North Meck is the best school! Mr.Hayes is a fun nice principal but is on his stuff, he doesn't play. I love that he has brought back the Cosmetology Program and these other programs such as Culinary, Automative Tech, Horticulture, and Construction. The school is building big time.

I normally do not post on these sites. However, since my son's schools has been taken over by the new principal things have gotten so bad. Discipline is not an issue and never was. The man is nothing but about testing, testing and more testing. Students are taught nothing at this school. During an open house the situation was chaotic to say the least, the school has one asst. principal and very young and inexperienced group of people called academic facilitators and for the life of me I cannot figure out who to talk to about my sons issues at this school. I was told by friends about how good this school was, but even they are backing away from it. Poor North Meck, I feel sorry for both studens and staff.

This school has gone from one of the best to one of the worst in less than three months. The long time Principal was forced out by the powers that be and was replaced by several other temporary Principals that were removed. The newest Principal comes from a school of less than 400 students will little experience running a large high school. The student population has gone from first to worst. Parents, my student currently attends this school and the morale of both the staff and high achieving students has gone out the window. Avoid North Mecklenburg high and attend Hough High if at possible.

Norfff. We have the besgt school spirt around. The classes are great considering, there are different levels offered so youll always be able to pass. Some of the counselors are a little diffucult by theres people that really do want to help you out and are willing to make sure you dont 'get left behind' I love it, and the people there.

My son is a freshman at North Meck in the IB program. I am happy to say that after spending money on a private school, this school has far exceeding my expectations. The teachers and administrators are some of the finest that I have ever seen. They have gone above and beyond to help my child succeed; staying after school, counseling, offering advice, you name it. The overcrowding issue is what it is, but does not take away from what this school has to offer. I am looking forward to the next three years at North Meck!

North Mecklenburg is second to none. My son is now a junior in the IB program and has developed into a mature adolescent because of it. He has learned how to control time and his teachers stay afterschool to tutor him. The 'overcrowding' issue is not as bad as it sounds. The school has scheduled themselves so that overcrowding is as small as possible. Send your child to North Meck!!! GO Vikings!

This school is one of the best in CMS. We have many classes to chose from and all different levels....from AP, IB, honors, and regular. We have the best School spirit in CMS and a majority of us love going there. The teachers and principal are always on hand for questions or meetings.

Principal is involved with parents/students. It has many available AP and Honors courses. Teacher quality for the most part is good. Counselors are not useful or well informed. Overall I am pleased with discipline. The school lets the students have some freedom and recognizes that adolescents will make mistakes and it will not be the end of the world. Wish the principal had more leeway to enforce his own discipline policies instead of enforcing rigid school board policies.

I attended North Meck as a freshman through the school year 2003-2004 and found it decent. My classes were overcrouded, and I hated walking the 200+ yards out to the trailers. However, my teachers were friendly and I got on honor roll which satisfied me. In contrast, the last 3 years of high school at a private school have taught me a lot. Not academically, but environmentally. My graduating class of 96 allows a relaxed and personal school day. With classes of a maximum 20 students, we get the one-on-one attention we need. It has certainly helped raise my interest for school. Looking back, I realize that North Meck could not satisfy all of my needs. The school was a complete disaster and I am astounded that such a place is

I was a student at North Meck. Class of '05. I'm not going to say that this school is the greatest school or the worst. It deffinately needed improvement when I was there. But I did enjoy being there. I went to another high school for my first 2 years and to North my last 2. It was deffinately overcrowded and the layout of the school made it even worst. The one thing I never understood is why did they remodel the football field when it was just fine but could remodel the bus parking lot which was horrible. It is way to small for any amount of students whether overcrowded or not. The teachers were the best that I have ever had and they helped me more than they had to. North was deffinately a great school to be graduate from.

My son recently started at North Meck as a freshman and it has been a great experience so far. He attended a very small, rather sheltered middle school so I was a bit unsure about his transition, but it has been very smooth. He has been appropriately challenged in the IB program and is enjoying the school spirit and extracurricular offerings. So far so good!

Probaly one of the best schools in the state. Yes it tends to be overcrowded and a little old but the faculty are second to none in the more advanced classes. I spent four years there, and am now at UNC.

I am a student at NMHS and I think this school is dirty and unsanitary.

These days sending your child to high school can be frightening on many levels. I am thrilled to be sending my boys North Mecklenburg High School. They have received an exceptional education from teachers, staff and administrators who really care about students. While there are no guarantees, I do not fear for the safety of my children. The administration at North Meck has implemented safeguards that are flexible as situations present themselves. My believe in North Meck is so strong that I fought to keep them at this 50+ year old school over a new high school. Go Vikings!
