On Monday, October 17, 2016, our STEM Academy received an amazing donation from former Greeley Mayor Tom Norton! Mayor Norton had the option to donate leftover campaign funds to a local charity,and he picked NHS!
The over $19,000.00 donation was used within our STEM Academy to offer new applied STEM courses, and continue to provide appropriate experiences within work based learning opportunities.
Northridge High School opened in August 2000 as District 6's third comprehensive high school. We currently serve around 1200 students in grades 9-12.
