North Side High School is a secondary school in the Fort Wayne Community Schools system, serving the north central neighborhoods of Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States.



Established 1927, North Side High School is dedicated to giving the best education available. Recently, it has had a massive renovation to accommodate the growing number of students expected to attend in coming years. The North Side High School Gym was home to the Fort Wayne Pistons of the Basketball Association of America (later the National Basketball Association) from 1948 to 1952.


The men's basketball team were the 2005-2006 Summit Athletic Conference Champions and star guard Eshaunte "Bear" Jones was an Indiana Junior All-Star. The following season, Jones was an Indiana Senior All-Star, wearing #10 in a pair of wins over Kentucky in the state's annual games. In 2008, Justin Jordan was an Indiana Junior All-Star before becoming an Indiana Senior All-Star in 2009. In 2010, an unlikely Redskin team, with a losing record, topped Marion to win Class 4A Sectional #6 for their first Sectional title since 2005.

The men's Cross Country team is notable and has won many awards including the SAC (Summit Athletic Conference) Championship in 2008. They most recently qualified for the Indiana State finals competition in 2008 in Terre Haute; the first time since 1969 that the Redskins have qualified in Cross Country.[citation needed]

North Side's marching band, the North Side Marching Redskins, has been especially successful since its inception in the 1920s. Recently, the band captured 4th place in the ISSMA State finals competition in 2008 competing in ISSMA class B. [1]
