    "I was a student that studied at Naperville North from freshman to junior year and then moved to another high school of slightly higher rankings (at least by US news). From my experience, I can tell you that Naperville North is by far one of the best schools for Math and Science. The teachers there are top-notch and the students there are as well. To give an example, we often beat IMSA (Illinois MATH and Science Academy) in our Math team. Also note that some of IMSA's Math team students orginally came from Naperville North. Naperville North also offers a variety of AP and honors courses. In comparison to the other "supposedly" better high school I studied at, the AP and Honors courses at North was much much more challenging. Rigorous courses like Calc BC and MVC will prepare students well for the college courseload. For example, I received an C in Calc BC and now I am getting solid As in my math class at UIUC when the averages are around a C. Imagine what our A students are getting.. Overall, I think this school is the perfect school for honors/AP students. The guidance councilor and principal all seem nice and there is a lot of school spirit! There is also practically no bullying."

    "I switched from a sub par school in a nearby town to Naperville North and can say that my experience there changed my life for the better. The teachers were sharp, compassionate, caring, and fair. From beginning to end, they were highly involved and supportive in the areas I was strong in, steering me in the right direction. Their involvement resulted in my pursuance and success in a career I am passionate about. I was listened to, had my skills considered, and was cared about. This made all the difference."

    "I'm an AP student at NNHS and have taken all of the most rigorous courses including MVC. The academics of the school are intense; most graduates say that college classes are SIMPLE in comparison to North's APs and Honors classes. NNHS is the ONLY high school taht offers MVC for dual credit with the College of Dupage, as we take MVC first semester and then ELA second semester like an actual college. For the most part teachers are very good and put a conscious effort into teaching students. While it is true that you won't get individual help unless you ask I would imagine this is true for most schools. Students are encouraged to come in before and after school AND during study halls and lunch hours to get help, so help is always readily available. It's the student's job to get help, NOT the teacher's. Of course there are some teachers who are not up to par but this is true in all schools. Generally, teachers at North are very competent. Yes drugs, alcohol, etc happen but again, it's common everywhere. It's up to the student to be aware and responsible. The policies regarding these activities are strict and fair."

    "I am a current student. The main feel of North is that if you want to challenge yourself with 5-6 AP courses, you're free to do so, but the opposite is also true. There are good, rigorous AP courses and weighted courses here (MVC anyone?) but the majority of the normal courses are too watered down and easy. North should improve the normal course rigor instead of increasing the gap between the best courses and the normal courses. The teachers are helpful as long as you take initiative, but the other faculty members in the PPS office and Student Services Office can be particularly unhelpful and even rude at times even when asking politely for help. The extracurriculars are varied and excellent, giving many students to excel further in academic areas in science, mathematics, etc. This school is also beneficial since it offers many of the national olympiad exams which many schools don't offer (the AMC, AIME, USAMO series, USNCO, USNPO, USABO, etc). Naperville North is a good school for those that want a very high-quality education, but if you don't take initiative then I'm afraid no one will push you to challenge yourself enough."

    "As a student, I've found the school to be less then excellent. "Regular" (i.e., not AP or Enriched) classes are extremely dull and I've noticed that teachers tend to openly dislike students who know more about their subject then the rest of the class. Discipline is lax to the point where it's sometimes very hard to concentrate in class because of the people around you spending their time being obnoxious rather then studying; in some classes, teachers simply don't have control of their students. Subs openly dislike/hate the students. Teachers tend to not help you unless you're getting a C- or worse in their class, and even then you're usually given some vague advice that doesn't exactly help and thrown back to the sharks. Yes, test scores are good (somehow), but if you're looking for a hands-on school for your kids or a positive learning environment to learn in, my advice is to go elsewhere."
