North High Community Coalition is making strides

North High is open for business

North High School is open and thriving and will be open next fall. The North High Community Coalition, a coalition of parents, teachers, students, alumni groups, community members and activists that was instrumental in keeping the school open, has not rested.

The coalition has been busy recruiting next year’s freshman class. A few dozen incoming freshmen have already made the school its first choice. You may have already received a visit from them or a telephone call as part of their active door-knocking and telephone campaign to inform the Minneapolis community about the benefits of attending North High.

The committee is also seeking to recruit enough adults to mentor every North High student.

North High has lots to offer, like many of the other Minneapolis high schools, but it also has some unique features such as smaller class sizes. At present, classes average about 15 students, allowing for more individualized instruction and attention. North also has the only on-campus health services. Students who attend North have access to free medical and dental services.

This Saturday, January 29, at 11 am, the North High Community Coalition invites the Minneapolis community to a North High Community Visioning and Potluck. The event, which will take place at North High, is designed to help the community come up with a vision for the school that will make it even more viable and attractive in the years to come.

Come celebrate the New Year and a new beginning for North High. Share a meal, share your ideas, and be a part of our community vision for North High School!
