School Reviews

  • Recommended December 20, 2010 - The Academic Program is fit for all levels. North has a highly praised Fine Arts Program. It has a 63 Acre campus, with many different classrooms for teaching and learning. Overall, this school is amazing. Even if it is the undermined little brother of nearby SMHS, NMHS still has a ton to offer. - Posted by Student/Alumni
