Greetings from New Prairie Middle School!

We here at NPMS are very proud of our students, teachers, and parents.  New Prairie Middle School offers an excellent education in a modern, safe school with an emphasis on educating the “whole child”.  We are small enough to build those very important relationships between faculty and students, yet large enough to offer a great variety of learning experiences and activities.  New Prairie Middle School and the entire NPUSC community truly embrace a “Culture of Excellence” and we strive every day to do our best for our children. 

 

Yours in Education,

Jim Holifield, Principal
