Northwest Middle School

The Direction of Greatness

Welcome to NWKMS

  • Dan Brooks

     We are excited to have you and your student as part of Northwest Kidder Middle School.  Our staff has been working very hard to prepare for the return of our Kind, Motivated, and Successful (KMS) students and we look forward to meeting our new sixth graders!

        We also would like to welcome and introduce our new Assistant Principal, Dale Stroede.  Dale comes to us with a lot of knowledge about our students and way of life here at Kidder Middle School, since we have had the privilege of having him teach Special Education at Northwest for 16 years.  Dale graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with his Masters of Education Leadership and is looking forward to his new role in Leadership with our school and community.  

        For those of you that are new to our building, we look forward to getting to know you.  We are thrilled that you will be part of our Northwest Middle School family and will contribute to our excellent academic, athletic and fine arts programs.  Also, please make sure that you check our school website, or like our page on Facebook under Northwest Kidder Middle School so that we can send you updates of all the great things happening at the middle school and upcoming events that you will not want to miss.  

         Student academic success is the main goal of our entire staff.  We have set high expectations, and are working diligently to ensure that all of our students will reach their highest potential and offer assistance to those that need it.  However, students and staff cannot do it alone, we need and welcome parents’ positive commitment to their child’s education.

         I encourage you to get involved with your child’s school activities this year.  Visit our school, attend a concert or athletic performance, call or email your child’s teacher, check PowerSchool daily or attend parent conferences, are all great ways you can be involved.  We encourage you to let us know how to better serve your children.  I can be reached at (517) 817-4703 or by email at  We are looking forward to a terrific school year!
