    Overall Experience: 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.
