North High School (Worcester, Massachusetts)

The New North High School

North High School (or Worcester North) is a public four-year high school and one of five public high schools in Worcester, Massachusetts.

The original North High, was located on Harrington Way, and was built in 1972 as a junior high school. It became North High in 1980 when the old North High on Salisbury Street was closed, sold to a private developer and subsequently turned into condos. There are approximately 1,200 students that attend North, which boasts a diverse student body. Non-Hispanic Whites make up 11 percent of the student body while Hispanics make up 34 percent. African-Americans comprise 47 percent and Asians eight percent.

The mascot of North High is a polar bear and the school colors are black and orange.          

Rivals of North High include South High Community School, Doherty Memorial High School and Burncoat High School. North High offers a variety of extra-curricular activities such as clubs and sports. North High is most noted for their boys basketball team, which won the district title in 2005.

North High's building was considered old and run down. The new building was read for use in 2011 and is approximately 225,000 square feet (20,900 m2). The Worcester City Council gave the go-ahead to a new North High in 2000, when the cost was estimated at $5 million. But the project was slow to get off the ground and ran into problems when delays and rising construction costs pushed the price tag of the new school to $8 million.

The new building was ready for use in the 2011–2012 school year.
