Our Mission Statement

The administration, faculty, and staff of North Pitt High School believe that the purpose of our school is to provide each of our students, from whatever background or economic status they come, with learning experiences commensurate with their individual needs, interests, and abilities in order that they be prepared academically, physically, socially, and emotionally to lead informed and productive lives.
