good leader would increase parent involvement which would directly affect all other aspects of the school.

I enjoyed my time at this school. I had heard stories while in middle school that were negative. I have never had a bad experience while attending. The cool thing about North is that you are also really close to the Career Education Center (I am also an Alumni).
