"Live and Serve"

At North Shore, "Live and Serve" is more than just a motto – it's something our students embrace in their learning and embody through their action.
Our service program seeks to foster student ownership and leadership. In classes, teachers implement service learning, a practice that links classroom learning and service activities to empower students as ethical citizens. Other projects are student driven, taking place outside the classroom through student government, clubs or other activities.

We endeavor to build strong, reciprocal relationships with our service partners. And our students are encouraged to see service as a lifelong endeavor and preparing them to become "self-confident, ethical citizens of the world," described in our mission.
