Dear North Middle School Parents, Students, Family, and Friends,
Welcome to the Richard S. Sherman Great Neck North Middle School website. It is our hope that your visit to our digital home will provide you with a glimpse into the great things that are happening at NMS. Our webmaster, Ms. Danielle Larson, has worked tirelessly to ensure that this site provides relevant information that is geared toward strengthening the home-to-school relationship – as we are truly partners in education!
We are getting very excited about the opening of the 2017-2018 school year. As I enter my third year as principal of Great Neck North, I continue to be excited, honored, and humbled for the privilege to lead NMS. Through student engagement and student learning, we, as a learning community, provide the students of NMS with a multitude of opportunities to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. The entire staff of NMS is committed to ensuring its students’ success, as they navigate the often tumultuous world of middle school. We have worked diligently to develop an environment of success, and we will continually assess our programs to identify what works and what needs to be improved. This reflective practice assists us to make sure that NMS students are prepared to take on the challenges that lie ahead!
I look forward to a successful year of collaboration among all members of the NMS learning community, and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Gerald C. Cozine
