Niles North High School opened in fall of 1964, and averages a student population of over 2,000 per year.

Niles Township High School District 219 was recognized as the number one arts education program in the nation in 2007 by the Kennedy Center Alliance for Arts Education and the National School Boards Association.

In 2014, Niles North celebrated 50 years of excellence in education.  It wasn't just a one weekend of celebration, but a yearlong occasion - alums participated in the spring musical "Hairspray" (over 30 alumni in cast/crew), they shared their knowledge with students during Ask the Expert career exploration days, and a Distinguished Alumna returned to share her story during the Awards of Distinction.  Alumni demonstrated with pride that "Once a Viking, Always a Viking," as they generously gave of their time, and money, to their high school.  Thank you to all the alumni who celebrated the 50th anniversary with Niles North.

Niles North Vikettes are turning 50!!!

In October of 1968 the “Vikingettes” made their first HOMECOMING appearance and this September will mark the Niles North Vikettes’ 50th anniversary performance.

We are going to celebrate by performing at half-time of the Niles North Homecoming football game on Friday, September 7th, 2018.

This will be a great opportunity to get reacquainted and reminisce with your former squad members, have fun, and perform in front of your family and friends. We hope you will be as excited as we are about this tremendous opportunity!!!

We will perform the School Song prior to the start of the Varsity Football Game.

At half time of the game we will perform the Dances of the Decades with a routine from each decade…

70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s, 10’s and conclude with a kick line!

We will also celebrate under the Alumni Tent and have a private party Thursday night, Sept. 6th to view videos of past performances and reminisce with former squad members.
