Sign In

Located in the historic Crabapple community in the northwestern corner of Fulton County, Northwestern Middle School (NMS) was established in 1996. It was named for Northwestern Elementary School, which served area students from 1933 until its closing in 1992. The newest Northwestern opened with a sense of tradition as well as a vision toward the future.

The school serves sixth, seventh, and eighth graders who live in the communities of Roswell, Alpharetta, and Milton. The school was designed for a capacity of 1325 and it opened with 1282 students. Northwestern now has a student body of approximately 1340.

School Office Hours: 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.

Parents dropping off items for students:

To reduce the number of interruptions during class time, parents that are dropping off forgotten items at home are asked to please write their child’s name on the message board (outside the front office doors) and leave the item in the office for student pick-up in between classes. We will only page into classrooms for student checkout and transportation issues. We appreciate your help as this will minimize the interruptions to class.

Lost and Found is located in the 600 hall.  Students may stop by before school at 8:30 a.m. to pick up any of their lost items.
