North Shore Middle School has a reputation of ensuring that the unique needs and learner profile of every student are met – academically, emotionally, and socially.  Learning at NSMS is tailored to the individual interests and diversity of each of our students, providing an appropriate balance of rigor and remediation for all learners.  Students choose between a wide and impressive body of course electives that have been developed over time by our creative and dedicated faculty.  

Children are the center of our world at North Shore Middle School.  Central to the cornerstones of a NSMS education is our E3 philosophy: Everyone Matters, Everyone Cares, Everyone Learns!  We believe it to be paramount to not only provide a sound academic program to students, but, more importantly, to prepare them to be caring, empathetic, and reflective citizens.  E3 permeates the culture of the building, demonstrating to all that being a good person matters. 

The 2018-2019 school year promises to be an exciting one, filled with many challenges and opportunities.  We will work diligently to develop and nurture our students to be collaborators, communicators, thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, and committed individuals.  Focus on these shared valued outcomes will further calibrate our commitment to the development of the whole child.
