A Message from North's Principal - James Bolen

Welcome to the North High School webpage. Valley Stream North High School has a proud tradition of student achievement both in and out of the classroom. The building encompasses grades 7-12, including our district-wide English as a New Language (ENL) program.  This affords North High School with the opportunity to provide diverse and interesting course offerings along with a multitude of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Students can take advantage of the academic, artistic, vocational, performing arts and athletic programs that provide both a rewarding and enriching junior-senior high school experience.

Our distinguished faculty works closely with students to develop essential 21st Century skills focused on critical thinking, analysis and collaboration. Our staff provides outstanding support services for all students and their families. In addition, North High School maintains two parent organizations and an alumni organization that provide consistent support for our students and our comprehensive junior-senior high school program.

I personally hope that all students enjoy their time at North High School and see it as a home where they have been challenged to develop creatively, intellectually and athletically.  We have a commitment to make our students’ high school career one of tremendous growth – fostering a life-long love for learning in each of our students’ areas of interest.  Therefore, together as a partnership of staff, students, parents and community we remain focused on generating student growth and passion for learning.

The Valley Stream Central High School District is proud to announce thirteen winners in the Martin J. Kelly Writing Contest of the Irish Cultural Society of Garden City, which drew 610 submissions from 29 schools across Long Island.
Twelve poets from South High School and one from North will each be awarded a $50 prize during a recognition ceremony, which will be held on May 3 at the Garden City Library.

Congratulations to South students Alan Ayala, Wardah Aziz, Yajvin Dabbiru, Richard Gonzalez, Hannah Johnston, Matthew Kim, Erin Laxton, Jillian Ledesma, Paige Manini, David Manikas, Joshua Rajan, and Dahlia Woodly, and North student Gabriella Mondesir. South's English teachers Deirdre Gordon, Stephanie Guzowski and Kerry Butler encouraged all of their students to create original Gaelic Quatrains as per this year's contest, and Gabriella developed her work in Creative Writing class under the guidance of teacher Nicole Ryan.

The contest is modeled after the SAT’s essay component, with an emphasis on a skillful introduction and closing, a wide variety of sentence structure, a formal style and objective tone and a command of the conventions of standard written English.
