    This school is great ! I am a senior at Pick. North and have grown greatly over my years here. My school offers so many opportunities - for me - it was football. I have received multiple scholarships for my athletic achievements.

    Wonderful school if you have blonde hair and blues. My child was not permitted in the band year book picture because she colored her hair red. The teacher cited a rule that students must have natural hair color but he permitted the students with bleach bonde hair (not natural) students with hair dyed black and even one with green underneath to appear in photo. Wonderful school if you look and think like everyone else.

    The high school is a great school. My boys have grown so much over the past four years here. Very disappointed in the turn out on the parents side as to not showing up for conferences. But the teachers do an awesome job in helping the students succeed.

    Our family loves this school!! It is beautiful has wonderful caring teachers that help the students reach their potential and tremendous selection of coursework that will help anyone go to college of choice. Most importantly respect is given to and expected from all students. High standards with reasonable but challenging expectations for everyone!!

    Wonderful system. North has terrific teachers that assume the best of their students. They teach more in less time and go into more depth than many college classes. These students graduate with an education that grants them entrance to ANY school they might want to attend. It's never IF they want to go on to better things it's simply WHAT do they want to do? They can do it all - thanks to Pickerington North!

    As a parent of 2 graduates and a sophomore at PHSN the entire school district is number one in my book. I have seen this community grow from a small town to a comfortable suburb east of Columbus OH. The entire district is filled with wonder staff that care develop and challenge all students to be successful learners (both in and outside the classroom). Parental and Community support is strong. Our family transfered from Pickerington to a southern state for two years. We returned to the same neighborhood school. We love the school district so much that we promised our youngest (15yr old) we would not move until he graduated from PHSN. The motto of the Class of 2008 was ' 08' - No Hate! '. They lived up to that standard 24/7.

    I was in the first graduating class of Pickerington North and I can't say enough about this school. The staff has taken deliberate steps from the very first day to create a unique community where each student is proud to be a Panther!
