New Haven High School (NHHS) is a public high school located in New Haven, Missouri, a town with a population of just over 2,000 people located west of St. Louis. Serving approximately 165 students in grades 9-12, NHHS emphasizes a solid foundation with equality for all. The stability and experience of the staff, combined with the tradition of excellence established by earlier generations of students and teachers, has allowed the school to focus on consistency, accountability, and high expectations. Small class sizes, a rigorous grading scale, and a stable homework policy ensure responsibility and high achievement.

Earning the Distinction in Performance award from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for seven consecutive years, NHHS consistently demonstrates academic ability well above state averages. With college and career readiness in mind, students at NHHS have the opportunity to choose from ten courses offered for college credit as well as the opportunity to attend the Four Rivers Career Center located in neighboring Washington, Missouri. Rooted in tradition, yet driven forward, NHHS continues to develop itself professionally by incorporating instructional technology and emphasizing current state standards. Graduates from NHHS have established successful careers in education, engineering, medicine, and a variety of other fields. Often, they return to the area to continue the tradition of excellence by supporting the school through a variety of ways. The community, in addition to the faculty and students, takes responsibility for the learning and success at New Haven High School.
