Newbury High School is a public high school in Newbury, Ohio. It is the only high school in the Newbury Local Schools district. Their nickname is the Black Knights. It is the only school district in Geauga County that serves a single township—all others are consolidated. (although as of 2013, the school was in active discussions to fold into the neighboring Berkshire_High_School_(Burton,_Ohio)

All grades (K-12) are located at the same site at 14775 Auburn Rd, just north of Kinsman Rd. (State Route 87). Grades 4-6 are located in a building constructed in the early 1970s, with grades 7-12 housed in the original building. Newbury's athletic director is also the dean of students for the high school. There is one principal and one secretary for the high school and one principal and secretary for the elementary school.

The main building houses grades K-3, as well as 7-12. This building was built in the late 1920's. This secondary and elementary building has three floors.

The upper elementary, which houses grades 4-6, was built in the 1970s and has an open classroom setting. The 4-6 building has an auditorium that seats approximately 300 guests, and features full stage equipment, catwalks and dressing rooms.


Nicknamed the Black Knights, Newbury High School offers multiple sports for both boys and girls, including soccer, football, wrestling, baseball, cross country and track (boys), cross country and track (girls), volleyball, and basketball.

Through 1989, the Black Knights were part of the East Suburban Conference. Starting with the 1989-90 academic year, Newbury entered the Chagrin Valley Conference, which includes much larger schools such as Kenston, Chagrin Falls and Wickliffe.
