Welcome to NAMS

Our Mission

We are an educational organization of life long learners involving students, educators, parents and our community. Together we strive to create a welcoming environment that prioritizes academic excellence, creativity and mutual respect. We embrace diversity and encourage positive risk taking and community building. We are persistent in becoming an exemplary high performing comprehensive middle school.

North Andover Middle School provides a developmental middle school approach to learning. We recognize individual learning styles as we focus on process writing, mathematics using manipulatives, and the inquiry approach in all subjects, including science and social studies. Our classroom environments support critical and creative thinking, cooperative and individual learning with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary curriculum.
