Madisonville North Hopkins High School

Madisonville North Hopkins High School (MNHHS) opened in Madisonville, Kentucky in fall 1968. The school, located on Hanson Road, replaced the old Madisonville High School. Classes had graduated from the Spring Street facility from 1939 to 1968. The building now houses Browning Springs Middle School. MNHHS is one of two high schools in the Hopkins County school district, the other being Hopkins County Central High School, with which MNHHS has a heated rivalry.

The Madisonville North Hopkins Maroon "powerlifting" team has won the AAA state championship for 4 years, however, it is not a KHSAA sponsored sport.

The Future Problem Solving team won the international championship in 2006 and 2007. The Academic Team has won District 5 and Region 2 for the past 6 years, placed 2nd at State in 2006, and placed 3rd at state in 2007.

The Madisonville North Hopkins Maroon cheerleaders were the 2009 KAPOS Small Varsity State Champions.

The school recently added an Archery Team in 2012. The team will compete against the surrounding counties, KHSAA does not recognize this as a sponsored sport, much like the Powerlifting team.
