From our Superintendent
Mr. Scott Schmidt

Welcome students, parents, residents and prospective families to Northridge Local Schools.

At Northridge Local Schools we care about all of our students and support them in reaching their fullest potential.  We want them to not only achieve in the classroom but to grow and gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in the future.  

This growth often comes from encouraging teachers as well as enthusiastic coaches and supportive parents.  Our students are fortunate to have many opportunities to participate in athletic, artistic and academic activities.  From the marching band, art clubs, choirs, and musicals to the Quiz Bowl Teams, Power of the Pen and United Model Nations, along with the 13 different varsity sports we offer,  there is truly something for everyone at Northridge.

The schools are a central part of the Northridge Schools’ community, and our administrators, teachers, parents and community members have great passion for our students.  Continued communication with our parents and community members is critical. We believe in open and honest conversations and letting our residents know about the good value they receive from our Northridge Local Schools.

Thank you again for visiting our webpage.  If you have any questions about Northridge Local Schools, don’t hesitate to call or send us an email. The Viking family of teachers, coaches, administrators and parents all work hard and are committed to supporting our students’ educational journey here at Northridge Local Schools.

Listening Tour Information

Once again this year I will be conducting a Superintendent's "Listening Tour."  The tour is a chance for me to meet with various community leaders, citizens, neighbors, and families. This Listening Tour is informal and can happen at a time that is convenient for you and a couple of your friends, colleagues, or neighbors; no group is too large or small.  I will be able to share information about our student's accomplishments, answer your questions and most importantly listen to you. I want to know more about ideas and thoughts and learn more about the communities which the Northridge Local Schools serve.




It's a Great Day to be a Viking!
