Welcome

New Providence Middle School (NPMS) is proud to be designated a Blue Ribbon School. One of the most prestigious awards in the country, the Blue Ribbon designation distinguishes and honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are academically superior and that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.  Additionally,  NPMS has been recognized by the NJ Department of Education as a model school for the successful implementation of the “Positive Behavior Support in Schools” (PBSIS) program.  These two achievements are a testament to what can be accomplished when students, teachers, parents and administrators work together toward the common goal of making NPMS a successful school.

 

NPMS has a very accomplished, dedicated and highly involved faculty.  We believe in creating a school environment that meets the physical, intellectual, civic, social and emotional needs of our early adolescent learners while promoting individual success.  As part of our character education program,  our school-wide theme of “Readiness, Responsibility and Respect” is incorporated into our daily routines.  Our entire school community embraces this philosophy,  as these values will prepare our students for high school as well as all their future endeavors.

 

NPMS offers a comprehensive Program of Studies.  All students will complete a full year in the core subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Health/Physical Education and World Language.   Within our Language Arts and Math curriculum we offer students enrichment opportunities to further challenge and develop their skills and academic performance. Besides our core subjects, every student will have an opportunity to explore his or her interest in Robotics, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Practical Arts, Music, and Language Arts.  Our students are highly motivated and enthusiastic; they take advantage of the many co-curricular activities which include Math Club, Yearbook, Girls’ Ensemble, Boys’ Ensemble, Jazz Band, Peer Leaders, Student Council, Student Services Organization and Science Club.  Our co-curricular activities complement our challenging Program of Studies and provide students with an opportunity to develop leadership skills and contribute to the betterment of the school community. 

 

We embrace our parents as partners in the educational process of all our students,  as they play an integral role in the success of our children.  We work together to foster a meaningful teacher-parent relationship. We are fortunate to have a very involved PTA that complements the educational experience for our entire school community.
