Although North Augusta is a relatively small town, its high school is both large and extrememly diverse. Whether it be amongst the teaching staff or the students themselves, North Augusta High School is a combined mixture of outstanding academics, impressive athletics and school spirit that can never be beaten. Some of my favorite experiences are those in which the students simply come together for different events, uniting as a community and showing those around us the importance of teamwork. If given the change to choose another school, I would do absolutely nothing differently. The lessons learned and the experiences I was given are irreplacable.

North Augusta high school has been a good experience for our daughter. As far as teachers go, my daughter has experienced a few teachers that were not very good as far as teaching the subject. They would read from the screen but not explain. Other teachers have been very good and supportive. There has been one who just doesn't car because it was their final year before retirement. The atmosphere among students has been very positive.

I have been going to this school for my entire high school experience and it has truly opened my eyes to the big world I'm about to head into. I like the way the school is set up, position wise. Classes are easy to find and get to. One thing that could change is their system. The way the school does things is very confusing to a student. The school changes rules all the time or administrators say one thing while the rule book says another. It would be nice to have one straight list of rules and to have them kept the same all of the time.
