Welcome to NMS

  • Welcome to New Market School, Home of the Raiders!   This new school year begins with a continued focus on excellence and an educational program promoting student achievement. New Market is one of twenty-eight schools in the Madison County School District. Our school has approximately 400 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade.

    I am excited about returning for my sixth year as principal at New Market.  Being a part of the New Market School family for over twenty years has been the best! I am so excited about the upcoming school year!

    At our school we are committed to ensuring that everyone is treated with respect and that students reach deep levels of profound learning through relevant, engaging learning experiences. Our staff of extraordinary teachers, paraprofessionals, and office personnel arrives each day prepared to give their best to our students, families and school.

    There is no question about it - success at school begins at home, which is one of the main reasons our school theme is “Your Journey Begins at Home”.  The close partnership between home and school is one of the exceptional strengths at New Market School.  We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students.  Learning is not an easy process!  It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by everyone; the teacher, the parents, the principal, but most importantly the student.  Our students’ success is the focus all we do.

    Sincere Wishes and Warmest Regards,
    Keri Smith
