Principal's Message

Thank You Faculty & Staff for making this one of the most amazing school openings I have ever experienced! Special Shout-Out to the front office staff for all of their hard work. The past two weeks, I have watched everyone give 110% throughout the hallways of North Metro Academy. Everyone has given so much of themselves for the students. I'm excited about the great work we are going to do this year. The following words continue to inspire me and the work that we do here, and I want to share them with you:


I've only just a minute,

Only sixty seconds in it.

Forced upon me, can’t refuse it,

Didn’t seek it, didn’t choose it,

But it’s up to me to use it.

I must suffer if I lose it,

Give an account if I abuse it,

Just a tiny little minute,

But eternity is in it.

-Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
