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 Mecklenburg High School is located in Huntersville, North Carolina. The school was founded in 1951, as an all white school. It integrated in the 1960's. With over 3000 students, it was the largest school population-wise in North Carolina during the 2005-2006 school year. The current principal is Joseph Burch. He replaced retired principal Jimmy K. Poole in 2005. There are many nicknames for the school, the most common being North Meck, North, and Crunk Meck. An older name was Redneck Tech. The school mascot is the Viking, and school colors are royal blue and white. The original mascot was a Rebel. The official school song is to the tune of UNC-CH's, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Hark the Sound, the fight song is to the tune of Ohio State's Across the Field, and the dance is named The Boogaloo. These are performed at pep rallies and sporting events.
North Mecklenburg High School first opened its doors to students on September 4, 1951. Students came from five local schools in Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Long Creek, and Derita, forming a student body of just over 400, with a senior class of 120, and a faculty of only 27. By 1952, the students began class councils and student body councils. Organizations like Key Club have been around since the first decade of North Meck. In 1957, North Meck won its first State Championship in baseball. The pre-Homecoming bonfire dates back to the 50's.
North Mecklenburg High School offers a comprehensive program that allows students to reach their potential through International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, Academically Gifted, and advanced classes, fine arts programs, Air Force JROTC, Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps and a variety of workforce development courses. The school has one of two auto diesel courses in N.C. Eighty-six percent of graduates attend four-year colleges, universities, or junior colleges. In 2006, it was placed 93rd on Newsweek Magazine's Top 1200 Schools list.
