North Henderson High School is a public high school located in Hendersonville, North Carolina. It is one of four public high schools located in Henderson County. North Henderson was founded in 1993, as the majority of students were moved from the now closed Edneyville High School. North is located adjacent to Apple Valley Middle school which inherited the vast majority of their students from Edneyville Junior High. As of 2016, North Henderson had 1,023 students enrolled and 64 teachers on staff.[2] The school mascot is a Knight, and the school colors are purple and gold.

This section may be confusing or unclear to readers. (June 2020)

In this 1993, the Hendersonville City School System merged with the Henderson County Schools to form the Henderson County School System.[3] Many alumni of Edneyville High School fought to bring the name and mascot of the school to the new facility to no avail. (The current site of Edneyville High School is now the home of the Justice Academy, a North Carolina law enforcement training center.) While the Edneyville Yellow Jackets name only remains with the community elementary school, the awards, banners, and trophies from the high school are on display at North Henderson.

In 2013, the Henderson County Education History Initiative held a fundraiser to raise funds to memorialize the former Edneyville High School site. The Edneyville Initiative was spearheaded by former Edneyville and North Henderson teachers Rosemary Pace and Nancy Edwards.[4]

North Henderson’s first, and longest tenured, principal was Charles Edward Thomas, who was also the last serving principal of Edneyville High School (19861993). The school held a student body vote for the school mascot, with the Knights winning the tally. Thomas drove to Lightfoot, Virginia to haul in an enormous Knight that still sits in the school’s Commons Area.

The current principal of North Henderson High School is Dr. John Shepard.
