Northwest Middle School is located in northwestern Carroll County and serves approximately 510 sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. This website is designed to provide the students, families, and teachers of Northwest Middle School access to information about school events as well as general information.




The Carroll County Public School System is now using the AlertNow Rapid Communication Service to provide parents with information from their child's schools and the school system.  AlertNow replaces eSchoolnewsletter and is capable of delivering both e-mails and phone alerts at no charge to parents.  You do not have to sign up for the new system.  All information is taken from emergency procedure cards.  We are excited about the new capabilities AlertNow offers and believe it will greatly enhance our communication with parents and our school communities.
