    Overall Experience: It's been a roller coaster. There is a lot that I love about this school but there is also a lot that I dislike which makes the experience an okay one for me. I say that if I had the chance to do it over, I would go to another school in pursuit of the things that lacked about this school. Also, I've been in this school since the 9th grade but in a different building for my first 2 years. I think that played apart into my experience. The new school took done adjusting to, especially since I had become so accustomed to the first building. The first building felt more like a school. There were also only 2 lunches which made the lunches longer and students got to see more people and this contributed to the better school spirit we used to have. The lunch courtyard was a big plus as well. Back then, you could see people singing and dancing outside as well as laying out on the grass which is what made school a bit more interesting. The new North Atlanta building is super spaced out and although that has it's perks, it continues to further push students away from each other. It feels less like a community than another the school it once was.

    Food: I do not recommend the pizza at school. The cheese seems fake and the bread is soggy. The sub sandwiches are always a safe alternative to everything. The school'a smoothies are amazing. They have mango and strawberry smoothies. Lunch is not long enough. After being in line, the time left to eat is literally about 5 minutes. Also, the administration very unfairly punishes all student by making them walk, after eating, from the 3rd floor where the lunch room is and to whatever floor their class is on. For me, I walk from the 3rd floor to the 11th most days. The administration says to prevent the continue of damaging school elevators, all elevators from the lunch room floor shall be locked. The horse play in the elevators is not the issue of all and to completely fix this issue, they should fix elevators to run fast so that not everyone is trying to cram onto to the first elevator that comes in fear that they will be late.

    Sports & Fitness: The school puts lots of money into it's equipment and the school is beautiful. Some of the teams that should be supported the most aren't really supported because of their lack of ability to win. The football team at North Atlanta High School isn't necessarily our most prized possession. That fact contributes to the lack of school spirit as well as the lack of pep rally's and other fun things that should be allowed by faculty but aren't because they feel that these activities distract from educational time.

    Teachers: If all staff could be on the same page with their commitment and patience for students, they would receive better ratings. The teaching styles vary greatly with each teacher to give a real rating.
