We provide 50 minute instruction on most days to ensure that students see teachers nearly every day (9 out of every 10 days). One of the unique features on this school is that many if not most parents attended NMHS which gives the school tremendous community pride (Dubbed Northside Pride locally).
North Marion High School is proud to be the home of two innovative and challenging magnet programs: the Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) program and Industrial Biotechnology.
