    Overall North Central is a superb school. Students have diverse choices with regard to academics and non-academic activiities. Like most schools I think discipline needs to improve. I would suggest a dress code for all students and make it mandatory that the professional staff dress in business dress only. Casual dress sends a wrong message.

    i dont have much to say about this school. I hasd a kid go to this school. if you dont have money then you are stuck out on the other end. I know alot of athletes that didnt getthe reapect they needed. I think if one wins an accomplishment or award on the teams all of them should be regonized. i think Mr. Lowe done a real great job i will miss him alot. I know my child loved him to death and he was always there when i needed him. Thank you Mr. Lowe for everything you did for me. I hope you enjoy your new job. as for the school it could be improved by far.

    This was one of the worst school's I ever went to. Between the violence and pointless speeches by the principle and superintendent I feel that what I learned was lackluster to what I could have if they would have spent more time worrying about our future instead of how they looked to the community. They take all this money and did some of the dumbest things that they think benefit the school but did nothing for the regular student. It really is to bad I had to spend all 4 years of my high school career there.

    For students who may not be going to college I am concerned about my son being trained for work once he graduates. There seems to be very little flexibility in helping him learn but instead he is expected to learn at the same pace as the brighter students leaving him behind. They have soiclal

    The schools in this area are horrible. They are all about athletics and the students that aren't into them are left behind and feel left out.

  • (10 years ago)

    The school is great enough where the classes are small but the school could use some diversity among the student body.

  • (10 years ago)

    I thinks is school is fairly average. It has nothing more than anyother school. The atheltics are good for its class but could be better.

  • (10 years ago)

    I highly recommend this school. It is a very nice place for students to learn in a safe and professional environment.
