Welcome polars!

Did you know, the North Community High Alumni Association was formed in 1891 by the first graduating class of North High School. We are a part of North’s past looking to North’s future!

North students and alumni proudly refer to themselves as the “Polars”. North Community High School, or simply Minneapolis North, is a four-year comprehensive public high school located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. The school has existed for over 120 years in several buildings all located on the North Side of Minneapolis.

Today, the North Alumni Association supports the school and students in many ways:

  • Provides scholarship awards for NHS seniors as they graduate NHS and attend post-secondary schools.
  • Assist NHS Alumni in planning class reunions/locating class reunion contacts.
  • Sells Polar shirts and other memorabilia.
  • Supports the school with funds for various projects and needed items. 
  • Assist classes/individuals who wish to make donations to the school/scholarships to NHS students.  
  • Maintains historical records of classes including yearbooks, commencement programs, etc. 


Donations support NCHS students.
