International BaccalaureateEdit

Millard North is one of three high schools in Omaha to carry the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and was the first in the state to offer it. Along with Millard North Middle School, Millard North High School offers the IB Middle Years Programme.[3] The only other schools in Nebraska that offer the Diploma Programme are Lincoln High School in Lincoln and Omaha Central in Omaha.

AcademiesEdit

Millard North is part of the Millard Public Schools System, which offers the Academy program for those students aspiring to a particular career after graduation. Millard North was home to the Finance Academy which started in 2009, but was ended after the 2012-13 school year. Millard North sends students to the other three Millard high schools to participate in the other academies. Currently there are five academies offered in the Millard district: Education at West; Entrepreneurship at South; and Culinary Skills, Health Sciences, and Distribution and Logistics Management at Horizon.
