About North Quincy High School

North Quincy High School opened first as North Junior High School in 1926 and added one high school grade a year in the early 30’s, graduating its first high school class in 1934. In 1959, the seventh and eighth grade students moved to the newly-opened Atlantic Middle School, leaving grades nine through twelve at North Quincy High School.  Renovations and an addition were made to the school building during 1978-1980.

The school colors are red and black and the students are spiritedly known as the “Red Raiders.”

Message from the Principal of NQHS:

Tradition.  Pride.  Excellence.  Achievement.  Four words that mean so much to a school and community that have embodied each of them for decades.  It is my pleasure to serve as the principal of North Quincy High School and work with students, families, staff, and the community to ensure that they continue for generations to come.  We uphold these principles in everything we do.  They are evident in the classroom, on the athletic field, on the stage, even in our interactions in the hallways.  We bring them with us when we represent our school in the community and in competitions involving everything from the drill team to the History Bowl and Robotics.


The NQHS faculty and staff are a dedicated group of professionals who are here to work with our families and community to ensure the academic success and personal growth of every single student.  We have a strong and active Parent Advisory Council (PAC).  I urge parents and families to stay connected to the school by communicating with teachers and staff and participating in PAC.  When we work together, we best meet the needs of all of our students.


On North Quincy!
