North Putnam High School was occupied in 1969. It sits on a 118 acre site that is shared with the middle school. Major renovation of outdoor facilities was undertaken in 1992 during the middle school construction. The air-conditioned building contains 36 classrooms, an auditorium/large-group instruction room, gymnasium, media center, computer lab, band and choral facilities, cafeteria, swimming pool, greenhouse, and a TV production studio.  Outdoor physical education and athletic facilities are shared with the middle school. All corporation schools have access to an outdoor lab located on the site. A building and remodeling project was completed at the start of the 2000-2001 school year which added eight classrooms, a new TV production studio, and a new administrative area.  In addition, the industrial technology, agri-science, home economics, and student service areas were remodeled.  The student capacity of the building is 725.

Each student at North Putnam High School must complete 43 credits of high school work in grades 9-12 in order to graduate. According to corporation policy and state regulations, 27 of the 43 credits are required, while 16 are electives. In addition, the Indiana Department of Education requirements for the Core 40 Curriculum and the Academic Honors Diploma can be met at North Putnam High School.
