  • Ms. Nicole Campbell Russo - Principal 

    It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the principal of Veterans Middle School.     My dedication to this school district runs deep, as I, myself, am a proud graduate of North Arlington School District. In my many years of academic experience in North Arlington Public Schools, the strong staff, parental support, and community input have always been at the heart of our success.

    My educational and administrative career began in Essex Fells School District. I had the opportunity to develop a strong background in education and attain a wealth of administrative experience to offer the teachers, students, and parents.

    Veterans Middle School is an exciting place for our students! I am delighted to work with a staff who is devoted to their professional growth and development.   It is enriching to see how dedicated the teachers are to creating a learning environment where students are encouraged to learn and grow.  Your involvement as a parent is an essential part of your child's successful Middle School experience and continues to contribute to the overall school culture of VMS. In this spirit, the staff and I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year. Please join me in making this a fantastic school year for our students!
