Principal's Message

North Stanly Middle School is committed to providing the highest quality of education for every student. Our vision for NSMS is to create a collaborative learning community with high expectations for students through encouragement, praise, teamwork, cooperative learning and self-discipline. As a principal, my role is to maximize learning opportunities and outcomes for our students.  

Our focus areas this year:

  • Collaborative Planning to determine best instructional practices to improve student learning.
  • Utilize NC Check-ins and i-Ready data to determine concepts for remediation/interventions.
  • Work closely with ELA and Math coaches to improve instruction.
  • Communicate regularly with parents, guardians, and the community through Remind 101, emails, Canvas, social media, and phone calls.  

Parents, thank you for allowing us to be part of your child’s life.   Collaboration with parents and community members keeps us strong and in touch with the needs of our students. We encourage all stakeholders to take an active role in the educational process by communicating regularly with teachers, attending school events, joining the PTO, and making sure students complete the necessary studies to be successful at school each day.   You play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore, school/parent communication is crucial. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. Together, our students will grow and succeed!
