    Overall Experience: A lot of things could probably be better if the staff would come together and ask the students what we want.

    Overall Experience: North Atlanta has great academics and everyone wants you to succeed, but lacks school pride. I wish the students had a closer bond.

    Overall Experience: The reason why I'm rating it great is because I had a great experience meeting new people. When I first started high school, I didn't have any classes with my middle school friends, so I just isolated myself from the other students. However, that didn't last long, as I began to befriend a few people, which later led to a large group of friends. There is a large diversity of people within this school, and have a massive school allowed many students from different schools join it.

    The reason why it doesn't get a perfect score is because of APS. Requiring students to take more exams then ever. Even my teachers exclaimed that it was ridiculous, back when they were in school, they didn't have these many tests. And how the changed the standard grading to a more " General Stand point", having all assignments being worth the same amount of points.
