Message from the Principal

  • Dear Parents, Students, and all other Stakeholders:

    Welcome to North Charleston High School (NCHS)! The faculty and staff are excited and grateful the students who attend NCHS are entrusted to our care. Students are continuously being provided high-quality teachers and a safe orderly environment as it is incumbent upon all students to reach their maximun potential.

    NCHS is improving upon its academics. The number of AP courses has increased; honor courses have doubled; there is a continuation of dual enrollment courses at Trident Technical College and an increase of CTE completers; the graduation rate increased from 59.6 to 76.6, with a slight decrease last year; and more importantly, NCHS is no longer listed as "Unsatisfactory" on the State of South Carolina's report card.

    NCHS is a community stakeholder-friendly school. There is an open-door policy whereby stakeholders are encouraged to set up appointments to speak to administrators and teachers about students' concerns. It is the school's desire for its stakeholders to be participatory within our students' achievement ad students strive to become productive citizens.
