    Overall Experience: Teachers are so friendly, caring, and want you to succeed. A lot of work but I learned a ton and am more than prepared for college and the work world. I love that you can do anything and everything from being the lead in the school play to playing football to leading clubs.

    Overall Experience: I love this school to death, honestly. North Shore's combination of incredibly rigorous academics and a laid back student body is unparalleled by many institutions. At North Shore, you can be that kid who is an amazing athlete and a big participant in the party scene, but also leader of the math club and a National Merit Scholar. Truly, you can bridge the world of jocks and of nerds here - neither really exist, as by virtue of being at North Shore, you are a nerd.
