North students earn college credits
During the 2012-2013 school year, high school students at North earned 1,286 college credits from the University of Minnesota
through the College In the Schools (CIS) program. This translates to a tuition savings of more than $595,000 for the families of those students who take advantage of this opportunity.

The CIS program delivers University of Minnesota courses to high-achieving high school students for college credit. In School District 622, the program is provided to students at no charge to them and allows them to earn college credits while still in high school. Last year, high school students in District 622 could choose between 27 different Advanced Placement or College In the Schools courses.

Welcome to the North High website.  North High is committed to providing opportunities to educate and empower all of our students to excel in our changing world. 

We are proud of our school and our academic program strives to meet the educational needs of all students. North sets high expectations, promotes academic rigor and aims to develop strong character.  We believe it is important for children to be active participants in their education and learn to be accountable for their actions.
