WELCOME


Welcome to Northport Elementary/Middle/High School! The faculty, staff and administration hope that the time you spend here will be educational and rewarding. This handbook is for you. It will help you understand the operations of the school as well as your rights and responsibilities as an employee, student and/or as families.

About Us… Northport staff and students have a unique and stimulating approach to education.  We are proud of our schools and wish to share with you our special qualities, programs and attractions!

With a population of around 350, Northport is a friendly, culturally diverse town with a rich history of people who work hard, support their schools, and take a keen interest in their children.  With its affordable cost of living and low crime rate, Northport offers a delightful place to live, work, and raise a family.



Northport is a rural district, of an average of 160 students.  Although we are remote from population centers, our public schools are innovative.  Our single P-12 campus offers smaller than average class sizes, opportunities for cross-age tutoring, integrated P-12 curricula and collegial sharing among staff.

The district campus includes two schools (P-8 and 9-12) as well as a shop complex, 2 computer labs, special education suite and a gymnasium.  The district employs 48 full and part-time people including 14 teachers, 1 superintendent, 1 preK-12 principal, and 23 support staff as well as a part-time psychologist, counselor, nurse, physical therapist, and speech and language pathologist. 

Our students are unique; non-generic!  They are small town kids who are accepting of individual differences, non-cliquish and enthusiastic. 

Members of our community, board of directors, administrators and faculty have been working collaboratively to institute changes that have led to a progressive school system that enjoys higher academic success and strives to maximize individual potential.   Much of the success is attributed to the establishment of a clear and shared focus, adoption and implementation of research-based curriculum and professional training.

Our teachers have received training in some of the most promising and exemplary curriculum materials and effective practices available.  Our support staff has also been an integral part of our improvement efforts, participating in in-services that strengthen their skills, as well.  Together our teachers and support staff operate much like a family would. 

Recently the Northport School District received two top awards/honors related to increasing academic achievement over the past six years. The School of Distinction Award is a state award and the Blue Ribbon and the US News and World Report Bronze Awards are national awards. As one can see, our Board of Directors, administration, staff and students believe in themselves and one another and demonstrate exemplary qualities by setting and achieving high goals.



Our facilities have improved along with our curriculum and achievement.  We have been fortunate to pass tax levies over the past few years as well as a bond to remodel the high school. We were so proud to unveil our newly remodeled high school fall of 2005, which has proven to enhance students’ education. In addition, through an E-Rate grant, we upgraded our district’s computer system to a state-of-the-art Internet Protocol telephony network that runs over fiber optic lines and is wireless. Strategically, we have given our other buildings and grounds a facelift as we replaced lighting, flooring, lockers, bleachers and other worn essentials as well as repainted the interior and exteriors.  Moreover, we have improved ball fields and landscaping with the help of our community.
