• News About International Baccalaureate  (IB) at North
    In addition to our current IB Diploma Programme, North High School is now a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). We anticipate this candidacy will last one full school year before the MYP is fully implemented.  The MYP is applicable  to all students at the freshman and sophomore level. It provides a framework for learning which will encourage students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers. The MYP is aligned to the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards. As an IB World School, North promotes and embodies the IB commitment to high quality, challenging and international education. We believe that this philosophy is of utmost importance for our students and will prepare them for success in college, career, and life.

  • Health Alert
    With the flu and cold season upon us, our school nurses request that you not send your student to school if he/she is ill. We have had several students arrive at school sick, and check in with the school nurse at the direction of their parents. Not only does this overburden the school health centers, but sick students run the risk of infecting others. For more details about when not to send your child to school click here:
