Nord Middle School

One Team...One Goal

Greetings from Walter G. Nord School!  On behalf of the entire faculty, we'd like to extend a most sincere "Welcome" to you and your family.  Together, we look forward to another great year of education and growth.

Our mission at Walter G. Nord School is to continue building upon the strong foundation our colleagues at Powers have been developing in our students over the past four years in preparation for, not only their futures at AJH and Marion L. Steele, but their lives and careers as capable, self-driven, confident adults.

Our building is open to students at 8:15am and our school day begins promptly at 8:40am.  Car riders and walkers begin dismissal at 3:20pm.  Busses will depart shortly after.  Office hours are 7:30am until 4:00pm.

Meet Our Principal


Welcome!  My name is Jill Jiovanazzo and I am thrilled to be working along side such a strong group of educators while being an active participant in the education of the children of Amherst.  I am very excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year with the goal of the relentless pursuit of excellence for ALL!
