New Hartford Senior High: Excellence, Integrity, Citizenship, and Innovation

New Hartford Senior High students are at the center of the district's vision of creating an innovative community of lifelong learners who, under the guidance and leadership of truly outstanding faculty and staff, strive endlessly to work towards New Hartford's core values: excellence, integrity, citizenship, and innovation. A two-time National Blue Ribbon School, New Hartford Senior High recognizes students for their constant drive to seize the opportunities available in their school and community and challenge themselves to find success.

Aside from an array of core class offerings, students have the opportunity to learn more about their interests through various electives offered in almost all subject areas. Students also have the option of exploring career and technical training in numerous fields, and often take advantage of dual credit courses offered in conjunction with a local community college. This year marked our first cohort of students to earn the New York State Seal of Biliteracy, recognizing their high levels of proficiency in English and another world language. Outside of the classroom, our students continually excel in the fine arts, performing arts, and on the athletic field, earning multiple accolades each year.

The school is backed by the support of community members and families, as well as a staff of remarkably caring and dedicated individuals. New Hartford students pride themselves on the work they do each day to make their school and community a place of growth, acceptance, and achievement. Embracing the core values listed above, we are proud to be New Hartford Spartans!
