Welcome to New Palestine High School! Thank you for visiting our website.  As principal, it’s an honor to serve the students of New Palestine High School and the community of New Palestine.

New Palestine High School has a deep tradition of excellence academically and in our extra curricular activities. We offer a rigorous curriculum focused on preparing students for future success. In addition to traditional curricular options, our Project Lead the Way Biomedical Sciences and Engineering programs expose students to real world concepts. In partnership with Vincennes University, The Early College at New Palestine High School offer students the opportunity to earn up to 60 college credits prior to high school graduation.

There are numerous extra-curricular options available to our students, as our performing arts programs consistently earn state recognition. Our athletic programs are among the state’s best, with our football team winning the 2014 AAAA State Championship. There truly is something for everyone at New Palestine High School!
