History

The school was built in 1957-1959 and an addition was added in 1972. The citizens of the neighboring town of Mason, New Hampshire expressed an interest in possibly joining the North Middlesex District in 2006. However, the choice was voted down by New Ipswich and other members of Mason's current school district.

Extra-Curricular Activities

North Middlesex Regional High School has a long list of extra-curricular opportunities for students to take. The number of clubs, sports, and art programs available ensure that every student can find a way to get involved in the school outside of the classroom.

North Middlesex is known throughout the state for its award-winning music department. There are three vocal performing ensembles at North Middlesex. The women's choir, "Bella Voce," has received several gold medal ratings in recent years at state competitions. There are six instrumental performing ensembles, including the wind symphony, concert band, jazz band, jazz ensemble, marching band, and winter percussion ensemble. All of these ensembles have been highly rewarded in recent years for achieving a level of excellence unmatched by almost any other school in the state. The North Middlesex Tri-M Music Honor Society students also run Stars@Symphony, a two-day event that takes place at Mechanics Hall (Worcester, MA) and Symphony Hall (Boston, MA) which showcases bands that receive gold medal ratings from the Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association.
