      One comment about North High

      I'm a parent.
      This school's weaknesses are the amount of student suspensions/expulsions.

      You also need to include the number of student suspensions and expulsions in a given year. That sheds light on the disciplinary actions that take place which could shed light on how well the school is policed and/or the amount of students that break rules. Suspensions also lead to students falling behind in school work who don't always catch up.
