NMS is an outstanding middle school where we are committed to the success of each of our students. Strong parental involvement in the education of their children is a vital component to our success. Working together, we are helping the children grow into readers, writers, creative thinkers, and problem solvers, as we prepare them for life in the 21st century.

Northwestern Middle School provides an academic environment guided by state standards and consistent evaluation, which enhances creative student learning and motivates early adolescents to develop life-long learning skills in an ever-changing and diverse world.
The vision of Northwestern Middle School is to provide an environment, in collaboration with parents and community, which supports students' intellectual, ethical, social, and physical development. Students become life-long learners who develop critical thinking and leadership skills by engaging in a rigorous curriculum of core and unified arts content. Students are provided with opportunities to make appropriate decisions, think independently, communicate effectively, and display curiosity.
My name is Heather Racine, and I am the counselor at Northwestern Middle School. I am very excited to be working with your student! While I may be newer to the middle school, I am not new to the corporation. Most of the students remember me as their counselor at Northwestern Elementary and Howard Elementary. As the school counselor, I will meet with students individually as well as groups, and I will be visiting classrooms. If you or your child has any concerns, please feel free to call or E-mail me at school. I will be happy to assist you in any way that I can!
