North Knox High School is located in Southern Indiana. It is situated atop a large hill on Ind. St. Hwy. 159 between the towns of Bicknell and Freelandville. The North Knox School Corp. came into existence in school year 1963-64, with the consolidation of all the smaller northern Knox County(Indiana) high schools to one central location. Those smalltown high schools were located at Bicknell, Freelandville, Bruceville, Oaktown, Edwardsport, Sandborn, Westphalia, and Emison. At that time, grades 1-8 remained at the smaller locations, with the exception of Edwardsport students, who were transferred to Freelandville School.

The original('63-'64) location of the NK High School was in the old Edwardsport,IN school building.. This Edwardsport building served as NK High School until the current structure on St. Hwy. 159 was opened in school year 1974-75. At this time, the original high school building at Edwardsport became NK East for grades 1-8. New structures were also opened in Bicknell and near Bruceville housing NK Central and NK West, grades 1-6.

The North Knox High School mascot name is "Warriors". The original school colors were black & white, with red being added a few years later. The current school building was based on the "open study" concept that was popular during the school's planning stages of the late 1960's. The school is all one level. North Knox is well known for its basketball teams and marching band. North Knox is known for its prestigious sized gym and for having the biggest football stadium in Knox and surrounding counties. Recently, in 2006-2007 the football field went under renovation adding a two story press box and a new team barn with "North Knox" on the top of the building and a Warrior head emblem on the front. The high school received new lockers in 2008. In 2004, the pool was filled in to create an auxiliary gym after swimming was taken out of the curriculum. The auxiliary gym now houses many activities.

The school corporation is made up of the following towns in Northern Knox County: Bruceville, Bicknell/Ragsdale, Oaktown/Emison/Busseron, Edwardsport, Freelandville, Sandborn/Westphalia. The following are the old schools mascots when each town had its own high school.

Bruceville - Hilltoppers Bicknell - Bulldogs Oaktown - Oaks Edwardsport - Powers Freelandville - Fightin' Dutch Sandborn - Bluejays Westphalia - Wildcats

(note:In the recent Bruceville/Bicknell basketball championship, Bruceville won four games in a row to reclaim the title.)
