Dear North High Parents and Guardians,
It is with great joy that I welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. My name is Jodi Shuppert, and I am honored to be the newly appointed principal at North High School. I have already witnessed the strong community support for our school and the rich history and culture that make North High unique. This year we will be celebrating our 70th anniversary and we will be focusing on maintaining the level of excellence that has come to be expected from many years of proud North High Alumni.
At North High, our core values are Success, Trust, Ambition, Respect, and Spirit (STARS), and we celebrate when students and staff display these core values through STARS on Point (SOP). We encourage all Stars to meet these expectations in and out of the classroom. At North High we know that there are many different ways to find Success. We encourage Stars to build Trust within the North High community so that it is a safe space that is filled with Respect for others. We use Ambition to focus on building growth mindsets through goal setting. And finally, we hope that all Stars show Spirit and celebrate the fact that they are forever part of North High’s History!
We are proud to provide a rigorous educational experience that is focused on engaging students in their learning and supporting them on their path to success. North High has a robust Career and Technical Education program with a variety of offerings that meet the needs of many students. Encourage your student to find something to engage in during their 4 years with us. They can choose a CTE program, play a sport, join an academic team, or participate in a club. Students who find something to participate in are more likely to find fulfillment in their high school experience.
Parents, I would also challenge you to find a way to connect with us. We are partners in your students’ education, and we want to work together to help your student on their path to graduation. At North High, there are a variety of ways for parents to engage. Join our Booster Club, attend our School Site Council Meetings, or come to any of the events that the Parent Center hosts throughout the year. By coming together as a school community, we can ensure that all our students leave North High Prepared to Succeed and ready to represent the Star Family with honor in our community.
