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.

    NAMS Message to Grade 5 Families - 6/17/22

    Hello Current Grade 5 families,

    I hope that this message finds you and your loved ones well. It was wonderful to see so many parents/guardians this past Monday Night at Move-Up Night. Provided at Move Up Night was a list of suggested books for middle school parents/guardians, which you may find here.

    For those of you in attendance, you were able to meet the staff on each of our 4 Teams (6A, 6B, 6C, & 6D) and hear about middle school. You will be provided with lots of information over the summer because I tend to communicate quite a bit, sorry ahead of time!

    In this message you will find some additional information about the middle school, summer opportunities, and so much more.
