Daily Announcements


Welcome to North High!

I am delighted to be your Principal and I hope you share in my excitement for the 2020-21 school year!
Although quite different than the past, we are here to help all our students both remote and hybrid, experience the best North has to offer.

North is a warm, caring place that cultivates student learning through inquiry, problem solving, and accountable conversations. Along with strong academics, we are devoted to student social and emotional growth. Our highly qualified teachers and support staff are preparing our students to be lifelong learners and global citizens.

At North, we encourage our students to become involved in our school community. We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Although some may not be available this year due to COVID, there are various sports that compete throughout the year and clubs that meet regularly. Please see the website and the calendar for more information.

We are fortunate to have parent organizations that care deeply about our school and organize many wonderful activities throughout the year. PTSA and Spartan Cub membership applications will be available soon.

I look forward to working with you and your children in the upcoming months. Please feel free to contact me should you have any suggestions, questions or concerns.
