The Northmont Community
Northmont City Schools continues the tradition and heritage of academic, athletic and fine arts excellence that began over 50 years ago. Northmont City Schools is the essential element that blends the municipalities of Clayton, Englewood, Union, Phillipsburg and a portion of Clay Township together into a community that supports quality education.
The district encompasses 44 square miles, includes one early learning center, five elementary schools, one middle school and one high school and serves around 5500 students. Both the Kleptz Early Learning Center (KELC) and the High School are brand new state of the art facilities. The KELC opened in 2014 and the High School moved into their new building in January of 2016. Many Northmont students attend the Miami Valley Career Technology Center to enter career paths and further their education.
To Provide students an exceptional education with diverse opportunities so they maximize their potential and are productive, responsible citizens.
Curriculum, Instruction & Technology
The district has a robust course offering catalog that will rival any in the state. We offer courses like robotics in middle school and aeronautical engineering at the high school. There are opportunities for students to earn a Robotics and/or Nurse Aide Training credential.
We believe in engaging students and have recently adopted Project Based Learning strategies district-wide to ensure students have opportunities to learn by doing, creating, and having authentic learning experiences.
We have One-to-One technology at the HS for every student and a strategy to expand to grades 2-8. Our early learners are at Two-to-One and are immersed in technology on a regular basis
College Credit Plus Offerings on HS campus are expansive. Our dedicated staff has the credentials to allow students to gain high school and college credit while still enjoying the high school experience. It is not necessary to leave the building while accumulating 20 college credits. The option to attend the nearby community college branch is an option for students wanting more credits.
Our staff has multiple opportunities for Professional Learning throughout the school year. The Professional Development Team has been expanding these opportunities and continues to look for ways to meet all of our staff's learning needs. In November, there is a two-day Fall Institute where staff has over 100 learning sessions to chose from. Many of the sessions are taught and led by our own staff. In March, there is another professional development day that is used to help our staff learn and grow.
