    • North Marion Middle School

    Striving for academic excellence in student performance.


    North Marion Middle school will provide a quality academic program that prepares students to become responsible and successful in our global society.


    North Marion Middle School is located in the northern end of Marion County and students live in the surrounding communities. The population for the 2011-2012 school year is 803 students. The racial/ethnic composition is 49% Caucasian, 31% African American, 15% Hispanic and 5% other racial and ethnic groups. Seventy-five percent of the students qualify for free/reduced lunches, which makes our school a Title I school.


    The school staff consists of three administrators, 60 instructional staff members and 36 support staff members. 76% of the instructional staff is Majority and 24% are Minority.


    A primary academic goal is for students to be proficient in reading, mathematics, science, and writing as measured by the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Grade level teachers will determine specific strategies to meet these goals.


    Computers are in every classroom and Internet access is available to every teacher. In addition, we have a 32-station computer lab for student use. We have implemented a 21 station Success Maker Learning Lab for students who need remediation.


    North Marion Middle recognizes the critical contribution made by its parents and will work with them to ensure student success. These objectives are a result from a needs assessment as determined by staff, parent, and student surveys, as well as FCAT scores.


    North Marion Middle's school colors are gold and garnet. Our mascot is a colt.


    Our business partner is Ocala Fiber.
