Principal's Message

Welcome to Northside Middle School, home of the Titans.  Northside Middle School has been recognized by the Indiana Department of Education as a Family Friendly School.  Northside educates students in grades 6-8 with a wide variety of ethnic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.  

Northside recognizes the diversity of the students that walk through our doors each day and strives to meet individual student needs.  We offer a variety of curricular subjects that allow students to learn in different ways.  From high school credit classes like Geometry, Algebra, and Spanish to cutting edge Project Lead the Way Computer Science classes, we have courses for all learners.

The physical facilities at Northside include an 800 seat auditorium, gymnasium, media center, labs and classrooms which enhance the educational programs.  All students at Northside are 1:1 with Chromebooks.

Titan students have a plethora of extracurricular activities to stay involved in throughout the year.  Year round athletics, clubs, and theater keep students actively engaged.  Award winning bands and choirs compete in regional and state competitions.  

Northside values strong partnerships within the community.  Ball State University, Meridian Health Services, Glad Tidings and other area churches all provide levels of support to our school family.  The NMS PTO is active and meets monthly.

Please follow us on Twitter at NMS Principal@NMS_MCS and on Facebook at Northside Middle School PTO to stay current on Titan news.  We look forward to educating your children and fostering a great relationship with your family as we prepare students for Muncie Central High School and beyond.

Planning for Next Semester

December 1, 2020

Dear MCS Family,

I hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving break and were able to safely gather with family and friends.

We are starting to plan for next semester and need to know if your student is going to change from the in-school program to our Virtual Learning Program (VLP) or vice versa. If so, please contact the school office at 765-747-5290 before December 16 and let us know of your plans to change.

Please remember that this is a commitment for the entire semester, so students will not have the opportunity to change their placement until the 2021-22 school year. For students planning to stay in the same program they are currently in, there is no need to contact us.

Anyone who needs more information about our VLP can find it here. Thanks you for your time and cooperation. Have a great day!
