A classically designed new high school facility, the new Plymouth North High School draws inspiration from the federal design of the Nathaniel Morton School, the former Plymouth High School.

The Plymouth North High School will be the first LEED certified Platinum high school designed in New England and is designed to operate as a net zero facility, generating all of its own energy. It is one of only three such high schools in the country.
The Gymnasium and Auditorium entry lobby contains an area for concessions and ticket sales. The lobby also serves as a secondary entry for student arrival in the morning, where students can access local news shows on LCD screens and receive up to date weather and information from the interactive sustainable kiosk.
A comprehensive applied technology lab which includes a 21st Century robotics lab with full metal fabrication, electronics, and wood fabrication facilities.
The creative and innovative use of inexpensive masonry materials in a way that provides the appearance of granite, limestone, and sandstone, give the building a rich appearance. The interior woodwork used throughout is a veneer plywood, modularly designed, and manufactured and preassembled off site to help reduce cost, and reduce installation time.
Extensive site analysis, including wind studies and solar modeling, was performed to ensure the most sustainable, energy efficient facility which included 100kW photovoltaic array, gray water collection system, electrical car charging stations in the parking lot, interactive sustainable design kiosks at the entry lobbies, day lighting in all classrooms, green roof, solar demonstration system, and displacement ventilation.
