We Love North!
North Middle School is a unique school as we are a highly diverse learning environment. We believe that all students can learn at high levels. We believe in social emotional learning and have begun to incorporate social emotional learning in our homeroom classes. We have also created a peer mentoring program for students and led by students. In the 2019-2020 school year we will be piloting a Trauma Informed Schools approach, as well as providing 21st Century Learning experiences for every middle school student.
Our “highly” engaging teachers provide intervention and enrichment classes to meet the diverse needs of our students and to ensure they are ready and prepared for high school and beyond. Every student is exposed to the Career & Technical Education(CTE) classes in 8th grade to pursue the College, Career, and Life Ready initiative. We welcome community engagement partners and appreciate those who have already made an invaluable impact in our school and with our students.
Our teachers strive each day to provide high levels of instruction, that is rigorous, relevant, and engaging. We have many layers of supports for our students to include intervention/enrichment classes, academic counselors, a Student Success Facilitator, Family Book Club, Family Engagement Nights, PBIS Activities, Beyond the Bell, Beyond the School Year, etc.
With your support, our expert, dedicated, and caring staff will work hard to keep our students safe, while supporting their academic and social-emotional growth. Together, let’s focus all our energy to make sure that it is evident that our students are growing adequately in a school community that constantly strives for excellence and equity.
