Mission Statement

The mission of North District Middle School is to provide a balanced, comprehensive, student-centered curriculum that develops life-long learners in a safe and caring environment.


Welcome to North District Middle School (NDMS) for the 2017-2018 school year. We have a vision for NDMS and all our students, that is, to make it one of the best schools in the world by providing the best education possible to our students.


We are continuing with our theme from last year, ―Change Is Inevitable, Progress Is Intentional”. There have been many changes since the beginning of last school term and we anticipate there are many yet to come this year.  The staff of NDMS accepts the challenge of working towards progress instead of allowing the multitude of changes to cause us to feel overwhelmed and/or become stagnate. We have made some changes in scheduling, course offerings, and activities that we believe will prove beneficial to our students.


Please take time to read through this handbook with your child. It will provide pertinent information about NDMS and school district policies, programs, and activities. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (803)943-3507.


To acknowledge receipt and understanding of this handbook, the parent/guardian and student are to sign the designated page and students are to return it to their homeroom teacher.


Thank you and I look forward to a successful school year.

Sincerely yours,


Patricia A. Brantley Principal
