Mission: At Elkhorn North Ridge Middle School, students will learn to critically navigate the middle school classroom and our complex world in order to build a foundation for high levels of achievement.

Welcome to Elkhorn North Ridge Middle School – Home of the Nighthawks! We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment in which students are our fundamental priority. We understand the importance of the middle-grade years in which students build a foundation for high achievement and learn to navigate the complexities of adolescence in a constantly changing world.


Academic programming at ENRMS consists of a solid core curriculum in reading, math, science, history, and language arts.  In all areas, we work collaboratively to challenge and encourage students to learn at their highest level.  To complement the core curriculum, student schedules include exploratory classes comprised of world languages, vocal music, instrumental music, art, computer applications, family consumer science, industrial technology and speech and drama.  Students are provided multiple opportunities to experience these courses on a rotating or elective basis.  In addition to rigorous coursework, Elkhorn North Ridge Middle School offers a full range of activities and athletics through which students learn the values of persistence, hard work, and contributing to a team; all characteristics that enhance academic achievement.


At ENRMS, we engage in instructional best practice and utilize data to drive our decisions. We are committed to maintaining high expectations and supporting our students to meet those expectations. We believe in protecting the dignity of all stakeholders and creating an inclusive and respectful culture.
