Grayslake North High School is a public high school located in Grayslake, Illinois and is part of Grayslake Community High School District 127. The school's enrollment is 1,557.[1]

Background[edit]

The high school was built in 2004 to lower class sizes at Grayslake Community High School (now Grayslake Central High School) on Lake Street. In the school's first year (2004-2005), it housed all of the district's ninth graders (about 700). Since then, it has housed only students north of Washington Street graduating in 2008 or later. The 2007-2008 school year was the first with all four classes represented.

Athletics[edit]

The Knights participate in the Fox Division of the Fox Valley Conference. Athletic teams for girls include tennis, cross country, and volleyball in the fall, basketball, and bowling in the winter, cheerleading and poms in fall through winter, and track and field, soccer, and softball in the spring. Boys' teams include football, soccer, curling, golf, and cross country in the fall, wrestling and basketball-coached by Todd Grunloh- in the winter, and baseball, lacrosse, tennis, and track and field in the spring. The boys lacrosse team went to the IHSLA state championship in 2011.

Other activities[edit]

2007-2008 was the first year the honors music programs of the North and Central campuses were independent from one another. The school's three academic clubs have all enjoyed considerable success at local competitions.

Math Team[edit]

Grayslake North has made it to the Illinois State Math Team competition nearly every year since 2005 (The first year that Grayslake North has had its own math team).[2]
