ACADEMICS

Grades 4K – 5th:
The schools focus on a core curriculum of literacy, math, and science, as well as environmental education. The comprehensive teachers are highly trained in math, literacy, and science, and collaborate to ensure best practice instruction. An outdoor education component that includes direct instruction into the sciences is an enriching part of the comprehensive classrooms and involves our students in real learning within their DNR recognized forestry.

Our classrooms offer a structured framework and differentiate to meet the learning expectations of all students.

Grades 6th – 8th:
Our middle school features a variety of electives to match student interests, including: art, theatre, choir, musical performances, orchestra, band, and jazz band. NSMS’s new STEM lab includes robotics, 3D printing, and construction design.

Our math program is challenging and ensures that students will meet and exceed high school expectations. To enrich our math program we have an Arrowhead High School teacher on staff at NSMS, which helps bridge the middle school math program with the high school math program.

Part of our curriculum is our state of the art STEM lab with 3D printing. Our teachers are collaborative and highly qualified by being certified in the content areas they teach in math, science, and language arts.
