Did you know that New London High School offers a wealth of concurrent enrollment courses? Our students are graduating with college credits before ever stepping foot on a college campus.
A recent report by the Iowa Department of Education shows that "[o]ut of the 17,508 high school students from the class of 2011 who earned college credit in high school, 75.5 percent enrolled in college immediately after graduating, and of those, 59.1 percent achieved a degree within 8 years. In comparison, 50.4 percent of students who did not earn college credit in high school immediately enrolled in college. Of those, 32.8 percent completed a degree or transferred during the same time frame."
Of this year's 2022 graduating class, we are estimating that 89% of our students will be leaving with at least some college credit--this includes credits in the trades; for example, New London teachers offer both technical writing and carpentry for college credit. We also send students to the SCC campus for additional training. The 11% not receiving college credit are also in intense training programs for life after high school.
ATTN PARENTS - Does your child need a dedicated space to complete homework? We have 6 adjustable height, uniquely shaped desks that are in great shape. Rather than have them sit in storage, we are offering them at no cost to benefit our students. They are located on the northwest side of the old tennis court and are available on a first come, first served basis. ... See MoreSee Less
While Chayce was picking out an afternoon snack, the rest of Mrs. Wenger's 3rd Graders were examining crayfish/crawdads. The class is getting ready to turn their scientific attention to turtles, caterpillars, stray cats and maybe even a manatee or two, it's hard telling what Mrs. Wenger will find at a Garage Sale or Goodwill (honestly she can find anything). ...
