  • We bought a house in the North High area because that is where our children wanted to graduate from. WoW what at big mistake, i wish i could take it all back. We will be moving soon and buying another house in another district so our children will be spending their final year of high school somewhere else, along with graduation.

  • North is a very good school, my child transferred from Centennial. Dean Hanson was very prejudice not only to my child but to many others forcing many to transfer out. My child is being considered by 5 prestigious academies/colleges this is from hard work and proper guidence from North High. North does have it's problems, same problems all high schools have and in the end it is up to the child to do what is right.
