NMS History

Neelsville MS has a short but interesting history. Our facility was actually constructed in 1981; another school used the building for fifteen years, then moved in 1996 to a new building about three miles away. Our staff and students moved into the facility in the summer of 1996, and the building got a fresh coat of paint and a new look to welcome the new occupants. The name of our school was taken from a small community named Neelsville that used to exist in the area where our school now resides. Neelsville Middle School was dedicated to the students and community it serves on May 18, 1997. We are in the Watkins Mill and Clarksburg clusters of schools, with our students coming fromDaly ES,South Lake ES,Stedwick ES, andFox Chapel ESand going toWatkins Mill HSandClarksburg HSin the ninth grade.
