Westerville North High School is a public high school in Westerville, Ohio in Delaware County, Ohio. It is one of three high schools in the Westerville City School District. The school's current principal is Kurt Yancey.

Background[edit]

The high school has been open since 1975. Westerville North's colors are cardinal and gold and its mascot is a representation of a classic Roman "warrior." Students follow a moral code known as "The Warrior Way" which focuses on respecting each other, their parents, their school and their community. There are many traditions that are part of the school including Seniors painting "The Rock" and walking around the Warrior logo in the front lobby for good luck.

The high school is one of three in the Westerville school district.

Clubs and activities[edit]

The school's mock trial team is one of the most successful in Ohio. They've qualified for the state tournament for 16 straight years, and won the state championship in 2015.[2]

In the media[edit]

Westerville North has occasionally received national press attention, usually for unusual events taking place at the school. An incident involving marijuana-laced Rice Krispies treats sold at a bake sale was mentioned on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.[3] Many news networks featured a story involving Taylor Killian, a student who oiled himself down, went streaking throughout the school, and was subsequently tased twice by Westerville police officer Doug Staysniak.[4] The school was also mentioned in a March 2008 episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, after Democratic presidential candidates appeared at rallies on the same day at Westerville North and Westerville Central.

Westerville North has also received local media attention for its service to the local food bank, WARM (Westerville Area Resource Ministry).[citation needed] The school regularly raises over $20,000 each year to support local families in need of food, clothing, and gifts for the holidays.[citation needed] It also was recognized as one of Fox 28's Cool Schools. Highlights for this recognition focused on the Hydroponics program in which WNHS raises plants and herbs to donate or sell to local businesses, the show choir called the Notables, and school spirit.[citation needed]
