Welcome to the Northfield High School Multi-Intensive program. Multi-Intensive center based classrooms provide a functional approach to academics and life skills for students it serves. Programming provides students with opportunities to develop academic, social and transition competencies essential to becoming productive citizens of their communities. Students are taught lifelong skills that will maximize the potential to live, work and participate within society.

As parents, your support and input are critical to our success. It is our hope that you always feel valued and welcomed in our learning community. Together, as partners in your child's education, they will have greater success in achieving their goals. If you have any feedback, please don't hesitate in reaching out directly to me directly: Will Kocher or anomalously here.


We are off to a great start for the 2016-17 school year. Our students have quickly adapted to the new schedule and routines and are settling in to the work.

Each morning our students celebrate each other with shout-outs and celebrations, recognizing grit, perseverance, empathy and kindness and we celebrate each student for their individuality and unique gifts. We try to capture each student a few time a week, be sure to ask your child if they have been given a shout-out.

Growth Mindset

In the MI classroom we have adopted the Yetti as our symbol for growth mindset and it is essential to our development as a community.

“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment,” Students who embrace growth mindsets—the belief that they can learn more or become smarter if they work hard and persevere—may learn more, learn it more quickly, and view challenges and failures as opportunities to improve their learning and skills.

When your child says they can't do something, stop them and tell them that they can't do it YET!
