The faculty and staff miss our Cougars
Just want to take this opportunity to say Thanks to Coach Tony Eady, for agreeing to engage our young men and boys at the 2020 Boyz to Men Conference on Saturday August 29th at Burke High School.
Every since I met Coach Eady he has been motivating and uplifting our young men so I was extremely excited and honored when he accepted my invitation to come out and encourage our young boys at the 2020 Boyz to Men Conference.
So often both Men and Boys have been left out of the conversation when it comes to ending violence against women. This conference serves to change that narrative and to Enlighten, Encourage and Empower young men and boys.
We will have speakers and breakout sessions, some of the topics covered will be healthy relationships, bullying, gun violence, understanding male masculinity and the root cause of physical / sexual violence.
Our mission is to give our youth solutions and alternatives to violence and teach them consent and respect for women in general.
I'll be opening registration for the conference soon so if you have a son in middle school or high school and you want him to be a part of this conference please inbox me..
To our Cougar Scholars, class of 2020 - we love you and your accomplishments!
Mrs. McIntosh, class of 1996 - Dutch Fork High
NCHS alum ReZsaun Lewis sharing his time and support for all scholars!
Check it out and please register - it’s free and a great experience to add to your high school resume 🙂
Please share and join us for helpful info and updates from various industries impacted by COVID-19.

We're a school of many. Our Motto " Education is a Possession in Which Man Cannot Be Robbed." Home o This is our song to thee.

We were so lucky and excited to have two former NCHS students, now freshmen at The Citadel, come talk to our NJROTC students.


The only thing ugly about NCHS are our ugly Christmas sweaters


Today Ms. Rosendary's English 2 classes made smores in the bus lot while they learned about different holiday traditions and cultures that also align with their English 2 reading and writing lessons. What a great way to incorporate the holiday spirit with priority standards and learning


Let's goooo Cougars

Here at NCHS we have a collaborative approach to everything.

Each team meets at least once a week and is made up of administrators, instructional coaches, counselors, Combined Intervention, Parent Advocates, Communities in Schools, and other support staff. We all believe in doing what it takes to support the well-being of our students and families. Pictured here: Ms. Studemeyer, Mr. Spitulski, Ms. Vickers, and Mr. Bowens


Hello Cougar families

Here at NCHS we believe in student voice. We have begun a new program with students and Mr. Darby to gain insight into what the students need, what needs to be heard, to brainstorm, and to collaborate together. Our new "Donuts with Darby" began today with our Student Influencer leaders in their 3rd block Global Citizenship class. The students were even able to pitch their winter spirit week ideas to Mr. Darby. We are very excited for this new project and very proud of our student leaders at NCHS.


Congrats. NCHS is on fireeeeeeeee in athletics this week!

Congratulations to Coach Pool, Coach Floyd, and the Cougar varsity wrestlers on their duals victory over Military Magnet tonight


Students, Teachers, and Stakeholders: Tomorrow, December 6th we will have mandatory English 2 EOC writing make-ups. If your student is enrolled in an English 2 class and missed the writing EOC today, December 5th, they must report to the auditorium first thing upon arrival tomorrow, December 6th. Please ensure they have rested, studied, and eaten breakfast. Please ensure they are on time tomorrow. Thank you for your assistance with this.

Estudiantes, maestros, padres, y tutores: mañana, 6 de diciembre, tendremos recuperaciones del examen obligatorio estatual de escritura de inglés 2 EOC. Si su estudiante está inscrito en una clase de Inglés 2 y no presento el EOC de escritura hoy, 5 de diciembre, debe presentarse en el auditorio a primera hora de su llegada mañana, 6 de diciembre. Asegúrese de que hayan descansado, estudiado y desayunado. Por favor, asegúrese de que lleguen a tiempo mañana. Gracias por asistir con esto.


We are so proud of our NCHS JROTC cadets. They are marching in the North Charleston holiday parade today


Buenos días familias de Cougar.El lunes 5 de diciembre de 2022, cualquier estudiante inscrito en una clase de Inglés 2 tomará el examen EOC estatal solo para la escritura de Inglés 2. Este es un examen obligatorio para todos los estudiantes inscritos en la clase de Inglés 2 y también cuenta como una calificación importante en su clase. Es MUY importante que se asegure de que su estudiante llegue a la escuela a tiempo, preparado, bien descansado, habiendo desayunado y listo. Su estudiante se reportará a sus clases regulares programadas y seguirá un horario regular de campanas. Tomarán el examen estatal durante la hora de la clase. Si tienen Inglés 2 durante el bloque 4, se presentarán en el primer almuerzo y luego tomarán su examen de escritura de Inglés 2 durante el bloque 3 con su maestro de Inglés 2 en el salón de clases. Asegurense a sus estudiantes que estudien todo el fin de semana como sus maestros los han preparado para hacerlo. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en llamar a la oficina principal y preguntar. Nuevamente, este es un examen muy importante y queremos que a nuestros estudiantes les vaya bien. Estamos muy orgullosos de su arduo trabajo. Además, asegúrense a su estudiante de participar en el concurso de preguntas del día de EOC hasta el 10 de enero de 2022 para tener la oportunidad de recibir algunos Air Pods de Apple. Llamaremos más cerca de las fechas del EOC de enero para informarle sobre la logística de los exámenes estatales para el 9 y 10 de enero. Gracias y pasen un buen fin de semana.

Send a message to learn more.


Hello Cougar families:

Monday, December 5th, 2022, any student enrolled in an English 2 class will be taking the state EOC exam for the English 2 writing only. This is a required test for every student enrolled in English 2 and it also counts as a major grade in their class. It is VERY important that you ensure your student arrives at school on time, prepared, well-rested, having eaten breakfast, and ready to go. Your student will report to their regular scheduled classes and follow a regular bell schedule. They will take the state exam during their class time. If they have English 2 during 4th block, they will report to 1st lunch and then take their English 2 writing exam during 3rd block with their English 2 teacher in the classroom. Please encourage your students to study all weekend like their teachers have prepared them to do so. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the front office and ask. Again, this is a very important test and we want our students to do well. We are very proud of their hard work. Also, please encourage your student to enter the EOC question of the day contest until January 10th, 2022 for a chance to enter a set of Apple air pods. We will call closer to the January EOC dates to inform you of the testing logistics for January 9th and 10th. Thank you and have a great weekend.

At NCHS we believe in student voice. We believe our students should have a say in their education, be able to express what works, what needs tweaking, and be able to collaborate on ideas to best fit their needs. Once a month Mr. Darby will meet with a different group of students during "Donuts with Darby," to engage in a student voice session. Today was the first of these sessions with our brand new Global Citizenship class (our student leaders). The students were also able to present their idea for a winter spirit week coming up at the end of the semester. We are so proud of these student leaders and so grateful we have a team that stresses the importance of student voice
