We're going beyond to ensure that all of our students thrive: in life, in school, and in the classroom. Our goal is to empower students to achieve success and exceed their ambitious expectations.  #GoBeyond

Strategic Objectives: 
  *Create a learning experience that is rigorous and engaging for all students.

   *Raise academic achievement across State and District measures of success through a relentless focus on literacy (reading, writing, listening, speaking, thinking and viewing) across all subject areas. 

  *Facilitate student ownership of learning through personalized and differentiated instruction 



NWLSD is committed to providing our students with the academic content and the real world skills they need to succeed in life. Our students engage in learning experiences in and out of the classroom, which allows for deeper learning. When students engage in deeper learning experiences they are better able to transfer what is learned in the classroom and apply it beyond the walls of the schools.  

Educating Tomorrow’s Leaders Today. 

Thank you to all those who were a part of helping our 8th grade students see what they could be after graduating from high school. The Career Fairs at all three of our middle schools this week were a HUGE success!!!

Students in Mrs. Sherri Green's classroom at Struble Elementary are participating in our deeper learning expedition around plants. This year they are growing flowers in their shared garden!
Interested in contributing to our efforts to ensure that all NWLSD students can engage in deeper learning experiences beyond the classroom? Please consider supporting our efforts and help us spread theword! 

We have received a number of questions from our community members about the District and we want to make sure that we are available to share and to answer any questions that anyone may have. We made a commitment to be transparent in our communication and we want to be sure to honor that. One of the ways we plan to do that is to make sure we are accessible to community organizations in our area. 

Congratulations to our Colerain High School Summas: Lydia Maynus, Claire Stamper, Brady Bigner, Elia Lies, and Alexandra Zamora Gerdes! These students maintained a weighted grade point average of 4.5 or higher throughout their high school academic career while taking rigorous Advanced Placement, Career Tech, and College Credit Plus coursework!

Congratulations to Cory Thornicroft from Colerain High School on being named a National Merit Semifinalist!!

Thank you Procter & Gamble for investing in our students at CHS and NWHS! Over 70 NWLSD students learned about opportunities for mentoring, summer internships, and potential employment with P&G. Thank you also to Butler Tech for helping to connect our students through P&G Aspire.
