    My daughter is academically challenged. What has impressed me most about this school is the quality of the teachers and how hard they have worked to meet my daughter's needs. She has made amazing progress during the last two and half years she has attended NMB Middle. The principal is outstanding. The faculty is excellent. The facilities and atmosphere at the school are super.

    North Myrtle Beach Middle School may get better now that they have a new principal. Well now that they have a new Principal I am sure things will change. She is a very strong leader and I am hopeful that she will bring North Myrtle Beach Middle up to the standards we should of been reaching years ago.
