New Town High School opened it's doors on Lakeside Blvd. in Owings Mills in the year 2003. Since that time, New Town has consistently raised the level of academic rigor and student achievement for its students. The school is based on a "main street" design, and contains a large, full-service cafeteria, a 600-seat state-of-the-art auditorium, and modern athletic facilities.
The school has numerous academic programs designed to promote a culture of success for our students: 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, a National Honor Society, a National Art Honor Society, and a dance program. NTHS also eases the transition from middle to high school for our freshmen students through our Freshmen Academy. Our Titan students have also excelled in the arts, as New Town's vocal and instrumental music program and art program continue to excel at Baltimore County and Maryland state competitions.
New Town's facilities are second to none. The Media Center contains 30 computers, over 18,000 volumes, the most up-to-date school technology, 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 contains five business and technology education computer labs, a journalism/publication computer lab, an AVID computer lab, an art computer lab, a music computer lab, two mobile science 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 state-of-the-art video production and television studio that allows the announcements (Titan TV) to be broadcast throughout the building each morning.
Student life at New Town continues to see the school build more traditions each year. An annual Powder Puff game and Pep Rally during Spirit Week leading up to Homecoming have become Titan favorites. The school also just inducted its first annual Hall of Fame class, a prestigious honor established to honor students who have excelled above and beyond the rest of the student body. In addition, for those looking to get involved, New Town has 20 interscholastic athletic teams and 13 after-school clubs and activities for students.
Overall the school continues to set high standards for student achievement and success while promoting a safe and orderly atmosphere of tradition, cooperation, and creativity.
