A Message from North's Principal - James Bolen

Welcome to the North High School webpage. Valley Stream North High School has a proud tradition of student achievement both in and out of the classroom. The building encompasses grades 7-12, including our district-wide English as a New Language (ENL) program.  This affords North High School with the opportunity to provide diverse and interesting course offerings along with a multitude of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Students can take advantage of the academic, artistic, vocational, performing arts and athletic programs that provide both a rewarding and enriching junior-senior high school experience.

The faculty and staff at North High School are committed to the success of all students. Our distinguished faculty works closely with students to develop essential 21st Century skills focused on critical thinking, analysis and collaboration. Our staff provides outstanding support services for all students and their families. In addition, North High School maintains two parent organizations and an alumni organization that provide consistent support for our students and our comprehensive junior-senior high school program.

I personally hope that all students enjoy their time at North High School and see it as a home where they have been challenged to develop creatively, intellectually and athletically.  We have a commitment to make our students’ high school career one of tremendous growth – fostering a life-long love for learning in each of our students’ areas of interest.  Therefore, together as a partnership of staff, students, parents and community we remain focused on generating student growth and passion for learning.


North High School Donates 1,600 Sandwiches to Help the Hungry

Approximately 140 Valley Stream North High School students gathered on the afternoon of Feb. 15 to make 1,600 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for patrons of the Mary Brennan Inn in Hempstead. They labeled each sandwich bag with a personal inspirational message.

This effort was a collaborative project that involved members of the National Honor Society and English as a New Language classes. The two groups worked together as part of the ENL Buddy Program, which serves as a mentoring opportunity and fosters friendships.

Students donated all of the food items and the Senior High School Student Council contributed other supplies. North has held similar activities in past years, and this one boasted the largest number of sandwich donations to date.
