Superintendent’s Message

New Boston Local Schools provides high quality education and many opportunities for our students in our small town, rural school environment. Our staff's main objective is to provide a safe and secure environment along with promoting physical, social, mental and emotional growth of the whole child. Our vision is simple. We want to "Grow 'Em". We want them to grow in every aspect of life so that in the future, they will become productive citizens in this ever changing world. Our entire staff is a part of the children's lives at school. The teaching and classified staff know our kids and want the very best for them. The New Boston Community also plays an important role in our safety and security policies, along with the support they give to facilitate and enhance student learning. A Big “Thank You” to everyone who helps in the education of our children.  We have a GRRRReat Community.

The facility is designed so that teachers collaborate and integrate lessons and objectives across the curriculum. We feel that communication is top priority in the education process and learning environment, in which we pride ourselves in the fact that we are small but mighty with communication at the core of the educational outcomes of our students.

Mr. Jack Rice has officially retired from New Boston Local Schools.  We appreciate all of the years Jack has driven our kids to events, and to/from school.  Best of luck to you in the future.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call and reach out to me.  The New Boston School System is dear to my heart.  I embrace the opportunity to share the love of our Village.

                                                                                                Yours in Education,

                                                                                                Melinda Burnside, Superintendent
