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. 

North also offers an extensive array of extra-curricular activities including athletics and arts. North is home to the State AA Champion Boys Soccer Team. Two of our Girls Cross Country athletes placed in the top 10 in the Minnesota State Meet. We are also very proud of our award-winning drama department.  North students are involved in several groups such as Pay It Forward, National Honor Society and Student Council who volunteer in the community in an effort to extend North’s reach beyond its walls.  

Parents are valued partners in our school.  We truly believe that it is our mission to work together to be committed to learning for all students as they are guided to reach their highest potential. 

Thank you for entrusting us with your children and partnering with us to ensure the best educational opportunities for each and every one!
