About Our School
New Century’s demographic is a mirror image of Huntsville City Schools. Generally speaking, the percentages of white and black students are equal (41% White, 39% Black) with the remaining percentages of students comprising mostly Hispanic (9%), Multi-racial, Asian, and Other.
In 2012, the school was physically relocated from the western edge of Huntsville City, to a more central location in the newly built Lee High School building. Since this move, more students from the south and east parts of Huntsville have showed a greater interest in applying to New Century and the overall enrollment of the school has increased.
All students at New Century are selected for admission based on their interest in technology in the areas of engineering, computer science, and/or biomedical science. Students complete at least two additional electives in these areas each year in addition to the requirements set forth by State of Alabama. All students at New Century are expected to complete the Huntsville City Schools Honors Diploma and are asked to take the most advanced classes in the core areas in which they are able to experience academic success. An emerging area of focus at New Century is an embodiment of ethical behavior for students. Respect for diversity, fairness, and personal responsibility are expectations that are integrated within the curriculum.
The mission of New Century Technology High School is to immerse motivated, highly-capable students in advanced studies and industry experience in the fields of computer science, engineering, and biomedical science as Huntsville’s only STEM magnet high school.
New Century Technology High School, as a positive, diverse, friendly, and challenging learning community, is committed to adapting our curriculum to prepare students to be leaders in the evolving global STEM workforce.
It is the practice of New Century Technology High School to ensure equity in regards to race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and socio-economic status in its educational programs and admission.
