Not many high schools have the hometown feel of camaraderie and support. The teachers, administration, office workers and all the staff at North Posey work together to ensure that each student feels welcome, respected, and secure. It is their mission to create an environment in which each student is given every opportunity to thrive socially, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
NPHS has been ranked academically as a superior school time and again. I can see why. The many social clubs, academic clubs, sports clubs all have excelled in their success. Each administrator, teacher, coach, and staff member work towards helping each other to give their students the tools to improve.
My father and grandmother graduated from North Posey as well as my two older brothers. We all have had wonderful experiences and look forward to the next generations Vikings to come. Go Vikings!

Everyone thinks high school is hard, and I will be the first to admit it. High school is like Junior High but more challenging with more homework. I am thankful for my school because it is small and in a small hometown where we all grow up and know everyone. The teachers are friendly, strict, and hardworking. The teachers definitely push us to work and encourage us to do our best as well. I have heard many college students and parents say that North Posey High school prepares us for college amazingly compared to other schools. North Posey High School has been an "A" school for many consecutive years. When I hear what other schools are learning and there test scores, at that moment I instantly thank North Posey!
My overall experience was good. I attended for the full four years and am now an Alum of NPHS. The teachers are great people along with the staff. I had the opportunity to be on four of the sports teams while in high school and gained leadership through them. The school offers a lot to its students. There is not much diversity due to the location of the school. I believe the school had decent funding for sports and extracurriculars. The school is in a good location that allows it to be a safe area for students. I enjoyed my time there and am grateful for what I learned. I am appreciative of the teachers and the two principles Dr. Strieter and Mr. Fisher, for they were the best two that our school ever had.
