Welcome from Holly Owens, Principal

Welcome to North City School!  We are so pleased and honored to serve your child. Our major focus each year is for your child feel safe while reaching his/her full potential academically and socially. Each child is unique and deserves an education designed for success!  We are excited about the many activities and programs that will be part of your child’s academic year. By making school a priority, we will see great growth in this school year. I would like to extend an open invitation for parents and family members to visit our school, attend our school programs, and become an active member of our PTO.
