Academics

 

Blue & Gold Academic Awards

Students can earn an academic letter at the Blue and Gold ceremony held each spring by earning at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA in their 3rd, 5th and 7th semesters. Students are presented a letter for their first recognition and earn a pin for each subsequent year in which they meet the requirements. 

The Blue & Gold ceremony = will be held on April 14th.  The breakfast starts at 7:30 AM in the "old gym."  The Academic Awards Ceremony begins at 8:45 AM in the auditorium.  Tickets can be purchased for $10.00 for the breakfast.  Due to parking constraints, a shuttle bus will run from Skinner Magnet Center (33rd & Ames) to North both before and after the ceremony.

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity is a fundamental value of teaching, learning, and behavior. Maintaining high standards of academic integrity ensures the sustainability of the OPS educational process. Therefore, students are expected to commit to and be responsible for demonstrating the five fundamental values, even in the face of adversity:

1. Honesty
2. Trust
3. Fairness
4. Respect
5. Responsibility

The following show a lack of of academic integrity: cheating, collusion, falsifying records, lying, plagiarism (including electronic - see turnitin.com below). alteration of materials, forgery, or providing or using external assistance relating to an examination, test, quiz, or daily assignment, without the expressed permission of the teacher, including looking at another student's work, sharing answers, or copying another student's work or any act designed to give unfair academic advantage to the student.

turnitin.com

turnitin.com is a paid service available to North High students. It's primary purpose is the prevention of plagiarism and its use, in some classes, is mandatory.
