I'm sorry but this school is horrible at hiring teachers. When my child was in fourth grade her paper was ripped to pieces just for doing it in class. The teacher spent all of her time texting in class while she was supposed to be teaching. Also she spent time telling stories all day.
I feel as though my daughter should be wearing a uniform to Northern Lights but thats just one persons opinion and when it comes down to it, it never hurts to see both sides of the spectrum. I like my hats and hoodies. Definite double standard when it comes to allowing individual expression at that school. Yes, they hold their students accountable and don't put up with slackers or unmotivated families because when your kids do start going here, you as a parent will be helping every night with homework. I only gave them three stars because of lack of welcoming I felt from just about all the staff. I realize the school is strict but there is no reason the staff should have no care or concern in the way they talk to you or your child. Yes, they do teach respect, but they won't be any nurturing involved in teaching respect. It feels more like 'YOU WILL RESPECT ME OR ELSE' Thats the ONE thing this school lacks is 'CARE AND CONCERN'... they have more a mentality of 'MOVE IT LOSE IT' so be prepared for a competitive atmosphere that Commends and Recognizes good grades and following everyone else. This is not a school that builds individualism and uniqueness.
Great school, The school atmosphere is one of caring and trust, which enhances the learning environment. My child love her school and their teachers.
I personally love this school. The staff is very involved and it shows that they care about my children and want them to succeed.
The teachers at this school are excellent. The Principal is very involved, available and supportive.
Besided focus on creating a strong academic foundation for future learning, the school strives to teach the students to respect themselves and to respect others.
They are committed to teaching the children not only the foundations of education but also patriotism and personal responsibility.
Northern Lights ABC School it's the best school in town, have the best teachers and have a great environment for the students.
NLABC is the best school in the state, We have the best teachers and the greatest staff in the city. I have to give a very special thanks and appreciation to Mrs. Nishimuri.She cares for each student she teaches and she has a dedication to them and their parents. She needs to be recognized as the best teacher of the year.
It teaches 13 core values that will help children succeed in life. It promotes positive learning by encouraging hard work and earning awards for success. The teachers are awesome! They love kids, work hard, but have fun too. I loooove Northern Lights ABC!
It is a relief to see a school that has conservative, traditional values with such high expectations of its students.
Parent participation is huge which, I believe, helps the children to learn and grow. My son is in kindergarten and the program for him is teaching him responsibility, being a good citizen and learning for life!
With the exception of the secretaries NLABC is a great school with the best teachers who really love thier jobs!!
NLABC school emphasis on strict discipline and good moral character building sets the stage for a condusive learning environment and makes the child an asset to society. Their high standard on academics and parents involvement in the curriculum sets this school a part from the rest.
Northern Lights ABC school teaches respect and disipline along with academics; pricipals our country is in need of.
Love, love, love this school. My little boy just started Kindergarten here and it is a perfect fit. Very well organized and the teachers are top-notch! Love the 1/2 day kindergarten so much! Highly recommend it!
I love my son's school! So far, I'm very impressed and pleasantly surprised with the faculty and staff, the high curriculum standards, and their Patriotic views. Couldn't be happier!
NLABC is an optional school that re-inforces good behavior, along with important educational life skills. They have a complex grading system that encourages great study habbits as well as high expectations for every single student. There is a great deal of helpful PTA /Staff members. I love walking into that school and observing the behavior of the students walking in a straight line down the hall with their hands by their side, it makes me realize how lucky my daughter is to attend Northern Lights ABC. It is just as big of a commitment for the parents as it is for the children attending, which is great because it filters out anyone who isn't committed to getting an excellent education. The statistics that come from prior students of Northern Lights ABC are fantastic!
I love Northern Lights ABC School because my daughter is learning, not only, academically but also how important it is to become a great citizen. They are giving her a wonderful base to becoming a successful and well rounded person.
NLABC is full of professionals and parents who are committed to securing a sound educational foundation for our kids. What are thought of as old-fashioned fundamentals of reading, writing and math are the pillars of what becomes for most of these kids a love of life-long learning.
