North Royalton HS is a decent school with a rivalry of Brecksville-Broadview Heights HS (the place with a decent football team and some money). The hallways are extremely crowded in NRHS, and the office administration decided to stop students from cutting through our huge library as a transportation

The teachers are decent, although many don't really care except for their paycheck - fair enough, it's a public high school. We got a new principal starting off 2012-2013, but not much has changed. The one thing at NRHS that actually stands out is the band, which has had a 'Superior' rating for years, as they make fifth through eighth grades go through it a band class at the middle school. During 2012, when Hurricane Sandy came along, our roof started falling down - literally. With no money in the budget and our levy failing, we now have ceiling panels missing. This school sends some of its students to the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center, an outstanding technical school for those who wish to apply to it. Read less

I have had a great experience with the North Royalton high school. My daughter just recently graduated and finds that some of her college classes are actually easier than that of high school. Great faculty! We do need an updated building, though.

I think that north royalton high is a terrible school. It is very overcrowded and there is no level of security, not even any student hall monitors. It disturbs me that anyone could just walk right in. Another aspect of this school that bothers me is the student vocational prep program that they run.
... Read more In eigth grade before entering high school, teachers and counelors single out low income students and troublemakers and convince them to enter a program where the kids do janitorial services and such and they earn a few dollars a week. This program is supposed to be for AT RISK students but it only discourages them and sets them up for a low income and low quailty future. And convieniently the standarized test scores for these students do not contribute to the average. This is a poorly operated school that doesn't deserve to be posted on this site. Read less

North Royalton to me as a parent is a Fake World. It seems that kids have learned nothing. Yes there is teaching going on but I truly do not see how they teach our kids with respect, when they ask for respect back. The school system has shown me that it's all about looks. You don't talk about the struggles,

I really think poorly of North Royalton's school system and I wish that you would not try to look like your the best and act like it when it's really not. But I wish people could see that and know that this is an amazing school instead of a big act having to be put on. Good luck to those kids. Read less
