We are in the process of migrating to a new and improved host for our district website.  We expect the conversion to the new site to happen in the next month.  Until then, individual school websites have not been updated.  If you have questions and cannot find the answer on the  district website, please contact the individual schools or the Office of the Superintendent at (413) 776-1458.


SuperintendentOn behalf of the students, faculty, administration and School Committee, I would like to welcome you to the North Adams Public Schools home page.

The mission of the North Adams Public Schools is to provide all students with the values, knowledge, and skills needed to reach their full potential, with the ultimate goal of becoming lifelong learners and productive members of the 21st Century. As a district, we are committed to providing a safe environment in which all individuals embrace the core values of diversity, inclusiveness, shared community responsibility, breadth of learning, and continuous growth and improvement.

I hope you find this site informative and useful. If you are in need of further information please feel free to contact me at any time.
