We are expanding and strengthening our emphasis on STEM education with
outreach to local individuals, businesses, and universities.
NTI achieved STEM-Certified School status in 2016, which continues through at least 2021. NTI is also a New Tech Network Demonstration Site and Exemplary School in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

participation in the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center
(SICTC) programs during junior and senior years. Alternately, juniors
and seniors can choose to participate in NTI's Entrepreneurial Academy
with connections to local businesses through internships as well as a
partnership with the local Chamber of Commerce.
students are also involved outside the classroom. We offer Archery,
Theater (through the Thunderbolt Players Thespian Troupe), National
Honor Society, Yearbook, Robotics Club, Aviation Club, Student Council, Spanish Club,
Book Club, Outdoor Club, and
Gamers Guild. Many of our extra-curricular activities stem from student
interest and have come to fruition through student voice.

students and staff. This 501(c)3 organization organizes fundraising,

multiple resources for our school among many other great contributions.
