Northern Middle School’s mission is to successfully meet the academic and social challenges of the transitional child. We strive to be supportive, yet set high standards; we strive to be child-centered, yet encourage growth. We strive to provide our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in a rigorous high school program.


We work to maintain a safe and positive learning community guided by research-based best practices. Our well-trained staff encourages each student to reach for character and academic excellence. We strive to motivate our students through a variety of challenging learning opportunities, and provide a curriculum based on the premise that all students can become life-long learners. We teach our students to make educated decisions and communicate effectively. We understand and accommodate the unique physical, creative, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of the transitional adolescent. We encourage and provide increasingly challenging experiences that develop independent and responsible learners. We establish consistently enforced rules, boundaries, and structure to ensure that our students become effective citizens and leaders in a diverse society. As part of this process we implement the research based and validated Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) program, reminding our students to be Prepared for class each day, Attentive to instruction and direction, Working to achieve excellence, and Safe in school and on the bus.
