Northview Middle Re-Designated

as "School to Watch"


The educational team at Northview Middle School, one of nine schools with Hickory Public Schools, recently received notification that the school has been re-designated as a School to Watch. The announcement came from School to Watch State Co-Directors, Dr. Chris Cook, from Appalachian State University, and Jennifer L.H. Hall, from Durham Public Schools.


Based on the school's many strengths, including focus on data analysis, school-wide communication systems, and the response to COVID-19, the Northview Middle School team is being celebrated for demonstrating academic excellence, developmental responsiveness, social equity, and organizational structures that support the success of all students.


"The Schools to Watch re-designation is truly a feather in the cap of Northview Middle School," said Northview Principal, Robert Brown.  "The faculty and staff of the school have done an absolutely amazing job of providing a first-class education for all of our students. The teachers have made tremendous efforts to engage students in the educational process, maintain an extremely warm and positive school culture, and use a variety of data to enhance educational outcomes for all students. To say that I am proud of the school and the faculty and staff is a vast understatement. Each day, I am amazed at what they accomplish while operating in a pandemic that has created a decidedly less than ideal environment."


Northview Middle provides excellence in education for all students, according to HPS Superintendent, Dr. Robbie Adell. "Starting in 2014, the school was first recognized as a School to Watch under the leadership of Principal Stephanie Dischiavi, followed with a re-designation in 2017 under Principal Nala Sadler-Sherrill. And with this most recent re-designation, we are tremendously proud that outstanding achievements continue to move forward under the leadership of Principal Robert Brown," said Adell.


In celebration of the school's re-designation and recognition, Principal Brown provided surprise treats for his faculty and staff. (note photo)
