Daily Announcements


Welcome to North High!

I am delighted to be your Principal and I hope you share in my excitement for the 2020-21 school year!
Although quite different than the past, we are here to help all our students both remote and hybrid, experience the best North has to offer.

North is a warm, caring place that cultivates student learning through inquiry, problem solving, and accountable conversations. Along with strong academics, we are devoted to student social and emotional growth. Our highly qualified teachers and support staff are preparing our students to be lifelong learners and global citizens.

At North, we encourage our students to become involved in our school community. We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Although some may not be available this year due to COVID, there are various sports that compete throughout the year and clubs that meet regularly. Please see the website and the calendar for more information.

We are fortunate to have parent organizations that care deeply about our school and organize many wonderful activities throughout the year. PTSA and Spartan Cub membership applications will be available soon.

I look forward to working with you and your children in the upcoming months. Please feel free to contact me should you have any suggestions, questions or concerns.

The district has been named among 2021’s Best Public High Schools in New York State based on a new study conducted by WalletHub. Each of the district’s schools were prominently ranked on the list.

WalletHub compared more than 1,200 public high schools across 26 metrics. These metrics were grouped into four categories, including college readiness, school experience, diversity and teacher and staff. Based on the data collected by WalletHub, Central High School’s score was 76.22, South High School’s score was 75.28 and North High School’s score was 73.81.

“I think this is an amazing achievement for our schools,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Bill Heidenreich. “We believe our students thrive in the Valley Stream Central High School District and this honor is a true reflection of the hard work, support and dedication of our entire staff, the parents, and our community to their education.”

North High School's SADD club hosted a successful Red Ribbon Week during March, with the help of the National Honor Society, English Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society and STOP club.

Red Ribbon Week is an annual campaign that spreads awareness on drug and alcohol abuse and also promotes a substance free life, especially among adolescents. This year's Red Ribbon Week included various activities, such as a hallway decorating contest and informal announcements that provided drug statistics.

Celebrations were heard throughout the district, as all three senior high schools hosted its Senior Day.

Seniors at Central, North and South high schools participated in an array of activities. This included ping-pong, knockerball, PlayStation games, Soccer Darts, a TikTok challenge, scavenger hunt, senior story activity, signing a “2021” banner, badminton, cornhole, writing activities and planting seeds. These activities varied according to each building.

In order to maintain safety regulations due to COVID-19, students wore their masks, were split up into groups and rotated throughout the day.

The district is proud to announce that two Junior Virtual Enterprise students were honored for their work in the nationwide Virtual Enterprises - Junior Ventures Dream Job Essay Competition.

Congratulations to North High School eighth grader Aleeza Dhillon for receiving an honorable mention, and Memorial Junior High School eighth grader Saahirah Mohsin for being selected as a runner-up.

With more than 1,000 submissions nationwide, participants were asked to identify a career path that they are passionate about and reflect on why they would be or will be qualified for the field. In addition, they were expected to demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills.

Aleeza’s essay described her dream of becoming a neurosurgeon, while Saahirah’s essay described her dream of becoming a diplomat. As active members of the district’s Virtual Enterprise program, Aleeza is an asset to North’s virtual business, “Relaxology,” and Saahirah is Co-CEO in Memorial’s company, “Clean Waves.”

The district applauds both students on this prestigious achievement.
