About The Viking Foundation
The Viking Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization formed to support the students and schools of the North Shore School District. The Foundation was established in 1995 by residents of the North Shore School District to preserve and enrich excellence in the educational experience of our community. It relies solely on the incremental financial support of business leaders and residents of the North Shore area.
Witnessing the current need for support within the community, the Viking Foundation is expanding its vision and commitment to the North Shore School District, as demonstrated by the inspired effort of our current campaign goals and our plan to bring this to fruition. The Viking Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors made up of residents of the communities within the North Shore School District and from North Shore High School parents and alumni. The Foundation works closely with and seeks advice from the North Shore School Board of Education and from residents of the communities that comprise the District.
The District is comprised of Glen Head Elementary School, Glenwood Landing Elementary School, Sea Cliff Elementary School, North Shore Middle School and North Shore High School. These five schools create a dynamic educational community with a rich mix of students whose academic performance is consistently high, enabling the District to maintain a position as one of the strongest public school systems in the nation.
