On an annual basis since 1995 the mission and vision of Northmont Schools has been reviewed and articulated by our Strategic Planning Team.
Composed of twenty-five community members and staff, the Strategic
Planning Team identifies strategies that guide the direction of the
school district. With the help of additional fifteen member Action
Planing Teams, each strategy for our success has been delineated and
presented to the Board of Education for approval.
Northmont Schools offers a Leadership Academy for
employees seeking additional information about the various skills and
knowledge required in administering the district. The two year mentor
program provides participants time to reflect and learn from current
members of the Northmont administrative team.
Since 1991 through the Roll of Recognition
program, Northmont Schools annually identifies and recognizes
individuals who contribute time, effort, and commitment in exemplary
ways directly to or in benefit of the Northmont School system and
community. Three separate categories were formed to recognize an
alumnus, community member, and educator. Since the inception, the Roll of Recognition
has become known as the hallmark award of the Northmont Community.
Each year an induction ceremony, in conjunction with the Northmont
graduation ceremonies, is held to recognize each new class of
Northmont City Schools’ heritage of excellence has been recognized with an EXCELLENT rating for over ten years in a row on the Ohio Department of Education Report Card. The Northmont City School District was formed over 50 years ago with the consolidation of Phillipsburg, Randolph, and Clayton districts in 1957. 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 of the northwest part of Montgomery County and small portions of Darke and Miami Counties. It is adjacent to and north of the city of Dayton.
At present the district includes six elementary schools, one middle school and one high school and currently serves approximately 5,600 students with 100% of the teaching staff rated highly qualified by the Ohio Department of Education.
Most of the people residing in the Northmont City School District have earned their livelihood in the industries and businesses of Dayton and Wright Patterson Air Force Base. While farming exists in the area, it is usually performed on a large scale. The socio-economic level of the community, which changed rapidly from largely rural make-up to a preponderance of suburbanites, has been average and above.
