Fort Zumwalt North High School, the first high school established in its Fort Zumwalt School District, is located in O'Fallon, Missouri. Established in 1960[1] as Fort Zumwalt High School, the school moved to its current location in 1976. "North" was added to the school's name when the district's second high school opened in 1987.

History[edit]

The district's high school students attended Wentzville or Saint Charles schools until 1960, when a standalone two-wing high school was built for grades 9–12 at Sonderen Street. In 1967, another wing and a major wing addition were added.[4] After the 1975–1976 school year, the high school swapped addresses with Cool Springs Junior High School, on Cool Springs Road (later renamed Tom Ginnever Avenue). The relocated Cool Springs school then took on the name Central Junior High (and since 1987, North Middle School).[5]

Football[edit]

Fort Zumwalt North's 2015–16 football team was undefeated until a postseason game against Battle High School, for an 11–1 overall record.[6] The 2014–15 football season was very similar with a 10–2 overall record.[7] FZ North had a 12–2 overall record in 2016–17, including a win over Battle.[8]
