    "I've had two children attend Bloomington High School North and I haven't been happy with alot of the Teachers or Administrators either time. They act as if they are there to baby sit and not teach. My current child that goes there has to stay on top of the teacher just to make sure the teacher does their job and grades the paper without loosing it. I check the website often to see how my child is doing and the teachers do not keep it up to date which makes my child's grades look bad. I have tried to contact the teachers and they are not willing to work with the parent. Teacher wants to always blame the student. My child then wants to know how to make the teacher to do their job so that my child doesn't get in trouble at home over their grades. It is very frustrating. I have tried to discuss this with the conselor but they are also not willing to meet with the parent. They even screwed up my childs schedule and gave her a class that had a prerequisite that she didn't meet then blamed it on the parent/student because we were suppose to have known that (dropping the class was not allowed). I see why more students are going to home school."

    "whoever had a post November 6 post obviously is thinking about another school. I feel as if that person clearly didn't attend any honors science classes and defiantly no AP classes their whole career at north. I will agree that north lacks in teaching depth when it comes to academically low rigor courses. But with every AP course there is a more than able teacher. North is a great school for those who want to excel, for those who want to take hard classes and make a big impact in their community. But if you are not willing to take the hard classes and to put in the time it takes to really excel... i guess you will have the same review as the student below me. I'm a junior at north and it is great to be a cougar."

    "I attended North my sophomore-senior year and found the quality of education very poor. The level of difficulty for honors classes at North was what I experienced in regular classes at my old school. Regular and most honors classes at North were not sufficient to college preparation, but there is an IU release program if you ask for it. I had no teachers, administrators or counselors who were supportive or helpful in the college prep process.They seemed bothered when asked how to register for the SAT etc. There is not a serious work environment and I experienced the school as highly over-rated. I would recommenced any parent do their research on test scores etc. (compared to even much smaller area schools). During my time there students frequently got away with smocking in the building, skipping school etc. very often. I would never send my child there if I had any choice"

    "Bloomington North is a great community and a decent academic school. Its strength is in its diverse student body, which includes students from around the world. Many IU professors send their students to North, which I think affirms its academic reputation. As mentioned by others, the teachers are hit and miss. Some teachers put their all into their teaching, while others get two student teachers a year and play cards in the rec room instead of teaching. As for the administration, the dress code is a joke and discipline also a joke. If you need something to get done, there is only one administrator out of four that teachers go to for results. Overall, this school probably has some similar problems as other public schools, but I feel the atmosphere and student diversity makes it unique. Just make sure you find out which teachers are the good ones."
