Although North Augusta is a relatively small town, its high school is both large and extrememly diverse. Whether it be amongst the teaching staff or the students themselves, North Augusta High School is a combined mixture of outstanding academics, impressive athletics and school spirit that can never be beaten. Some of my favorite experiences are those in which the students simply come together for different events, uniting as a community and showing those around us the importance of teamwork. If given the change to choose another school, I would do absolutely nothing differently. The lessons learned and the experiences I was given are irreplacable.

Great school. Extracurricula activities are also available for students. Parent support is great for all activities.

My overall school experience was a ton of fun. Between challenging classes, football, and other extracurricular activities, there was always something to do to keep me entertained and busy.
