The Newark City Schools serves approximately 6,200 students in 11 buildings - seven elementary schools (Grades K-5), three middle schools (Grades 6-8) and one high school (Grades 9-12).
Located 30 miles east of Columbus, the Newark City Schools is the largest district in Licking County. Our licensed staff, 53 percent of whom have advanced degrees, teach challenging classes that use the latest technology as well as tried-and-true methods.
The high school offers an array of AP courses and other opportunities to prepare students for post-secondary education. Students are encouraged to participate in their choice of athletic, scholarly and fine arts activities.
Meeting the needs of the entire community is fundamental. In partnership with parents, post-secondary educational institutions and businesses, the district is shaping curriculum and instruction to ensure all students are successful. Our Special Education program delivers a full range of services to disabled students, from age three to age 21.
Residents show support for the Newark City Schools in many ways. They volunteer in our classrooms and participate in PTAs. Please see the links to the right to learn more about each of our departments, including relevant forms and information.
The business community also takes an active role in our schools by sending employees to talk about their careers or teach a lesson in personal finance.
