Shawnee Mission North Students, Parents, and Community 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  Shawnee Mission North has a long standing tradition of excellence, one that we strive to improve upon each and every year.  Whether it be in the classroom or in our athletic and activity programs, North students continually show their excellence and talents.  The community takes great pride not only in this school, but also in the accomplishments of the students and staff that work so hard to represent the excellence within SM North.  As the staff at SM North, our goal is to provide a world-class education that will develop life-long learners and responsible, globally-conscious citizens through high expectations for student achievement within a caring school environment.  SM North HS is a uniquely, amazing place where students can be themselves and yet also be part of something much larger than themselves - The Tribe.  Always remember - “Where Tradition Began….Excellence Continues” - NORTH PRIDE!
