Sheboygan North High School, is a high school in Sheboygan, Wisconsin operated by the Sheboygan Area School District. The school opened in 1938 in what is now Urban Middle School on the city's north side, with the current building opening just northeast of Urban in 1961; the 1938 facility had been designed originally as a north side junior high school as a complement to the South Side Junior High School (the current-day Farnsworth Middle School), but during building was converted to a senior high school in the midst of Sheboygan's population at the time growing to the north.

The building has undergone many expansions, with the newest one in 2006, when a cafeteria, commons area, expanded facilities for indoor athletics, and currently unutilized space for future use were added. The weight room is the second largest publicly funded weight room in the state, after that of the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

The North High team is the Golden Raiders, represented by a Viking mascot resembling the Minnesota Vikings logo with differing coloring, with the school colors being royal blue and gold. The school newspaper is North Star, and the yearbook the Polaris. The school's rival is Sheboygan South High School.

Athletics[edit]

The school participated in the Fox River Valley Conference from the school's opening in 1938 until the 2007-08 school year, when the WIAA realigned the state's athletic conferences, placing North in the Fox River Classic Conference.

North High teams include gymnastics, basketball, soccer, track, volleyball, tennis, golf, baseball, softball, football, cross county, trap, swimming, hockey, and wrestling.
