The North Fork School

Accredited private education for students who also love their public schools

Hard Work, Hard Statistics, Open Doors

I have been working in biotech/pharmaceuticals since 2012 as a regulatory affairs professional, wherein I help companies interface with FDA to get new biologic drugs approved. It has been interesting for me to find a career in writing, which makes up about 70% of my daily work. I remember there were times when I was less than enthusiastic about learning to write at the NFS, but now I am frequently complimented on my ability to communicate with written language, so I am passing on the compliment to you.

The integrated aspect of North Fork classes forges independent thought.

North Fork students have attended our classes online since 2007 from Idaho, California, Massachusetts, Montana, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Also, students on Rotary exchange programs in Sweden, Thailand, Belgium, and Germany have continuously earned high school credits and kept up with their North Fork cohorts by attending North Fork classes online while they study abroad.
