Athletics and activities
The Francis Howell North Knights are home to only one official athletic team state championship, the 1991 wrestling
team. The high school's newspaper, The North Star
, has also earned many national awards.
After Francis Howell High School
alone could no longer support the burgeoning population of its part of St. Charles County
in 1983, Henderson Junior High School was built on Hackmann Road on the border of the cities of St. Charles
and St. Peters
. Henderson was eventually expanded and the name was changed to Francis Howell North High School and began taking high school students in 1986. A third high school (Francis Howell Central
) was built in 1997.
A stabbing at the school on January 9, 2007 sent two teenage girls to the hospital.
