High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
North Farmington High School is a public secondary school located in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA. It was established in 1961, it currently has 1300 students in grades 9 through 12. The principal is Mr. Richard Jones, Class of 1967.
In 1959, many homes in the area were being built by families with older children, so it was apparent that a new junior and senior high school were needed. The Board of Education put together a proposal asking voters to approve a 3 million dollars bond for the construction of a new junior-senior high on a site at 13 Mile and Farmington Road,  two new elementary schools and renovation of existing schools.
Students chose the name Raiders as their mascot but a personal identity was needed for the Raider, so the art class designed the original Raider logo that is still being used today and was named El Cid. The school colors were originally planned to be gold and brown, but instead, yellow and brown, along with white, are used to detail most of the uniforms and emblems. The change was due to the limited availability and higher price of the realistic gold material. The gold was replaced by champion yellow, which today remains the color used by the school.
North Farmington High School is the Northern Star, the newspaper published monthly by its journalism class, available for one dollar. The Northern Star has won statewide journalism competitions on multiple occasions and is generally regarded to be one of the best high school newspapers in the nation.
The mission of North Farmington High School is to educate their students so that they demonstrate performance and skill levels commensurate with a technologically changing society, that they reach their potential for creativity and life-long learning, and that they enter the global community as productive, contributing members. They will accomplish all of this in a spirit of respect and partnership, with open communication between parents, students, staff and community.
