School Data and Profile
New Urban High School is a magnet school within the North Clackamas School District. Along with the district, we believe that our program compliments the district by offering another high school choice for students. We believe in strong connections with students, connections to our staff, connections to curriculum and learning, and a commitment to New Urban as a school.
Our students receive a North Clackamas diploma upon graduation. We require Youth Take Action, a course in which students develop an awareness about their community and how they can make a difference in it. They participate in service activities with local non-profit organizations in order to see that teenagers can, in fact, make a positive difference. Students also are required to complete Senior Internship where they research a career field of interest, complete a 60 hour internship at a local business, create a three year plan, and present their experiences to a panel. We employ two school counselors for our 270 students and believe strongly in supporting the emotional and mental health needs of our students. We currently partner with several community organizations who help provide this support. Our students often describe our school culture as “a family” and we believe in creating a culture that is positive, supportive and safe.
