District

District Vision:  Our mission is to cultivate a highly-qualified staff that provides rigorous, differentiated instruction to challenge and ignite the potential of each student's educational path.  The school and community at large, in a safe and secure environment, will share the responsibility of developing life-long learners, equipped for success in a global society.

The School District

Northville Central is a small central district governed by a five-member elected school board, each member serving a term of five years.

School enrollment is approximately 450 students in grades Pre-K through grade 12. All students are housed in a single building. The district has completed a number of capital projects which have enlarged and modernized its facilities.

The District is organized as: PreK-5 Elementary School, 6-8 Middle School, and 9-12 High School. Emphasis is on mastery of essential academic content and skills.

Staffing includes three administrators, fifty-one teachers, and thirty-eight support staff employees.

A continuum of services provide varied educational opportunities for students of all abilities. Association with the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) provides access to programs on a regional level. Qualified seniors are eligible for early admissions to the local community college (FMCC).


Educational Philosophy

The mission of the Northville Central School District is to assure that all students acquire knowledge and develop the skills and work habits to enable them to become productive members of society. The Board of Education of the Northville Central School District is dedicated to educating students to understand and appreciate the rights and responsibilities of American citizens, enabling these students to function effectively as independent individuals in a democratic society. The mission is best accomplished when school personnel maintain high expectations for all students, create a positive school climate, ensure a safe and orderly school environment, monitor students' progress on a frequent basis and promote effective home-school communication.

Students must be educated to meet many new challenges which will confront them in a world which is forever changing. With each student, individual potential and the desire to learn will be considered. Support Services will be provided to promote the physical, mental and emotional attributes of the student. The entire academic program will promote good work habits, self-discipline, integrity, and self-confidence.
