Freshman Center

The North High School Freshman Center is a comprehensive transition program for all first-time freshmen. The Freshman Center implements a school-within-a-school model designed to help all students achieve at high levels. The unique features of the Freshman Center ensure a smooth transition from junior high to high school. The smaller environment of the Freshman Center, combined with a professional faculty and staff committed to incorporating research-based best practices, allows for more individualized student attention and minimizes the opportunity for students to “slip through the cracks.” A wide range of elective courses, taught throughout the building, allow students to pursue a variety of interests. The support network provided by the Freshman Center provides students with needed encouragement while introducing them to the expectations, possibilities, and responsibilities of high school.
