Students in Science Class


Perhaps one of the most defining characteristics of a Northfield High School education is the excellent academic programming.

Designed to meet the varied interests of our learners, the course curriculum at Northfield High School will challenge students to reach their full potential at every opportunity. Students at Northfield High School choose from a wide array of courses, including art, business, English, family and consumer science, industrial technology, math, music, physical education, science, social studies, wellness and world languages (Chinese, French, German and Spanish). We offer 10 honors/advanced courses and 16 Advanced Placement courses, and our art and music programs have a longstanding tradition of distinction.

Regardless of your child’s passions, we’re confident that our programs will engage him or her in a rewarding academic journey. Understanding that each child has a unique goal for his or her education, Northfield High School offers a full range of subject material. Our teachers and counselors are well prepared to guide students down a variety of different paths and Family Access – Northfield High School’s online information portal – provides up-to-date information about your child’s progress in the classroom, including:

  • A detailed schedule of your child’s day (including grades and assignments).
  • Contact information for teachers.
  • Daily attendance records.

The Instructional Services Department is responsible for overseeing and supporting the K-12 curriculum that is implemented in every content area and in every grade level. Teams of dedicated teacher leaders work together to complete a formal review of each content area, studying trends and issues in the content area, identifying best-practice instructional strategies, conducting a needs assessment for our district, creating the curriculum frameworks that identify the content addressed at each grade level, developing formative and summative assessments that address expected outcomes, and identifying resources/materials that best support teaching the skills students are expected to learn.

Our Curriculum
