Northwestern Middle School


Thank you Community and Friends for a great celebration of our Gym Floor Dedication on Friday, September 18, 2015. 

"Al Leibert Court" 


Mission Statement:

          Northwestern STEM educates a diverse population with a challenging curriculum that prepares them to prosper in a multicultural society.

Vision Statement:

          Northwestern STEM will be highly regarded for its academic excellence and serve as the school of choice for middle school in the greater Battle Creek community.

Message from the Principal:

Special Announcement: Please join us Friday, September 17th at 1:45 in the Gymnasium to dedicate the gym floor in honor of Coach Al Leibert – “Al Leibert Court”. Community and guest please enter through the Pool and Gymnasium Entrance towards the football fields.

As we approach the end of September we have had an amazing start to the school year! Reminder the full day of school is 7:35 to 2:40 as we are doing breakfast in the classroom.

New experiences at Northwestern STEM Middle School:

Breakfast in the classroom will be held in every student’s advisory (1st hour) class. In advisory students will learn charter education through our True Success curriculum. September is Respect.

Math and English Academic support classes are a mandatory requirement for students who have been identified as being in need of additional math and/or reading supports.

Our procedures for lockers and transitions to classes have helped create more efficient and quieter hallway experiences. The implementation of CHAMPS in every classroom has also created a consistent vocabulary for teaching classroom expectations that each student experiences in every classroom. We will begin implementing our tardy tracking system on 9/16/2015 and parents will be informed of any child struggling to attend class on-time.

If you would like to visit a classroom, please contact the main office 965-9607 and/or the teacher so we can accommodate your needs. We request a 24 hour notice to ensure a smooth observation process.

MAP Testing: September 14th to October 9th for Math and Reading

CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.

PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.

MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
