I believe this school is a school that cares for each individual student. The school has great teachers and staff that deeply care for the students enrolled at the school. The mascot is the Phoenix and just as the mascot, the people here care deeply about the community and the students that come to school each day to become college and career ready students. I invite any parent or community member to come by the school and see what a great school North Monterey County Middle School is all about. The principal and the assistant principal do speak Spanish too.

This will be the first year for my son at North County Middle School. He is also Autistic. From the Director, to the teachers aide, to the transportation department everyone has been so helpful and understanding. I feel very blessed to have such good people teach and care for my son. Good Job!!! Keep up the good work.

i go to this school as a 8th grade student and i am greatly disappointed in how my first day of school was and i wish i never ended up in that school... i could really use a change up,like the teachers being disrespected made fun of upfront because of how they look,act, or even dress!if they do that to them i wonder what they say about me behind my back.....

This school has gotten a bad reputation that it does not deserve. The teachers are wonderful, the principal will respond promptly to any issues, and administrators work hard to compensate for tremendous budget cuts. Top priority is attending to a diverse student population and meeting their needs. Parents are invited to contribute their time and expertise, just come in and offer!

NMCMS is working to achieve greatness in our children. The diversity is a challenge that the principal and administration have worked hard to overcome. Unfortunately, the energy of the majority of teachers is non-existent. They do nothing to challenge the students. Parents must be vocal to the school board regarding specific issues their children face. The principal is open to our concerns and addresses each individually to the best of his ability. It is our job as parents to be part of any solution not to perpetuate every problem.

The school is focused on improving the testing scores. Kids are above average students loose the opportunity to be academically challenged. Principal and teachers are great with the kids.
