Message from the Principal

It is truly an honor to serve as the building leader for DEKALB HIGH SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY NORTH. The faculty and staff take great pride in offering your children a high level of Career Technical Education that will prepare them for future success. At DHST-N, we take pride in ensuring that every graduate of our program is College and Career Ready. We do this through the use of a rigorous standards-based Career Technical Education curriculum that offers hands-on learning opportunities at every turn. Students that come to DHST-N can expect to be academically challenged through the curriculum and through leadership opportunities in their respective Career Technology Student Organizations (CTSOs). Our Center encompasses several programs that are industry-certified and nationally recognized. These accolades have not gone unnoticed as we’ve also formed many collaborative partnerships with employers that often lead to job placement for our graduates.

Students and families can expect a safe, nurturing hands-on learning environment with a strong emphasis on academic achievement. We take great pride in housing DHST-N at Cross Keys High School and are grateful for the collaborative relationships we have with our feeder schools. 

We are appreciative that families entrust us with the opportunity to educate the children in our communities. Please feel free to contact us anytime or stop by for a visit of our award winning career center. Thank you for considering DEKALB HIGH SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY NORTH. I can’t wait to welcome and meet you and your family!
