North Atlanta High School, Atlanta, United States

North Atlanta High School is a high school of approximately 1,600 students in Buckhead, the northern part of Atlanta, United States. The school is a part of Atlanta Public Schools.The school was formed after North Fulton High School combined with Northside High School during the 1991–1992 school year. This merger resulted in North Atlanta High School being the only high school in Atlanta Public Schools (APS) to host two magnet programs: the International Studies Program and the Performance Arts. The Performance Arts program is now technically defunct but North Atlanta continues to encourage students' artistic abilities and talents in performance.HistoryNorthside High School (1950–1991)Fulton County School Board opened Northside High School in 1950 at the current location of the NAHS building. Northside High School became part of the APS when the property was annexed into the city of Atlanta. The school colors were purple and white and the school nickname was the Tigers. In 1969, APS opened a planetarium at the Northside campus. Originally, it was one out of three planetariums owned by Atlanta Public Schools (the other two being at Fulton and Harper High). It can seat 110 people. A magnet program in the Performing Arts was started in 1972.North Atlanta High School (1991–)In September 1991, by consolidating North Fulton High School and Northside High School, the Atlanta Board of Education formed North Atlanta High School. The students attended the North Fulton campus until June 1994, while the Northside campus underwent a $15 million renovation. In 1998, North Atlanta was designated as a Georgia School of Excellence from the Georgia Department of Education. After the 2001–2002 school year, West Fulton High School and Harper-Archer High School closed. Since there wasn't adequate capacity at Douglass High School, the closest school, the students in the Scott and Boyd Elementary school districts were rezoned to North Atlanta. This area encompassed both Hollywood Courts and the former Perry Homes. Starting in 2004, Newsweek rated North Atlanta as being one of the best high schools in the country for three consecutive years. In Spring of 2008, the Aga Khan visited and gave a speech at North Atlanta as a part of the annual IB conference. 4111 Northside Pkwy NW 30327 Atlanta United States Call: (404) 802-4700
