In September 1956, Manchester High School and Hampstead High School were consolidated into a new school, to be called North Carroll High School, in Greenmount. The school had 437 students and 20 faculty, and its first graduating class contained 79 students. At that time, the school colors were red and gray.

It has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools since 1960.

In 1962, the school had its name changed to "North Carroll Junior-Senior High School", due to the addition of 7th and 8th grade classes, for whom an additional facility was constructed.

Further expansion in the 1970s led to the construction of another new building in the current location near Hampstead, Maryland. 860 high school students and 45 staff members to the new building, the opening of which coincided with the name returning to North Carroll High School. This was also when the current school colors were established.

In 1985 an agriculture classroom and shop were added and the greenhouse relocated. In 2007 the shop closed and was replaced with an attendance room.

North Carroll High School celebrated its 50th anniversary during the 2006–2007 school year. Currently, North Carroll High School's student body has exceeded 1,800 students.

The student body of the school was recently split in the 2008-2009 school year. This split was due to over-population in the school. About 5-10 new portables were added to the school's campus to fit all the students into classes. The Board of Education had drawn out new boundaries for the school. They split the line between Manchester, a surrounding town, and Hampstead. The population of both these towns used to attend North Carroll High School and even a select few in a third town called Finksburg. This was the cause of the continuous rise of population in the school.

The senior class of North Carroll High School was allowed to stay at the school but the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior students who violated the new boundary line were sent to the new high school, Manchester Valley High School, located in Manchester, Maryland. The new students attending Manchester Valley were to have a part in voting for the school's mascot and school colors.


The school has an annual homecoming for the students and alumni. Usually taking place in October there is a football game set up against an opposing team taking place on a Friday night. The next day there is a homecoming dance for all students and one date/guest of their choice to attend. The dance takes place in the main gym with surrounding decorations and a hired DJ. Appropriate attire must be worn at all times.

Other dances include Winter Formal, Spring Fling, Bay Lady, and Prom. Bay Lady is strictly for seniors only and takes place on a boat with dinner and dancing. Prom is for Juniors and Seniors only and is chosen by the SGA (Student Government Association) but everyone's opinion counts.

Other activities the school offers are Mr./Mrs. North Carroll (a talent show students participate in), North Carroll Idol (a take off of American Idol), Flag Football Tournament, a senior class trip, Senior Class Picnic, Powder Puff (where the Junior girls play the Senior girls in flag football and the boys of the two classes are the cheerleaders) and many more.
