Welcome to Northdale Middle School (NMS) where our primary mission is to effectively educate each of our students for success.

    To fulfill this mission, our school's vision is to:

    • Equip students with the tools to be life-long learners in a technologically changing world,
    • Respect, celebrate, and become more aware of individual differences,
    • Increase achievement through individual growth, rigorous curriculum and student success,
    • Create a safe, supportive environment for students to learn, and
    • Work collaboratively with and among parents/guardians, staff, students and the community.


    We look forward to the opportunity to work with you as partners in education as we support students to strive for personal excellence and academic achievement.
