Welcome

Education at North Shore is a student-centered, transformative, educational experience.  Here, students receive personal attention, diverse perspectives and are immersed in a culture of participation. Integrated into learning in every grade — junior kindergarten through 12 — are the 4 C’s representing collaboration, critical thinking, communication and creativity.
We prepare students with a challenging education that requires them to think critically, communicate effectively and engage fully in their intellectual growth and personal development. In doing so, they become self-confident ethical citizens of the world who embody our motto, “Live and Serve.” — Our Mission
