Description

North Garner Middle School operates on the year-round calendar. Students at the year-round schools are divided into four groups, called tracks, with each track having its own calendar. In a year-round middle school, the traditional 180-day school year is divided into nine-week quarters with a three week break at the end of each quarter. Students are in school the same number of days as their counterparts in traditional schools. Their days are simply redistributed throughout the year. The reorganized schedule is called a 45/15 - 45 days in school, 15 days off.
Year-round schools provide a more continuous learning process. Since students do not have long summer vacations, major reviewing in the fall is eliminated. Students and teachers are more energized throughout the year due to regular breaks. The three-week breaks provide frequent enrichment and remedial opportunities for students during the year.

North Garner's instructional program is called D.A.T.A., which stands for Daily Attention to Achievement. It is designed to ensure that teachers and students are focused on teaching and learning daily. We encourage students to question, explore and discover the world from various perspectives. We offer exciting elective classes such as, Spanish, Technology News, College Preparatory Success, Career Decisions, Band, Chorus, Drama, Business Technology, Art and classes designed to meet educational needs. Our students also have the opportunity to participate in clubs like FCCLA, Yearbook, Newspaper, Geography Bee, Beta Club, Step Team, Jazz Band and Student Council.

NGMS provides a student-centered environment that helps young adolescents grow and reach their greatest potential. It is a community school where students are excited to attend and parents are proud to send their children!!





Curriculum: STEM Schools Collaborative Network

Do you want your student to be an inventor, scientist, architect or astronaut? The foundation of learning for these high-tech jobs of tomorrow begins with four letters - S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The WCPSS STEM Schools Collaborative Network is a group of 17 schools, dedicated to enhanced strategic planning, professional development, programming and community advocacy around advancements in science and technology.

These schools benefit from a regional and statewide network of shared instructional opportunities and connections to local, state and national leaders focused on the STEM curriculum.

Each school will have:



  • Expert Technology Facilitators

  • Interactive lessons that explore STEM concepts

  • Digital-age learning environments

  • iPad carts (30 iPads) for each grade level

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Southeast Transportation Office.
