We Are Northtown
North Kansas City High School is the flagship high school of North Kansas city schools, and the centerpiece of education in the northland since 1925. With great neighbors and local businesses, northtown students in their “Purple and Gold” get to experience a special environment that is very unique to a suburban high school. this fosters a strong sense of responsibility and creates a great sense of community.
From the early agricultural classes taught in the 1920s to the highly esteemed International Baccalaureate program, North Kansas City High School has always strived to provide relevant and rigorous educational opportunities. Students thrive in northtown’s diverse learning community through programs like Scholar Bowl, Rocket Club, Robotics, and Science Olympiad. Not to be left out, students also excel in the arts, music, theater and athletics.
Northtown students also have the rare pleasure of enjoying Friday night football games in a famous football stadium constructed in 1941 as one of the final Works Progress administration projects ending the Great Depression in the 1930s. the stone wall surrounding the football stadium was constructed during that time period as well. In 2006, the football stadium was recognized by the KC Star as “the best high school facility in the Kansas city area to view a Friday night game”.
In a grand plan to merge old and new, north Kansas city high school is experiencing a $65 million renovation that was completed in February 2020.
