Mrs. Kris Wheat
Welcome to Northern Guilford Middle School,
I am your principal, Kris Wheat, and I feel both grateful and blessed to serve the students, teachers, and families of NGMS. I graduated from UNCG in 2001 with a degree in Middle Grades Education and have taught math at Jamestown Middle and Welborn Middle. In 2012, I was selected as Guilford County Schools' Middle School Teacher of the Year. I completed my Master’s in Educational Leadership at High Point University in 2013, and served as Assistant Principal at Northwest Middle School.
In 2015, I was named principal of Johnson Street Global Studies, leading the only K-8 school in Guilford County for 7 years. During my time as principal of JSGS, I completed the BB&T Leadership Institute; Mastering Leadership Dynamics for Educational Leaders. Our school faculty worked hard to increase our school letter grade, raised student proficiency by 25%, and Exceeded Expected Academic Growth for the past two consecutive years as measured by the NC End of Grade Testing.
I am excited about beginning this journey as a Northern Nighthawk! Northern Guilford Middle School is an excellent school with staff dedicated to our motto, "Expect Excellence Every Day!" I look forward to working with our staff, students, families, and communities to strengthen our Nighthawk Nation.
