Welcome to Northfield Elementary - Where Kids Come First

A Message from Dr. Gonyea - Principal

Welcome to Northfield Elementary, a school steeped in excellence and solid traditions.  Our school's purpose is to serve our community by developing the future leaders of Murfreesboro.  Our primary philosophy at Northfield is that "Kids Come First".  This philosophy shapes every decision we make and gives us a foundation of excellence in all we do.  At Northfield, we want to cultivate a strong sense of community, as this job is too important to do alone.  We invite our parents and community leaders to join us in this critical mission. 

As your principal, I am committed to ensuring your student(s) receive a high quality education that encompasses so much more than just basic core academics.  Our solid team of faculty and staff will focus on your "Whole Child" and work to develop a well rounded student that can be successful in any area they pursue.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with any ideas or concerns that you might have.  I look forward to working with you and your student(s) as they navigate their elementary school years.  Together, we will do amazing things.


Dr. Mark J. Gonyea
