    New Providence School District announces new Online Data Validation/Student Registration System - InfoSnap    

    The New Providence School District is excited to announce an online data validation/student registration system for the 2016-17 school year, powered by InfoSnap. InfoSnap is a secure system which will allow parents to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child(ren) prior to the start of the new school year. In addition, the system will allow you to electronically sign annual permission forms and the acknowledgement of school district policies.This online process will replace all of the hard copy student registration and permission forms previously sent home on the first days of school.

    In August, parents will receive an email from the District with instructions on how to access the system for your child(ren). The email will contain a secure “snapcode” that links directly to your student’s information. Validating and updating student information will be simple and easy. If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact your child’s school and you can make an appointment to use a school computer to complete the process. The District is excited to provide this new secure and "green" data validation/student registration system to our New Providence School District families.

    If you have any questions, please contact Scott Hough the Assistant Superintendentof Educational Services at 908-464-9050 extension 222.

    Our TEAMS team (a sub-group of STEM club) competed in the TSA National Competition in Nashville, TN.  After months of preparation, planning, and excitement, NPMS proved to be a skilled competitor taking part in three different types of competitions over the course of three days.  We placed in the Top 10 in "Written Essay" and "Prepared Presentation."  We placed 3rd in "Problem Solving Performance Task" and took 4th place in the "Overall Combined Competition."  This was a rewarding experience for NPMS TEAMS and congratulations to all on their outstanding achievements!

Welcome

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.
