Devils Lake High School is a public high school located in Devils Lake, North Dakota. It is part of the Devils Lake Public Schools. The athletic teams are known as the "The Firebirds". The principal is Ryan Hanson.
The high school received national attention in 2002 over its controversial nickname, the Satans. Several parents refused to send their children to the school due to this nickname. In 2003, a poll was conducted of the school's students to pick a new, less controversial nickname. The winning name was the Blaze but the school board, thinking it was a drug reference, rejected it and chose the Firebirds.
