    Teachers: All teachers make sure to try and teach in various different ways in order to reach all students and help them all learn. Many teachers are very knowledgeable in the subjects that they teach and use current world examples in their classrooms to enhance and connect to the understanding of their students. Many use the same grading rubric for assignments so students know what to expect usually before receiving grades back.

    Extracurriculars: There are clubs that embrace cultural diversity, sexual orientation, environmental health, theatre, literature, art, comedy, T.v. shows, and service for the community. The most popular clubs are the groups who have the most organization and know how to recruit support and actively do something.

    Administration & Policies: Though many students understand the student handbook and are aware of how to behave in school, disciplinary actions usually are not necessary. However, at the same time, the rules for dress code and bullying are not held up to the standard they should be and are lacking. Furthermore, the faculty at times refrains from discipline where it could applied to certain behaviors and comments of students that are unacceptable and offensive.

    Academics: Many of the teachers at North Shore are very skilled, patient, and helpful in their teaching. The curriculum is created so that students who learn from many different ways can excel. Schedules vary from day to day to keep students learning active instead of repetitive. Although, our school appropriately prepares us for college, the workload is often more than necessary. Popular classes seem to be business and the sciences on a whole.
