Open Quote Amazing combination of teachers, staff, principal and students. So many class choices for the students and a great school for my student to find HIS place. Couldn't be happier with all aspects of this high school. Close Quote

Open Quote i have a rising Jr. and am excited about all of the opportunities afforded him at this school. Their motto is "find yourself here" and that is truly evident with all the activities they have going on. He has been able to focus on studies, as well as find some extracurricular activities that he didn't know were out there to enjoy. Having come from Sandy Springs Middle School, he was more than prepared for his AP/honor classes. At the same time, i think he will be just as prepared to head off to college in a few years.

Open Quote I am a parent of 3 North Springs High School students (2 recent graduates and one rising junior) and am more than pleased with my kids' experiences, as well as my own experience. When my oldest daughter first started at NS, I chose to get involved by volunteering for PTO activities, school store, the foundation, etc. In doing so I was able to create personal relationships with administrators, teachers, parents and students. This enabled me to form a better picture of the environment in which my kids were spending their days. I found that I was very welcomed into the school community. All 3 of my children have found mentors and cheerleaders who have helped them through their struggles and celebrated their success with them, even after graduation. When students seek personal connections to teachers as mentors, everything changes for them. An overwhelming majority of teachers were committed to helping my children succeed, probably because my children showed an interest in succeeding and were willing to work for it. Their academic achievements helped the older 2 receive admittance to colleges of their choice, as well as scholarship opportunities to help us with the tuition. In addition to the academic growth, my children also grew tremendously as individuals and as citizens of our community. They developed an amazing strength of character, learning to push through adversity and work towards goals, work well with others who have similar interests as well as others who may have not share a common interest or motivation. They were well prepared for their next steps after high school. Close Quote

Open Quote My kids graduated from North Springs last year. My daughter just finished her first year at Tulane and my son his first year at Georgia Tech. I was co-president of the PTO for two years and involved in the Dance Booster Club. During those two years, I worked with most of the faculty and a lot of the parents at North Springs. As a parent, I loved North Springs and everything it offered my children, academically and socially. The faculty encourages parent involvement and appreciates it. The teachers at North Springs are dedicated and passionate about their jobs and care deeply for their students. North Springs offers several academic paths, on level. honors and Ap's. My kids were well prepared academically for college and socially for the real world and I attribute that to their years at North Springs. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
