About Us

Bloomington High School North is a vibrant learning community serving 1,650 students in grades nine through twelve. A dedicated faculty of 120 educators works hard to ensure that students’ social, emotional, and academic needs are met. One of North’s greatest assets is the diversity found within our student body. Our school reflects the vibrancy found in the wider Bloomington community. Teenagers from a number of ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds gather daily to learn alongside each other. They exchange stories, ideas, and ways of experiencing the world. Teachers receive regular training on culturally responsive practices thanks to the eff orts of faculty experts and district consultants. As a result, North students are well-prepared to engage with a dynamic, global community after high school. Learning at North isn’t just about memorizing facts and figures to pass a test. Our academic programs are designed to help students think critically, engage purposively, and be prepared to positively influence the wider world. The paths students take to reach those goals are as varied as the students themselves. Cougars have access to college preparatory, honors, and university-level courses in all major subject areas. Students can pursue advanced coursework at Indiana University through IU Release, earn credit for completing internships at local businesses and community partners, or prepare for employment and industry certification through Hoosier Hills Career Center.
