Principal's Message

Principal Dr. H.P. Hyder, III

Welcome to Northbrook Middle School – Home of the Knights!  I am Dr. H.P. Hyder, III, your Proud Knight Principal.  This marks my 24th year in education and my 2nd year at Northbrook M.S.  I am a graduate of the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I am also a proud alumnus of Prairie View A&M University where I attained a Master of Education in Educational Administration and a Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership.

I am fortunate to have made education my career since college.  I started my career in Aldine ISD as a middle school math teacher.  I also served as an assistant and associate principal in Aldine ISD and Spring ISD before accepting my first principalship in Sheldon ISD in 2010.  I returned to Spring ISD in 2013 to lead Bammel Middle School.  During the 2016-2017 school year, I ventured to the district office to serve as the Director of Academic Support Services.  Because I missed the students so much, I returned to the campus level to lead Heritage Elementary School for almost 2 years before transitioning back to Bammel Middle School.

I am excited and igKNIGHTed by the possibilities for the 2021-2022 school year.  Last year, our Guiding Coalition adopted the NMS Guiding Principles.

As your principal, I commit to using these guiding principles to igKNIGHT a culture of learning and celebration.  I challenge you to partner with us to make this the best school year yet for NMS.  

I encourage you to connect with us as a partner in your child’s education.  You may connect with us by joining our PTA, following us on Twitter (@NorthbrookMS), maintaining open lines of communication with your child’s teachers, and attending all parent meetings.  I know our partnership will propel our students to higher levels of success.

I am honored to serve as your child’s instructional leader! I look forward to meeting you at our campus events.  Thank you for stopping by our campus webpage!  We will be sure to keep it updated with campus happenings.
