14 Parent Reviews for North High School

North High School is horrible. Some of the teachers are dedicated, however, that is detracted by the behavioral problems at the school. It is hard for an average student to achieve ANY education there. Yes, the NJROTC is a great program along with AP and honors classes. However, for the typical student, ...  Read more

I disagree with the negative comments alot of the student success has to do with what the student wants to accomplish. I have two daughters in ROTC in North High and it's what has kept me from relocating back to florida. I think it is a very good school. It is true that the middle school nearby like ...  Read more

As a sophmore presently at North I love being there. Even though the building is crumbling we all see to have that sense of unity that makes a big Polar Bear family. I'm glad I decided to go North for its classes that they offer as well as the JROTC program that they have running. JROTC is a great program ...  Read more
