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.

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.

Starting with the 2018-2019 school year, every 2nd-12th grade student will have an iPad assigned to them to use during the school day. Grades 6th-12th will be taking them home. Our Kindergarten and 1st grade students will have enough iPads in all classrooms for each student.

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 opportunity 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/April, there is another professional development day that is used to help our staff learn and grow.

Facility Information
Northmont takes pride in the highly maintained condition of our 11 facilities with over 723,000 square feet of building space along with 196 acres. Our new OFCC facilities have earned a LEED rating of Silver, and we are currently in the process of becoming a Green Certified school district. We have a great partnership with our community athletic feeder programs where they utilize district playing fields and gymnasiums to hold practices and events. 
We received confirmation that all of our buildings were approved to be Green Business Certified. We achieved this rating based on completing several checklists on various areas that outline our commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability through the processes and procedures we have in place. Another part of the program that we have signed up for is the Bring Your Green Challenge.  This is a friendly competition between businesses and schools in the Dayton area that requires tracking of energy, water, waste, and employee engagement and could possibly result in some awards based on the goals met throughout the year-long challenge. We will be attending a press conference on where we will be recognized along with other businesses and schools in the area for being awarded the Green Business Certification. The anticipated outcome of becoming Green Certified along with the Bring Your Green Challenge is that we as a district are doing our part for the environment, educating our students and employees on sustainability, and achieving cost savings through additional rebates and tracking our district’s consumption of supplies and utilities.
