Sheboygan North High School
Parents, Students, Teachers, and Community Members –
North remains much like many similar-sized public high schools. North is a truly
comprehensive high school, founded in a liberal arts philosophy. We offer more than
40 varied co-curricular clubs, activities, and sports; AP and honors level courses in a
number of curricular areas; and opportunities for students to find their niche in a great
number of entry level and Capstone experiences. North High School continues to reflect
and embrace the diversity of the community at large, accepting and growing all students
to prepare each of our young adults for success in their next endeavors. Despite these similarities, it is what North does differently than similar-sized public high schools that makes our learning community unique and what I consider the best option for students and families.
Our uniqueness begins, and perhaps ends, in a total commitment by all staff members to building and maintaining positive relationships with students, staff, parents and community members. These relationships that are built and maintained provide the gateway to academic achievement, personal growth, and intellectual development in a safe and caring environment.
In addition to the building and maintenance of deep, meaningful relationships, North’s
staff remains committed to providing common, highly engaging, rigorous opportunities for all students inside and outside the classroom. These common, rigorous opportunities
provide every opportunity for all students to share experiences, and reap the benefits of
staff collaboration while being exposed to best practices in all curricular areas.
Finally, the uniqueness of North involves the complete understanding of and commitment to literacy across all content areas. Just as relationships provide the gateway to achievement, growth and development, literacy forms the common bridge between all content areas, providing the much-needed skills and strategies for all students to be successful within the walls of North High School and well beyond.
These core beliefs of relationship building; common, highly engaging, rigorous curriculum; and literacy across all content areas form the building blocks of all that North
does for and with students and families. Our core beliefs, coupled with the willingness to
always consider doing things differently and better in the best interest of our students, continue to make North a place where all students can explore, learn and grow. Flexible scheduling, essential skills portfolios, and work with National History Day are all
examples of such willingness and commitment to provide students with the experiences
that will make each of them ready for life after North.
It was with these core beliefs in mind that the Pulse of North High School Survey was created. This survey was created through the collaborative efforts of North parents, students and staff members as a way to gain valuable input regarding the efforts and progress being made toward our identified core beliefs. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey utilizing the link listed below. The Pulse of North High School survey shall be available for completion March 23, 2015 through April 17, 2015. Please know that your input is critical to the ongoing success and improvement of the North High School learning community. Thank you for your support in this endeavor.
