At NMS, the teachers are like family to me. Currently in 9th grade, and miss my 8th grade teachers so much. At the 8th grade graduation, my heart bled as i love the teachers so much. And at North Middlesex, we have a prodigious band, exceptional special education (the special ed teachers and programs and clubs are phenomonal). Also, the other kids are very nice. NM is preeminant in so many ways. This place has even helped me find a hypothetical cure for cancer in 6th grade. The school resource officer is an amazing person. I love this school district, its like a 2nd home to me. Hope you all have a great day.

North Middlesex is a great high school that truly prepares their students for college. After spending two years of high school in the old school and two in the new high school I can earnestly say they have acquired amazing new resources. The environment is completely safe and students can go to school feeling assured that their security is in great hands. If I could change one thing however, I would like to see the administration listen to the student body more. Before taking away valuable classes, they should thoroughly see how much it impacts the students affected by their choice.
I like that the focus is on making a better community, and the pride students have. North Middlesex is a community based high school where teachers and students can develop relationships and learn great communication skills. Each student has the ability to thrive and their are numerous different clubs for each different interest.
