NMS Building News......

If you were to rewind the clock to a couple of hundred years ago, you wouldn’t find the town of Nyack. Instead, you would find the Nyack indigenous tribe who used to love and live on the same land that we now call home. Although our community has a rich indigenous past, very few people know about the original Nyackers. Ms. Murphy’s 7th-grade Social Studies students set out to change just that by spreading the untold story of the Native Nyackers. Each of the students produced their own children’s book to help educate our youngest community members. Here you will find Zoe Reiss’ creation.

Spotlight on NMS

Message from the Principal : David Johnson

Nyack Middle School serves approximately 660 students in grades 6 through 8.  We strive to create an environment where all students learn, grow and become "better students and better citizens" who will contribute to this outstanding community.  At Nyack Middle School, we strive to prepare our students to take a leading role in our ever evolving world.  We stress 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity.  

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year will be a test of our creativity and resilience. We will continue to create an environment where every member of our Nyack Middle School family is valued and respected. The faculty and staff of Nyack Middle School hold the highest expectations of excellence from the students that we teach. While our modes of delivering instruction will be different, our unwavering dedication to helping students achieve their goals and dreams will remain the same.  

At Nyack Middle School, we are charged not just with developing the minds of the young people whom we teach, but also with instilling character. We will continue to instill Nyack Middle School PRIDE in our students by teaching our behavior expectations daily while understanding that mistakes in behavior provide opportunities for learning and growth. We will instill in our students a sense of empathy and responsibility towards each other and their community. With this, we will have not only better students but also better citizens.

Parental involvement and communication is the foundation of any successful school.  As a resident of this community and a parent of two students who attend Nyack Public Schools,  I am deeply invested in the success of every student attending Nyack Middle School.  Thank you for entrusting your children's education to the faculty and staff of Nyack Middle School. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.
