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.
Northern Middle School will work to maintain a safe and positive learning community guided by research-based best practices. Our well-trained staff will encourage each student to reach for character and academic excellence. We will 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 will teach our students to make educated decisions and communicate effectively. We will understand and accommodate for the unique physical, creative, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of the transitional adolescent. We will encourage and provide increasingly challenging experiences that will develop independent and responsible learners. We will establish consistently enforced rules, boundaries, and structure to ensure that our students become effective citizens and leaders in a diverse society.
