Teachers at North Farmington have different styles of teaching. My favorite teacher, Mr. Bause makes learning fun! Mr. Bause incorporates many fun ways to remember steps in equations that can be very difficult for students to remember. I can tell Mr. Bause cares about his students because he is always willing to assist, especially the students that experience difficulties understanding the various concepts that he teaches. I really feel that if more teachers shared the same passion in their teaching style as Mr. Bause, students would share his passion in their education and North Farmington would have a better teachers as a whole.

I am an extremely involved senior at North Farmington and it would be difficult for me to say anything negative about the school as a whole... okay maybe the facilities and appearance are a bit unattractive. But, my education has been exceptional, fostered by engaging teachers, coaches, advisors, and administration. There are ample opportunities for students to get involved and feel the Raider spirit in their own learning or social communities. Our LINK Crew helps freshmen become accustomed to life in high school and students have the opportunity to excel thereafter. I have had a great experience at North and would highly recommend this high school experience to everyone in the Farmington Hills area.

At North, the environment was very diverse and positive. The students were very school spirited. Administration made bonds with as many students as possible and made sure the environment felt safe and comfortable. Everyone was treated equally. The staff is amazing, they really do put in effort to help you. Their focus is that you learn, they do this by offering help before and after classes. North offers many AP courses that really help prepare you for college.The only thing that isn't really up to par at North is the food.
