    "The teachers at our school are overall pretty good, I just sometimes wish that they would provide the honors classes with more challenging work. I as well as others just breeze through our lessons and don't have to try hard to get a good grade. i like to be challenged with what I do, so I would want more challenging assignments. As well as this, some of our teachers have begun to not focus, which in turn makes it seem like it is okay for us, the students, to not focus. I want the teachers to put in as much work and effort to the class as what they expect us to do."

    "The parents of the school are absolutely great. they are all so supportive of not only their own children, but of of other kids too. It's really great to know that it's like were a big team, with everyone working together and supporting each other. This is true with athletics and academics both. The students are very hardworking, because of their parents pushing them to be the best, and I think that's rare in today's society. I am extremely blessed to be a part of the parent and student family at North Star High School."

    "Not really much to say. It's a pretty average school. Not the best teachers, not the best extracurricular activities, not the best lunches. There's a lot of room for improvement at this school. I probably wouldn't send my child to this school."

    "It's about 50/50. Half the teachers are fun and you actually learn what you should be learning in their classes and the other half are either lazy and don't really teach enough or are too strict and give too much work to their students, making them not want to work at all."

    "Teachers at North Star High School are all very knowledgeable individuals. Only very few go above and beyond to teach to their full ability though. This is something I dislike about the teachers. They all have the ability to teach very well but most of the time just make us do reviews and take tests without learning the lessons. They're always there to help and are very friendly, they lack teaching."
