Welcome to North High School, Home of the North Torrance Saxons!

Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment Lottery - TUSD Residents School Selection Applications.
Open Enrollment is for Torrance residents who want to transfer to different Torrance schools.

Per Ed Code 35160.5b, Torrance Unified School District established a policy allowing Parents/Guardians who live within the Torrance Unified School District boundaries to apply to have their children attend a school other than their home school. Once a year, during a specific period of time, applications are accepted for the following school year. Once the procedure is complete, the Open Enrollment school becomes the permanent home school for that student.

Not Sure What North High School's Policies Are? 2018-19 NHS Attendance and Discipline Policies


Since 2000, the Visions of Unity Contest has encouraged Torrance youth to reflect on their role in resolving critical community issues, to artistically express their unique ideas and ideals in a way that broadens minds and touches hearts, and to take initiative in enhancing unity among diverse groups within their community.

The Visions of Unity contest is open only to students attending the high schools in Torrance, California.

Share your vision of unity, to inspire your peers, see your work published, earn a cash award, and receive public honor among leaders, elected officials, and community. Open only to high school students in Torrance, California. The Visions of Unity contest was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, whose birthday comes on or near the contest's deadline every year. Now in its 20th year, the contest continues to engage youth, their families, community leaders, education 'providers, sponsors and donors in the power of artistic expression to cross cultural boundaries and forge new bonds as members of one human family, to explore ways individuals can work together to cultivate greater healing, harmony, and understanding within their communities.

Contest Categories - Literature: Poetry, Essay, and Short Story
Visual Arts: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture, and Computer Graphics
