Principal's Welcome
Dear GMS North Families,

I am very pleased to welcome you to Geneva Middle School North! As a staff, we look forward to working with you to help prepare your child for a successful future.

One of the ways we have been working to achieve this goal is in becoming a Professional Learning Community to implement the Common Core State Standards. The common units of study and common assessments our teachers are developing and refining serve to elevate the level of academic rigor in our curriculum and instruction. I am so thankful for the excellent work our staff has accomplished to improve learning and teaching for our students through the PLC process.

I am looking forward working with you on behalf of our students.
