Mr. WhatleyPRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Dear Titan Families and Community:

On behalf of the New Town High School faculty and staff, I would like to extend deep appreciation to our community partners for their support of our students and our school.

The Titan Spirit is growing as we celebrate many accomplishments, activities, and events. New Town High School is honored to be one of six Baltimore County Public Schools selected to be included in the Magnet School Assistance Program (MSAP) Grant, and we have been awarded a new magnet school program in International Studies. We will begin offering courses in International Studies in the fall of 2018. As a designated magnet school, we will participate in the BCPS magnet schools’ application process. We invite interested student candidates to apply to our magnet program by following this link to the Baltimore County Public Schools Office of Magnet Programs. Current New Town High School students do not need to apply to participate. Over the next two years, we will begin the process of introducing new courses for our International Studies program. We are excited for this opportunity to prepare globally competitive citizens.

The Class of 2018 graduation will be held on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at SECU Arena on the campus of Towson University. Advisors, teachers, and school counselors have been working with the Class of 2018 to plan activities that will support our Titans with their preparation for graduation and their post-secondary plans. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments and our school. We look forward to continued growth and expansion of our programs that enhance and personalize students’ educational experiences. As always, we encourage parents and guardians to become active members in the New Town High School Parent Teacher Student Association. The support of our PTSA is a vital component of our school’s success. Every day is a great day to be a Titan!

Best wishes,
‚ÄčKevin L. Whatley

About US

OUR STORY

New Town High School opened its doors on Lakeside Boulevard in Owings Mills, MD in 2003. Since that time, New Town has consistently raised the level of academic rigor and increased student achievement. The school has a full-service cafeteria, a state-of-the-art 600-seat auditorium, and modern athletic facilities.

The interior of the school is based on a "main street" design with four academic wings. The academic programs are designed to promote a culture of success for our students. New Town offers 16 Advanced Placement courses, internship and work-study opportunities, a parallel enrollment program in conjunction with CCBC, a locally and nationally recognized Advanced Via Individual Determination (AVID) program, a CISCO academy, an Interactive Media Production program, a Freshmen Team, a National Honor Society, and a National Art Honor Society.

New Town's facilities are second to none. The Library Media Center contains 30 computers, over 18,000 volumes, and a comprehensive set of research databases for students to use both at home and in school. In addition to the Media Center, New Town has three computer science and business computer labs, an art computer lab, a music computer lab, three mobile computer labs, and two general use computer labs. This allows our students to integrate the latest in educational technology into their coursework on a daily basis. The school also offers a video production and television studio that allows the announcements (Titan TV) to be broadcast throughout the building each morning.

Student life at New Town is full of spirit. Proms, Spirit Week, pep rallies, and Homecoming are some of our Titans' favorite activities. New Town's celebration of student life and academic achievement culminates in the annual Hall of Fame induction. Students inducted into the Hall of Fame have excelled above and beyond the rest of the senior class. In addition, for those Titans who are looking to get involved, New Town offers 16 interscholastic athletic teams and 13 after-school clubs and activities.

New Town High School continues to set high standards for student achievement and success while promoting a safe and orderly atmosphere of spirit, tradition, cooperation, and creativity.


OUR MISSION

The mission of New Town High School is to prepare students for success as productive and marketable citizens, future leaders, and life-long learners. We commit to a rigorous 21st century learning environment that is safe and supportive. This will ensure that all students develop their individual potential based on the standards as outlined in Blueprint 2.0.
