The design of the school accommodates ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCOST PER SQ FT$132.00FEATURED IN2007 Educational InteriorsINTERIOR CATEGORYCommon AreasSUB CATEGORYSpecialized district’s school-within-a-school vision. The architect created a two-story educational wing that houses a majority of the school’s traditional class offerings. Within this wing, the ninth and 10th grades are on the second floor, and 11th and 12th grades reside on the ground floor. This distinction emphasizes the focus on required academic classes for graduation for ninth and 10th grades. The upper-class grades are on the ground floor because they comprise the majority of students who take advanced career and technology classes.

North Point is unique in that it offers career and technology programs along with the traditional and advanced high school offerings. This blend of educational philosophies creates a learning environment that has never before been attempted in the state of Maryland.
