The Mighty Norse continue to uphold the standard of excellence that was set for us so long along. As we begin our entrance into the 50th year of Northglenn High School, we press on to continue that tradition with our work. Norse Country is still the place to find amazing fine arts programs, competitive sports teams, rigorous courses and great people! We hope you'll join us.
WE ARE NORTHGLENN!
Highlights from the District Superintendent's Newsletter:
"Word is very clearly out on the street about the exciting opportunities available at Northglenn High School, as demonstrated by enrollment that is growing by leaps and bounds. In the 2011-12 school year, Northglenn's freshman class totaled 441 students. Freshman enrollment grew to 570 last fall, and this year Northglenn High School has a freshman class of 600 -- with a waiting list to boot! Parents and students tell me that part of the draw is Northglenn's STEM program, which gives students the opportunity to challenge themselves in pre-engineering and bioscience in a state-of-the-art facility, but that they are also impressed with the school-wide focus on relevant and engaging problem-based learning activities and an energetic staff that is eager to welcome their children to the school.
I've had the chance to join local political leaders, academics from higher education, and business people on panels in which we evaluate student presentations on pressing matters of public policy, such as the environmental, economic, political and legal issues related to fracking. Those industry and community members consistently tell me they are impressed by the quality of the staff and students they are observing, a conclusion which is also borne out by the school's academic performance data. Northglenn has made three consecutive years of improvement in its school performance rating assigned by the Colorado Department of Education, and is now less than five points away from earning Performance school status -- the state's highest designation."
