North Polk High School Ratings & Reviews

Our children was only in district for a short period of time. Yet, the experience we had was less than wonderful. The pre school program is a joke. They don't teach, rather just have the kids play most of the day. Our oldest child not only was singled out as a "bad child " due to their time in foster care, but they had my child sign paper work without my knowledge and or permission. It seems no none is able to make a decision without the approval of the Superintendent of schools making the final say. This includes just asking for an informal chat with the teacher about your child, OH I have to confirm that with(Name Omitted),I'll get back to you. It was an awful experience for us as parents and for children who had already been through hell. May others find it to be a better place than we did.

The HS music program has been declining over the past 6-8 years. The sound they produce is not music. The teacher is unable to provide individual lessons that encouraged or educated. Outside resources had to found for advancement in music. Advanced education opportunities are not available. Only 1-2 teachers have the education required to teach AP course work. Incentives have been put in place for teachers to reach this level of education, few have attempted. Outside resources are needed to advance your education. Bullying, yes it is alive and doing well. Conversations with teachers, the Principle and the Superintendent left the issues unresolved and increased degrees of hatred shared in the halls of North Polk. The school taught my children to deal with it or leave. I shared my concerns with other parents and they described bullying stories, but then requested that I not mention their names as they fear retaliation. Yes, I congratulate those who made it through without being bullied. I wish more children could be a part of that 1% bully free.

As a (excelling) student, though North Polk is a happy and safe environment, it is more geared for sports than anything else. ELP (extended learning program) is not very good at all, the only teacher only working half days, and our computers years old and barely alive. With the new high school and all, I was really hoping we'd get a better program, but that had not been the case... I do not feel the advanced learners can explore and grow as much as they could. I really hope North Polk steps up their game, and maybe we could actually start to rival other schools... We certainly have the students to do it... Just not the tech and funding.

I have been going to north polk since kindergarten and I think it is a really great school... Teachers use their own time to help you understand the lesson, and it's not just sports that north polk focuses on. We also have some really talented music teachers, and the students really are focused, and educated all because of the amazing staff. Not to mention the fact that for the many years I've attended northpolk I was never picked on in any way shape or form. Northpolk really is an amazing school!

I'd also rate this school as a 0 out of 5 stars if I could. They don't try to do anything that could possibly be user friendly for a parent. There is so much technology and they are SO far behind. Most of the teachers seem to be horribly unorganized. I'm assuming it is because of the poor teacher to student ratio. If your child ever gets picked on, instead of doing what a teacher or adult should do, they tell your child to be a problem solver and deal with it themselves! Can't say enough bad things. Completely agree with the bond money issue and the fact that they only seem to care about sports.
