Our Humble Beginnings

The very first school in North was held in a small tenant building with about one dozen pupils. Several years later Mr. John F. North gave a lot near the First Baptist Church for the location of a public school building. In 1902 the enrollment was 89 students and 2 teachers.

 In the spring of 1908 Mr. Sampson A Livingston gave two acres of land for a more centrally located school; this site is used today for the North Middle High School ( Bi-Centennial Celebration; published April 15, 1976).

 The current facility was constructed in 2002.


 Present Day

North Middle High School is one of the three high schools and one of the four middle schools in Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five. NMHS is a public school that serves approximately  students in grades six through twelve with 52.1 percent African-American, 47.2 percent white, and 1 percent of Hispanic heritage. These students come from the surrounding communities of Wolfton, Woodford, Livingston and Neeses.

 The faculty is comprised of dedicated educators who strive to provide all students with the best academic experience possible. North Middle High School's instructional faculty consists of 20 teachers, one media specialist, one guidance counselor, one career specialist, and two administrators. 

North Middle High School encourages all students to prepare for post-secondary education. We also prepare students for vocational careers by providing instruction through partnership with Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five's Technology Center.

North Middle High School is a Making Middle Grades Work and High Schools That Work site. All teachers are trained in the utilization of "best practices" to increase the academic success of each student. Students participate in the Accelerated Reader Program and the Accelerated Math Program to increase literacy and numeracy achievement levels. 

We are proud of all of the accomplishments and will continue to work hard every day to reach higher levels of success.
