NHS Athletic Fields
The 20 acres adjoining the high school buildings have been transferred to the City. Through an agreement between the City of Denver and DPS, DPS will construct the sports fields on city-owned land using city standards for fields. The City and DPS have a shared-use agreement for the times the fields will be used by the high school and the times it will be open to the public.
The DPS Board voted unanimously to accept the Bond Oversight Committee’s recommendation to allocate a total of $7.1 million for construction of a portion of the commons building at Northfield High School. Plans have not been finalized but it is expected that the building will include a kitchen (initially warming only), a cafetorium and a stage, as shown in the shaded area of the preliminary drawing below.

The Northfield hiring committee, with input from community members, is choosing the founding team. New faculty and staff will be introduced in coming weeks via the NHS Facebook page and website.
