Newton Falls High School Philosophy

The staff of Newton Falls High School firmly believes in the development of the whole child, affording all necessary experiences in the physical, mental, social and spiritual life to enable the child to become a well-adjusted individual in our society.

In recognition of individual differences, a comprehensive program is provided affording each student the opportunity to choose an education pathway most conductive to the fulfillment of his/her individual needs.

Acknowledging that a Democracy's strength depends upon the summation of individual capacities and abilities to contribute to it, ample opportunities are provided in the areas of citizenship and leadership.

The staff of Newton Falls High School has the responsibility to constantly evaluate its educational program through various levels of research to insure quality education.

Newton Falls Girls Basketball is looking for volunteer coaches for their 3rd and 4th grade basketball teams.

We have lots of girls playing basketball this winter so we are in desperate need of additional volunteer coaches. These volunteers need to help to teach fundamentals, show your enthusiasm for the game, and be a good communicator with parents and staff.

Once basketball season starts approximately Monday, November 1st, High School and Junior High staff will not be able to run youth basketball practices/games everyday. We can still stop in one day a week but, there is just not enough hours in the day. With youth games starting in November, High School and Junior High coaching staff are not able to in two places at one time.

All interested should contact Head Coach Mark Baker by email at bakerm@nfschools.org or by phone at 330-872-5121 ext 1304.

JH/HS Student Handbook

For information about the school's Code of Conduct, Dress Code, Discipline Procedures, Grading Procedures, Student Use of Technology, Use of Telephones, and more, click here for the JH/HS Student Handbook

Student Tardiness to School

Students are required to be at school on time. Students arriving to school tardy will be penalized after their 3rd offense for an unexcused tardy. A student may be suspended when reaching the excessive number of tardiness. All excused tardiness are not penalized.

The Junior-Senior High School requires that parents provide the school with a written excuse for an early dismissal. Students will take the excuse to the Attendance Office (Junior High Office) when arriving at school and receive a slip to leave school at the appointed time. We ask that parents not arrive and request students be dismissed. It is a disruptive and timely issue for office personnel and teachers. No student will be dismissed during the last 30 minutes of the school day. In an emergency, a phone call informing us of your need to have your child dismissed is certainly helpful under such circumstances.


Doors Open

The Jr./Sr. High School opens its door at 7:10 AM. Doors will be opened at 7:00 AM when the weather requires the students to come in from the rain, snow or extreme cold. Students will sit in the Commons-Cafeteria until 7:10 AM. Otherwise, the students will remain on the walkways until the entry bell sounds at 7:10 AM.

N.F. Fight Song

Go Newton Falls High
Fight for victory,
With your colors flying
We will cheer you all the time.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Go Newton Falls High
Fight for victory,
Spread far the fame of our fair name.
Go you Tigers! Win that game!

FIGHT!

N.F. Alma Mater

To Newton Falls we stand and sing,
And praise to alma mater bring.
Ever will our thoughts to thee
Be pledged in love and loyalty.
Friendships true and memories dear
Will live throughout each coming year.
Fellowship within thy halls
Has bound our hearts to Newton Falls

Attendance Concerns

Parents are reminded to call in daily absences to the Attendance Office (330-872-0905). Failure to notify the school of a child's absence will result in the absence being declared "unexcused." Unexcused absences may result in the child not receiving academic credit. If the absence is extended beyond one day, it is best to provide us with that information. Our school system sends out a daily notification to parents if their child is reported absent at the start of the school day. This call is placed to the home after 10:00 AM.
