I was a student at NGMS for the past three years (2007-2010) and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The teachers and staff are very nice and understanding, and most of the teachers offer tutoring or retakes on tests in the mornings or after school. I have made so many friendships witha lot of my classmates, and there is a numerous amount of clubs and activities to get involved in (as well as athletics). I give this school a 4 because they are still fairly new and have room for improving. Many parents are not very happy with the fact that a few teachers are showing movies, but these are shown usually at the end of the year after testing is over and we are pretty much done with our studies. I really enjoyed Northern, and I hope you come to find it to your liking!

I gave this school a 2 star rating back in November because of the reports that my daughter was coming home with, but now it is almost June and my impression of this school has gone down. I've learned from her and other parents that some of the teachers spend more time showing movies, than actually teaching and the fights are increasing. I will be homeschooling my son, rather than send him to this school next year.

NMGS is good - for this area, but NC schools are not all that good to begin with. The principal is very good, but teachers commit to things and don't follow through. Teachers talk big about staying up to date with communication and web-based tools to communicate assignments, projects and such, then a month later - no more. Often, interim reports are distributed two weeks late. What is the point of providing the web access if it is not going to be used? Waste of tax dollars! In fairness, there are a few who are actually are self-disciplined, but its the minority of them. The only reason for the sucess is parental involvement and expecations are high in this location.

My children attended K-5 in Guilford County. Some of their teachers were amazing beyond words, but the administration and after school programs were so awful that you wondered why the great teachers remained. On to N.G.M. Our experience there has been amazing teachers, just like in the elementary school, but the step up in administration is the best part. Any issue we have (and we are involved parents) we feel that we are heard. This school is large, the high school will be even larger, but it seems the are putting people in place that will keep the standards, enthusiasm, and caring up! Well done so far N.G.M!!!

I moved to Browns Summit just for the school district. My kids love their school. They have wonderful teachers and they have developed close friendships with most of their classmates. I have found the office staff friendly and very helpful. When my child was hurt at school the VP even called me after hours to check on her.
