North Shore High School is located in Glen Head, New York. It opened in September 1957 and graduated its first class in June 1958. The first principal was Dr. John French.

The school is a part of the North Shore School District. As of 2006, approximately 841 students attend North Shore High School. The current principal is Albert Cousins. In 2008, Newsweek ranked North Shore as the 263rd best public school in the country.[1] North Shore's athletic teams are known as the Vikings, and have a long-time rivalry with neighboring Glen Cove High School.

Around 1988 North Shore has an "open campus" policy, where students were allowed to leave campus during lunch and other free periods so they could work on independent projects. Some community members wanted North Shore to become a "closed campus," where leaving campus was not permitted during free periods. They were concerned due to automobile and pedestrian safety and possibilities of students conducting recreational drug usage off campus.[2]
