Performance Over Adversity:
North Shore Senior High School in TEXAS TOP 10

        Galena Park ISD’s North Shore Senior High School ranked number five out of all Texas high school’s on a performance over adversity analysis performed by "Lead Your School," an online source that provides "school leaders with the tools, training and support..." according to their website,

To determine which schools face more difficult challenges to increase and/or maintain performance, Lead Your School personnel considered a number of factors: size of campus; type of campus; percentage of economically disadvantaged students; percentage of LEP students; mobility; [diversity]; number of tested grades served; instructional competence; and instructional excellence. The data is then calculated into a difficulty rating for every campus in the state of Texas.

The staff and students of North Shore Senior High School pay no attention to the "adversity" side of the equation. Students continue to focus on their education, graduation, and career, while teachers remain dedicated to giving the best education possible. North Shore Senior High School Associate Principal Jason Bollich stated, "All students are treated equally, no matter their background. We provide assistance, programs and opportunities for each student to be successful. We promote a culture of excellence and learning where the teachers are here to serve and mentor the students."
