The district encompasses the village of Lewisburg, and includes the surrounding communities of Northeast Preble County, Southeast Darke County, and Northwest Montgomery County. Our district has a long history of supporting public education in the area. Originally, the Twin Valley Local School district was comprised of two campuses. Twin Valley North was located in Lewisburg and Twin Valley South was located in West Alexandria. After much consideration, the two campuses were deconsolidated into separate districts in 1983. Since then, Tri-County North has graduated 39 classes. In 2019-2023, graduates earned over 705,450 in scholarships and awards to public and private colleges and universities in Ohio and across the nation. 

Tri-County North High School (Grades 9-12)

Tri-County North High School serves 257 students in grades 9-12. We offer a college preparatory curriculum along with numerous elective opportunities. TCN High School continually raises students' expectations by increasing the number of nationally recognized College Credit Plus (CCP) courses and other college preparatory experiences. During the 2024-2025 school year, we offer the State of Ohio College Credit Plus program, courses from Sinclair Community College and Edison Community College, and an ACT prep course. Our CCP courses include Western Civilization, The Federal Government, State and Local Government, and Biology. Our thorough general curriculum is designed to challenge each student. For those needing additional or alternative support, we provide an online curriculum and adjusted schedules. 

In addition to our academic offerings, TCN High School features an S.P.I.R.I.T. advisory program where teachers work with students to monitor their educational progress and provide guidance on non-cognitive skills such as perseverance, career planning, and making positive life choices. Additionally, TCN High School participates in the HOPE Squad program, where students nominated by their peers are trained by therapists and advisors to recognize and support their classmates in need. Finally, Tri-County North High School is affiliated with the Miami Valley Career Technology Center, which offers 50 vocational Agriculture Satellite programs on campus.

Tri-County North Middle School (Grades 5-8)

Tri-County North Middle School serves 225 students in grades 5-8. We offer a rigorous curriculum with opportunities for grade-level acceleration in individual subjects. Students are exposed to various teaching methods and are encouraged to take ownership of their learning at their own pace. The curricula include Into Reading, Into Literature, Math in Focus, and Science Fusion, all of which are standards-aligned and emphasize critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

At Tri-County North Middle School, we believe in providing a well-rounded education. Beyond the core curriculum, students can explore a variety of elective courses, such as Life Skills, Art, Music, Physical Wellbeing, Media, World Cultures, Health, STEM, Band, and Agriculture Science. These electives are designed to help students develop essential life skills and broaden their horizons. Our library is open after school every Monday through Thursday, offering a supportive environment for continued studies and peer tutoring.

Finally, TCN Middle School implements a school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program. This multi-tiered framework fosters a positive school climate, creating a safer learning environment and building trusting and respectful student-teacher relationships.

Tri-County North Elementary School (Grades PK-4)

Tri-County North Elementary School serves 295 students in grades PK-4. The school provides a robust literacy program in grades K-4 called Into Reading and Fundations, ensuring comprehensive language skills development. Mathematics instruction is delivered through the Singapore Math curricular program called Math in Focus. To ensure every student is successful, TCNES has developed a Response to Intervention (RTI) program. This multi-tier approach provides services and interventions to struggling learners at increasing levels of intensity, giving teachers timely information to improve student learning and performance. Additionally, all students participate in weekly Music, Art, Physical Education, and Library classes.

In addition to a thorough academic curriculum, TCNES has implemented a school-wide Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) system. This system encourages good behavior by focusing on prevention rather than punishment. The school uses PAX to teach students about behavior, similar to how other subjects like reading and math are taught. This program creates an environment where all students can succeed.

Finally, students in grades K-3 are equipped with 1:1 iPads, while students in grades 3-4 use Chromebooks. They work on a program called eSpark, which provides diagnostic data to guide students' work in educational apps. This allows all students to build their knowledge in reading and math at their level, providing an individualized learning pathway for everyone.

Curriculum, Instruction, and Technology at Tri-County North Local Schools

Our district is deeply committed to fostering high achievement through the integration of technology. We offer a Gifted Program and provide differentiated professional development for our teaching staff, all in support of this mission.

Our district’s curriculum and technology departments have worked jointly to enhance the infrastructure and integration of the district’s technology plans. TCN has upgraded its wireless routers, created dedicated and secure networks, and has achieved a one-to-one student-to-device ratio district-wide. Kindergarten through 2nd grade students use iPads, while students in grades 3-12 use Chromebooks. TCN is transitioning to a blended teaching approach, combining online and traditional print resources to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed for success in the 21st century.

Our district, in its pursuit of improved academic achievement and comprehensive student support, operates as a Title I school. While Title I funding is a federal grant originally intended for students in poverty, our program has evolved to serve all elementary and middle school students, regardless of socioeconomic status. This funding supports community and family events, educational services for students, and additional instructional supplies, ensuring all students receive the support they need.

At Tri-County North, our gifted programs are expanding and improving as we are committed to identifying and providing comprehensive services for our identified students. The gifted department collaborates closely with regular classroom teachers to provide professional development on various topics in gifted education, including designing engaging and challenging curricula and addressing the social and emotional needs of gifted children. We offer various services from elementary school through high school, including:

  • Pull-out services for superior cognitive, creative thinking, and reading and math identifications in grades 2-8

  • Cluster grouping for reading and math in elementary and middle school

  • Acceleration (single subject or whole grade)

  • Advanced Placement (AP) courses

  • College Credit Plus (CCP) courses when appropriate

Extra-Curricular and Community Partnerships

At Tri-County North, our students thrive academically and in extracurricular activities, thanks to our community's unwavering support, such as PTO, athletic boosters, Band Boosters, local businesses, faith communities, and governments. This collective effort enriches the lives of our students and strengthens our community. 

Many amenities surround this district, which is rural by nature yet a very comfortable place to be a permanent resident. Our district’s proximity to Interstate 70 allows our district and community easy access to Dayton, Columbus, and Indianapolis.
