Columbus International High School is a public high school located on the north side of Columbus, Ohio at 100 Arcadia Avenue. Originally called North High School, it was a part of the then Columbus Public School district, now Columbus City Schools. It was closed in June 1979 due to declining enrollment, but was re-opened in 2012, housing grades 7-12.
In December 1921, the Columbus Board of Education purchased a thirteen-acre tract of land on Arcadia Ave., which included the old Columbus Sewer Pipe Factory, for $39,000. Famed architect, Frank Packard designed the building, of Tudor Revival architecture, costing approximately $1,000,000. Construction began in 1923 and the building opened on September 2, 1924. It graduated its first class in January 1925.
After North High School was closed, it was later turned into an adult education center, which ended after the 2005-2006 school year. Starting the 2006-2007 school year it was reopened as a high school, this time as a temporary location for other high schools in the district while they were being renovated. From August 2006 until December 2008 the old North building was used by East High School as a remote school site while East was being completely renovated. East returned to their own building in January 2009. Beginning in August 2009 Linden-McKinley High School took residence while their building was renovated.
North High School won the first state Ohio High School Athletic Association track and field championship shortly after the formation of the association. The school also had an undefeated football season in 1918 under Coach Errett Selby.
