Principal's MessageWelcome to the website for Northridge Middle School, home of the Cougars. I am Benjamin Moore, the Principal.
Northridge Middle School is a dynamic middle school located in Montgomery County serving 500 students in grades sixth through eighth. We follow the trimester model which allows our students more instructional time in the core areas of Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. Students take 5 classes a day for 12 weeks and spend 65 minutes in each class. This allows for more instruction in each class over the course of the school year. Our students also have the opportunity to take a variety of exploratory classes such as music, PE, band, media and a host of other classes. In addition, we offer a student resource time each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:00-3:40 for students to get one on one help from their teachers or participate in clubs and other activities. We offer a second transportation route home for these students. This has allowed our students to participate in more activities and get more in-depth help from their teachers without having to worry about transportation.
We strive to create an environment where each and every student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success. We want your child’s middle school years to be engaging, challenging, interesting, and enjoyable. Teachers and staff work diligently to foster a school climate that nurtures affective and cognitive development. The Northridge Middle School family believes that success at school is achieved in partnership with students and their parents.
With all of us working together, we can help to make these great years of personal growth for your child and continue the strong tradition of excellence at Northridge Middle School.

Authenticate learning so that students can use 21st Century Skills to solve real world problems.
Northridge will use technology to support 21st Century Skills in our curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to develop these skills in all academic content areas. The skill set needed for today’s learners includes:
-Creativity and Innovation
-Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
-Communication and Collaboration
-ICT (Information, Communications and Technology) Literacy
Create self-paced, individualized learning experiences for students.
Northridge students will have access and use technology to remediate and enrich learning opportunities. Students will have access to software that individualizes assignments based on their specific needs.
Create learning experiences outside of the classroom and school hours.
Students will use technology to have access to information inside and outside of the classroom. Teachers will be able to capitalize on teachable moments to enhance instruction. Students will have access to technology at home to continue their learning experience outside of the school.
Increase communication between the school and home to maximize learning and growth.
Students and staff will use devices to enhance communication between the school and home. Teachers will have the opportunity to provide academic feedback on line. Students will be able to access materials at home and use resources outside of the school.
Promote a digital citizenship culture of learners.
There are many ways that technology enhances learning for students. As students increase their access and use of technology, they need to understand the additional responsibilities that are essential. Northridge will ensure that students are taught a digital citizenship curriculum that shows students how to responsibly use their devices.
