Our Solar Sprints competition concluded last week. This year three of our five competing teams made it to the final round of competition. Congratulations to NPMS students who competed at Solar Sprints!
In Stem Club students just finished a competition involving "Robotic Surgery." Students worked in a Team of six to create a device that uses a hydraulic system to perform a specific task. NPMS placed 3rd place in this competition. TEAMS students are preparing for the National Competition. Congratulation to TEAMS students and good luck at the National Competition!

Welcome to New Providence Middle School!
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 offers a comprehensive and rigorous educational experience
for our students. Our Program of
Studies allows all students to complete a full year in Language Arts,
Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Health/Physical Education and World
Language. Within our Language
Arts and Math curricula, we offer students enrichment opportunities to further
challenge and develop their skills and academic performance. In addition, every
student has the opportunity to explore Robotics, Performing Arts, Visual Arts,
Practical Arts, Music and
additional Language Arts. Students
can also 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.
NPMS has a very accomplished, dedicated and highly involved faculty. We believe in creating a school environment that meets the academic, civic, social and emotional needs of our early adolescent learners while promoting individual success. Our character education programs are centered around school and district-wide themes. Our school-wide theme of “Readiness, Responsibility and Respect” is incorporated into students’ 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. Previous district-wide themes include, “Step it Up, Kindness Counts” and “Be the Difference.” These themes incorporate school and community involvement and service and help to bring all district schools together with common character education goals.
We embrace parents and community members as partners in the educational process of our students, as they play an integral role in the success of our children. We work together to foster a meaningful teacher-parent relationship built on strong communication focusing on students’ needs. We are fortunate to have a very involved Parent-Teacher Organization that collaborates and complements the educational experience for our entire school community.
