National Junior Honor Society:  Membership is open to 9th graders who have at least a 3.71 cumulative GPA for 7th and 8th grades, no major disciplinary problems, and a willingness to do at least 10 hours of school/community service each semester. At the beginning of the school year, qualified ninth graders will be invited to join, then inducted into the National Junior Honor Society for the school year. Honor Society also accepts into membership any student who has been a member in good standing at another school and has transferred to North. Honor Society projects vary from year to year depending on the interests of the current members. 

Science Olympiad is an extracurricular national science competition for junior and senior high school students. Students, in teams of up to fifteen, compete in as many events as possible. The students prepare for the competition either on their own or after school. All three science disciplines are included, Life, Earth and Physical. Also, there are several “build-it” events that the students do at home. Usually, North has two teams that compete every year. Over the last several years, North has won several gold, silver and bronze medals.

SnowRiders:  North has an active SnowRiders Club for alpine skiers and snowboarders. The intent of the SnowRiders Club is to provide students at North with everything from an introduction to the fantastic snowboarding and skiing that lies outside our backdoor, to opportunities to meet and race with friends from North and other junior high schools in the Treasure Valley.  We have citywide recreational ski races at Bogus Basin Ski Resort on six Saturdays during the winter. The intent of the races is to have fun and participate in skiing. There are various ski courses from beginner to expert, so all students can participate.
