As a former student of Northport Middle School, I saw kids get into trouble for crying, I saw rampant bullying which the administration did nothing about, and i saw kids with minor learning disabilities being placed into classes with mentally disabled people. Notice that all of the good reviews are written by girls, that's because the bullying only happens to boys, not girls.

My daughter graduated from Northport Middle School after having a wonderful experience there. I vote for it!

NMS has been able to give my daughter and other children the extra help as well as extracurricular activities that help them become the thinkers of tomorrow.

I think Northport Middle School is a great school. The staff is always willing to help. The principal Tom Heinegg and Assistant Principal Chelsea Brown are hands on and are always available to help. They are very responsive to parents requests.

The quality of the academic programs is above par. The availability of music and art is outstanding. The availablity of sports and extracurricular activities is above average.

We have three children that experienced this school. The music department is not encouraging but tries to only keep the top students that they favor. Academically, they give so many opportunities for extra credit work that the honor society is not one with true honor students. The art department is wonderful. Discipline is not handled directly but pushed around from year to year until the troublesome child graduates. High scores on standardized tests can be credited to extensive cramming by the teachers 2 months before the tests.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
