Welcome to New Plymouth High School---Home of the Pilgrims!

Welcome to New Plymouth High School

danhullAt NPHS we believe that each student has the right to achieve his or her fullest potential. I believe that school principals have the absolute obligation to provide all kids the opportunity to learn and all teachers have the support to teach in a safe, nurturing environment that is focused on student achievement.

Communities and families are the integral component of every school culture. I am confident that our teachers at NPHS have the vision, work-ethic, commitment, and passion for schools to bring people together to create a dynamic learning environment for our students.

I feel we are very fortunate to be at New Plymouth and I feel that we have an outstanding teaching staff at NPHS who are passionate about student achievement.This year we will continue to help our students meet academic benchmarks and find post-secondary opportunities. We will all be working hard as a whole school to help our students achieve success. NPHS will continue collaborating to ensure that each student is meeting the mark in the classroom. The committed staff at NPHS will make our student achievement vision become a reality that can be measured. I am extremely excited to work with our students and staff and we are looking forward to an outstanding year. Go Grims!

Dan Hull, 
NPHS Principal

VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award                                                       

Congratulations to Ron Lysinger  for winning the District and State Citizenship Award.  Ron has been an exceptional Career Advisor at NPHS. He has been an outstanding teacher in the district for the past eight years. He is also a Cross Country Coach, VFW, veteran assembly leader, student advisor, and in his spare time he is also the career advisor at NPHS. He has been a pleasure to work with and as his supervisor at New Plymouth High School, I have found him to be caring, highly organized, and dedicated to his work. Ron is a leader who has given New Plymouth stability and continuity and has allowed for student success. He works with all students at NPHS to ensure that they get the assistance they need to help our students find leadership experiences in all branches of the armed forces: information, civic responsibilities, patriotism, flag etiquette and American traditions. What I appreciate most about Ron is his ability to engage others in the patriotism and leadership roles at NPHS because of his military background. He is focused on doing what is right for kids despite the difficult challenges that we currently face in education and the world today. He also has a deep and complete understanding of student leadership and how it should be utilized in the classroom to motivate students for post-secondary opportunities. Currently Mr. Lysinger schedules over 20 yearly visits from a variety of local military recruiters to promote patriotism as a potential career pathway.  Ron’s kind-hearted reflective nature and passion surrounding patriotism, school climate, career advising and school leadership. I have been impressed with his civic responsibility, flexibility, teaching techniques, and leadership. He also challenges students to step outside of that comfort zone and deal with a broad range of topics. His success is due, in part, to his strong reflective approach to life and education. He has his feet, mind, and his heart firmly planted in the world of education. Congratulations,  Ron is now a national candidate.  Thanks for all you do for our students.
