Akron's first grammar school/high school building (at Mill, between Prospect and Summit streets) was used from 1847 to 1853. It was a dwelling house which was fixed up for a grammar school/high school. In 1853 Jennings School – a new two-story brick high school – was built on this site for $9,250.
North High School was originally located at what is now Jennings Middle School. In 1931 the present North High School was built on Gorge Boulevard and housed students in grades 10-12.
Completion of the building was delayed 24 years because of the depression and two wars. In 1955 an auditorium, cafeteria and gymnasium were added. In 1970 a vocational wing was added. The school expanded to serve grades 9-12 in September 1972.
The old building has beautiful art deco tilework on its exterior. The tilework is both decorative and pictorial: a decorative theme of brightly colored neighbors and stylized flowers and images of pre-industrial humans depicted in industrious scenes.
