    Starting to think about post-high planning? CLICK HERE to meet with your counselor for a one-on-one Junior Interview meeting.

    All Juniors should be developing their 11th/12th grade timeline in order to start planning for the rest of high school and beyond. These action steps may include attending a college fair, applying for a job, researching military options, or seeking out volunteer opportunities. We want your students to start thinking about their options and how to plan the steps needed to achieve their post-high goals.

    HERE is the powerpoint from our Junior class meetings held on 2/19/20 and 2/20/20. We look forward to working more closely with and assisting the Class of 2021 as they get ready for graduation next school year.



    It is your responsibility to request/order your Final Transcript on Parchment.  We CANNOT do this for you!  All colleges and universities will require proof of graduation, and your transcript WITH a diploma date is the only way that this can be indicated. 

    · North High School Website – Academics & Guidance – Transcript Requests – Order My Transcript (through the Parchment system)

    Those students that need to finish their required credits in summer school should NOT request a Final Transcript until all credits have been completed and your transcript has been updated.  In addition, if you do not finish earning your required credits before Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019, your diploma will no longer reflect a June 6th, 2019 graduation date.  After September 3rd, your diploma will reflect the actual date that you completed your required credits.   

    Please note: As of August 1st, 2019 you will be considered an Alumni.  As an Alumni the cost of your transcript increases from $5.00 to $10.00.  

    PLEASE NOTE: No transcripts will be sent if you don't request them through Parchment!
