New Philadelphia High School
Imagine the possibilities at New Philadelphia High School, an organization that blends the traditions of the past with a commitment to excellence for the future. New Philadelphia High School (NPHS) is an institution that currently offers 17 Advanced Placement courses. This past school year, 176 students were enrolled in AP coursework, sitting for 359 Advanced Placement exams. In addition, NPHS offers students an opportunity to become part of a four tiered pre-engineering program called, “Project Lead The Way,” which blends the skill sets learned in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Students can earn college credit, while still in high school, through these two programs as well as through our dual enrollment program and post-secondary program with Kent State University. Students at NPHS can explore the visual and performing arts both during and outside the typical school day by engaging in band, steel band, or guitar; in one of our five choir groups; four levels of visual art classes; the fall play; and/or, the spring musical.
The faculty and staff at New Philadelphia High School congratulate the Class of 2016 for being awarded over $2,800,000.00 in scholarships; and, we look forward to preparing our current students to achieve their dreams and goals. The Quaker Foundation continues to support our seniors giving 77 scholarships totaling $114,000. They also continue to give over $15,000 in classroom grants to teachers across the district.
New Philadelphia High School has a total student population of 865 students in grades 9 – 12. The student to staff ratio is approximately 16:1 at NPHS. Students at NPHS may elect to attend vocational training at the Buckeye Career Center during grades 11 and 12. NPHS offers students a “credit recovery” and a “credit acceleration” program called “Opportunity School” that features a “Blended” instructional delivery method combing both traditional and online instruction.
