Northfield Middle School

Empowering Middle School Learners in Grades 6–8

Northfield Middle School, situated on an expansive campus just south of downtown Northfield, has a longstanding tradition of academic excellence. The staff of more than 100 is led by Principal Greg Gelineau and Assistant Principal Michael O’Keefe.

Staff members are focused on offering a high quality, well-rounded education that strives to meet the specific needs of each student, empowering them in their educational journeys and inspiring their confidence.

In addition to the academic support students receive from educators, Northfield Middle School recognizes the tremendous benefits of mentor relationships, offering an acclaimed, results-oriented program that pairs a number of students with adults in the community who can provide friendship, encouragement and homework assistance.
