Mission Statement

At Northwood Middle School, it is our mission to prepare all students for the next step of their education, in addition to providing them with the skills necessary to function as responsible and productive members within a democratic society.  We strive to provide them with attainable challenges in the areas of academics, critical thinking, and basic skills.  We continually strive to promote self-esteem by engaging every student in the learning process while allowing for individual differences.  Furthermore, we consider education to be a collective effort, dependent upon mutual respect and shared responsibilities among students, educators, parents, and members of the community.  Finally, it is our goal that our students develop and nurture responsibility, perseverance, and an unrelenting desire to succeed, thereby providing them the foundation for a lifetime of success.
A team above all.
