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 children learn, grow and become "better students and better citizens" who will contribute to this outstanding community. Nyack Middle School strives to prepare our students to lead in our ever-evolving world. We stress 21st-Century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking, compassion, creativity, and cultural awareness.  The faculty and staff of Nyack Middle School hold the highest expectations of excellence from the students that we teach. We have an unwavering dedication to helping students achieve their goals and dreams.  

At Nyack Middle School, we are charged with developing the minds of the young people whom we teach.  We strive to instill character in our students that reflects the values of this great community. Our students learn to have empathy and responsibility towards each other. We will continue to promote Nyack Middle School P.R.I.D.E. by teaching our behavior expectations daily while also understanding that mistakes in behavior provide opportunities for learning and growth.  With this approach, we will have not only better students but also better citizens. 

We believe that our diversity is our greatest strength. We celebrate our differences and embrace the melting pot that this district and country embodies.

Parental involvement and communication are 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.
