Northland High School Career Connections
Career Connections @ Northland HS In partnership with the Ohio Department of Education and Northland Star Partners
At Northland High School, our mission, as a diverse community of learners, is to help students succeed in college, the military, and the workforce. To fulfill this mission, we must also help students identify their career aspirations, connect their interests to a career, and leverage community partnerships for extended learning opportunities.
Through the Career Connections Workshop Series, students will participate in eight (8) 90-minute workshops of their choosing throughout the school year that aligns with one of the 16 career pathways developed around Ohio’s in-demand occupations.
We are joined by the Northland Star Partners, a newly-formed community action organization, that will provide volunteers and resources to make this an enriching experience for all. We are excited about this opportunity to help ALL of our students declare their career aspirations and engage with caring adults who will help them discover the path to career success.
Please check out our downloable program for more information about the workship days and dates, the bell schedule, a QR code students can use to identify which workshops they are interested in, and a comprehensive list with details of all 39 available workshops.

Northland Staff Travel Time
In my statistics through social justice class, we did a project that focused on social justice in our community. My topic was how long does it take Northland staff to get to work. I chose this topic because I personally believe that the time it takes someone to travel to work can affect how they feel about their job. I surveyed 30 random staff members, and the results that I got were really inconsistent. Most of the staff members live 25-27 minutes away, but I was also surprised by how many of them live about 5 minutes away. Going in I didn’t really have expectations for the results, but I did know that there would be a huge variety of times that I’d get. Something that I learned was that people will go where work is. For just Northland alone there are so many people who travel a long time to get to their jobs, so that says a lot about what people will do to have jobs. What I learned can, and will be used in future endeavors.
Northland High School is building a community garden on the roof!Students and teachers at Northland met together to implement a learning lab garden that they will use to apply what they are learning in social studies and science to the real world.
