Welcome to North State Independence High School!

We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit the North State Independence High School website.  Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer.
North State Independence High School is a WASC accredited alternative school of choice designed to meet the individual needs of students that for some reason are not being met at the comprehensive sites. Students are offered flexibility with their schedules while being held to the same high academic standards as the comprehensive high schools. NSIHS allows co-enrollment in the community college, CTE (Career & Technical Education) classes, on-line courses, and at the comprehensive sites on a space-available basis.

The NSIHS staff design an Individualized Graduation Plan for each student. NSIHS students, in addition to meeting at least once per week with their primary instructor, may also attend tutorial classes in all subjects in need as required by their Individualized Graduation Plan. Math labs are available as well as a senior transition class. Medical Independent Study, a program for students with prescriptions not able to attend school, and Cal-SAFE, a program for pregnant and parenting students, are also offered through NSIHS.
