Minot High School (MHS) is the public high school in Minot, North Dakota, divided between two main campuses: Magic City (grades 11-12) and Central (grades 9-10). The Magic City Campus opened in 1974 in southwest Minot, and the Central Campus occupies the 1918 high school building at 215 1st Street Southeast, just east of downtown.

Drawing its students from the city of Minot and Minot Air Force Base, MHS has one of the largest enrollments in the state.

MHS also includes two alternative campuses: Souris River Campus (for students age 16 and over) and Central Campus East (for students under 16). About 2,100 students attend the various campuses, all of which are part of the Minot Public Schools system.

Facilities[edit]

Recently JLG Architects renovated all of Minots Central High School's campus. Key issues that were addressed was the efficiency of the building, out of date building code issues and to improve the overall well being of the building's characteristics. Part of the renovation was to build a 600 seat auditorium, and a new wellness center.[1]

Athletics[edit]

The boys' athletic teams are known as the "Magicians" or "Magi", while the girls' teams are called the "Majettes". Minot is historically known as the "Magic City," in reference to rapid growth in its early railroad days. The school's mascot is a magician and the varsity teams compete against the largest high schools in the state in Class A (Class AAA for football, see North Dakota High School Activities Association).
