Message from the Principal

  • Dear Parents and Students:

    Welcome to North Charleston High School (NCHS)! We are excited and grateful you have chosen to entrust your children to us. We are working very hard to provide all students with high-quality teachers and a safe orderly environment in which to learn. It is very important students attend school each day and strive to reach their maximum potential.

    NCHS is working towards improving student achievement and reducing expulsions, suspensions, absenteeism, and tardies - resulting in greater academic productivity. In addition, students will be able to participate in newly created clubs, athletics, and other extracurricular activities.

    An open-door policy is in place at NCHS for all stakeholders.  If one needs to speak to an administrator, please stop by the school; and we will make time to meet.

    Finally, we want all stakeholders, particularly parents, to be participatory in NCHS’s school objectives and endeavors. NCHS is your community school.


    Henry E. Darby,
