Principal's Welcome

Welcome to North Port High School, proud home of the Bobcats. Thank you for taking the time to explore our website!

North Port High School offers the most comprehensive
high school experience of any school in southwest Florida!

This is a bold statement! Please continue reading and exploring so that you understand why we can state this with such confidence! Whether you are a current student or the parent of a prospective high school student, we want you to know that we are very proud of our school, our traditions, and our numerous accomplishments.

               We are North Port!

                            We expect success;

                                           We create the environment that breeds success;

We put forth the effort to ensure that success happens!

We offer our students abundant opportunities to prepare for their post-secondary education and career goals. We guide our curriculum and instruction towards college ready benchmarks at each grade level.  We understand and respect that some students may choose not to attend college, but we want college to be a viable option. We believe that students who are ready for college are also better prepared for the military and work.

We believe that all students can and must learn.  As a school, we are committed to Excellence and Equity for our students. We know that we will not be truly excellent until we can ensure that college preparation and acceptance is the standard for all of our graduates. We are proud of our increasing SAT and ACT scores. In fact, one of the very few students in the nation to earn a perfect score on the ACT is a current North Port High School student! We can proudly report progress in closing the achievement gap between our highest and lowest performing subgroups of students as well.
