We are NWKMS

Northwest Middle School has three grades consisting of the 6th, 7th and 8th serving  800 students. There are twelve Exploratory Teachers who teach twelve exploratory classes, offering Healthy Living, Advanced Manufacturing, Communication Arts, Art, Band, Vocal Music, Spanish, Family and Consumer Science, Physical Education/Fitness, Speech, Choir, Weight Lifting, Yearbook and Minecraft.  In addition to the core areas and exploratories, Northwest Kidder Middle School supports special education services including a MOCI room, a MICI room, resource rooms and Intermediate School District Services.  We have forty-five teachers, two learning specialists, two counselors, four secretaries, one nurse and two principals that staff our building.    

Our building has been focused on three core expectations: Kindness, Motivation and Success.  We use these in all areas throughout our building and reward our students for making good choices and meeting these expectations.  Our staff recognizes students that display these expectations of kindness, motivation, and success by giving them a mountie ticket which enters them in a weekly drawing for small prizes

We also have a Student of the Month recognition that our teachers can nominate students for and have a celebration with the students and invite their parents to join us as well. We love this opportunity to recognize students and celebrate with their parents the positive things that they are doing every day.

We are fortunate to have a hard working and caring staff that does all that it can to provide an excellent educational experience for each of our students.  We have so many great things happening in our building and throughout our district.  As many people say It is a great day to be a Mountie.
