The community shows their "Quaker Pride" in their continued support of the school district. The renovation of New Philadelphia High School took place in 1992, updating the school into a state of the art facility. In addition, twenty-four new classrooms, computer labs, science labs, and a large computer-accessed library were added at that time and the original 1913 structure was completely remodeled.
The district serves approximately 3,000 students K-12, enrolled in five K-5 elementary buildings, one 6-8 middle school, and one 9-12 comprehensive high school.
