Northwood Top Middle School

CelebrateDear Northwood Middle School Parents and Students,

I have the distinct pleasure of sharing some truly exceptional news with all of you: The South Carolina School Report Cards were made public today, and Northwood Middle School has once again earned the highest rating of "Excellent" with a total of 68 points! Not only is this a remarkable achievement, but our point total also makes us the highest-rated middle school in Greenville County.

These points are a comprehensive measure of our performance and encompass various aspects, including:
- Student academic achievement in math, ELA, and 6th-grade science
- Student academic growth in math, ELA, and 6th-grade science
- Multilingual Learners progress toward language acquisition goals
- Climate perceptions of students, parents, and teachers

This achievement is a testament to our students, teachers, and staff's tireless work, dedication, and commitment. It also reflects the exceptional learning environment we've fostered here at Northwood, focused on ALL students' growth and well-being.

We have planned some special events for tomorrow, Wednesday, October 11th, to celebrate our significant accomplishment. Our staff and students are cordially invited to enjoy a free dress-down day! Our wonderful PTA will also provide all students and staff with complimentary ice cream sandwiches at lunch.

I am profoundly proud of our achievements and feel incredibly fortunate to be part of such an exceptional school community. It's an honor to call myself a Northwood Knight, and I am confident that we will continue to build upon these achievements.

Thank you for your continuous support and engagement. Your involvement makes Northwood Middle School not just a place of learning, but a community where everyone thrives.

Warm regards,
Mr. Lee
Principal, Northwood Middle School
