Named by Baltimore Magazine as one of the Baltimore area's best high schools, North Harford High School continues to meet the academic, social and cultural needs of our community. Located in northern Harford County, the school has been serving this agricultural community which in recent years transitioned to a suburban-like community for 53 years. With great excitement, our school community is anticipating the pending modernization of our building, which will be completed in three phases over the course of four years. The modernization of the building began in April 2004. The new Media Center, auxiliary gymnasium, and cafeteria are scheduled for completion for the 2005-2006 school year. We enjoy a rich tradition of academic and cultural excellence and have strengthened and continue to increase the number of academic and extra-curricular offerings to our students. Our choral music program enjoys international acclaim. We offer a variety of clubs and organizations to foster student involvement and our athletic program is consistently successful in county and state competition. North Harford High continues to develop special programs to ease the transition from eighth to ninth grade. A successful initiative has been the use of a school planner/calendar for all students which helps with student organization and planning skills and student acceptance of the responsibility for their own learning.
The North Harford Professional Learning Community is committed to fostering improved student achievement and a sense of self worth and belonging to our entire school family. Our parent groups include PTSA, Booster Club, Endzone Club, Art Guild Parents, choral parents, band parents, and parent/community advisory group. In addition, parents are very involved in activities such as homecoming, musical activities and graduation. The school and community are dedicated to being active and involved in the life of our students.
