Through rigorous academics, well-rounded extra-curricular activities, competitive athletic programs, study abroad opportunities and its own diverse student body, North Atlanta High School (NAHS) prepares students to engage in the wider world that awaits them upon graduation.  NAHS offers the oldest International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme in the southeast.  The IB Programme is widely regarded as the most rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum in the world.

    This student body is comprised of students who attended six neighborhood elementary schools - Bolton Academy, Morris Brandon, Garden Hills, Warren T.Jackson, E. Rivers and Sarah Smith - and Sutton Middle School, all of which offer the IB curriculum as well. The North Atlanta community is one of the few in the United States to offer a comprehensive IB experience from Kindergarten through 12th grade.


    NAHS graduates reflect this high level of performance and achievement. It benefits from a strong legacy in global studies and the arts.  The school was formed in 1991 through the merger of North Fulton High School and Northside High School.  North Fulton implemented the IB Programme in1982, while Northside long served as a district-wide magnet program for the performing arts that enjoyed national acclaim.
