My child is in 5th grade this year and probably has the worst teacher in the entire school. This teacher is new and used to be super nice when she was an aid. Her whole attitude has completely changed since she has become a teacher(permanent position) and is so overwhelmed by all the work she has to do. The principal is good and cares for the students, but I think he needs to pay more attention to who he is hiring and should not allow the teachers to yell and scream at the students.

My child has been attending attending Northwood since Kindergarten and now in the 6th grade. From my experience, there has always been great parent/teacher partnership. The principal is very attentive. It is true the upper grade teachers do not require the volunteers that the lower grades do, but I don't think it is because they are intentionally trying to distance themselves from parents. Overall, my child's experience throughout has been a very positive one.

I agree with the review from Aug 15,2011. Now 1 1/2 years later same story regarding excessive gift-giving parents and some overly involved parents that make it difficult for others to volunteer. Education system is good. My first child attended with the previous principal and now 2nd child with Dr.Payne. Big difference and better change. My only negative here is the parents volunteers has to be fair. By gift giving parents taking over the power and getting less chance for others to take part. If one parent is a room parent for once class for one child, give the chance to others for other classes instead of the same parent for both of his/her children classroom mom. I have been in the PTA before and last year and this year the main PTA members needs to be changed. We had great PTAs for last so many years.

I went to Northwood Elementary School from 1995-1997. The teachers are great and sincerely care about how well you perform. They develop relationships with parents and their students. I still keep in touch with them from time to time.


Posted March 30, 2012

The faculty and staff are dedicated to making Northwood Elementary the best school. Dr. Payne's leadership is strong and he is very personable. Our children have had excellent teachers and there's a real sense of community here. It's nice to see so many parents volunteering their time. Northwood Elementary is an exceptional school and we are so fortunate that our children have had a tremendous learning experience.

Upper-grade teachers distance themselves from parents: either they don't ask for parent volunteers, or they're not using them (except to file papers). Principal suffers from "excessive analysis:" he can provide a case study for every student and situation, leaving you feel like your child is just a number. They do not put children first, and there is no child/teacher/parent partnership with the school. There is no learning community here. My older children attended other Irvine elementary schools and this one leaves me cold.

Nice school, caring staff. My child has received support when & where needed. I would agree with the previous comment about the favoritism towards the kids of the excessive gift-giving parents. There are some overly involved parents that make it difficult for others to volunteer. And yes, it takes a "non-groupie" parent to know this. Overall, we enjoy Northwood and have had a successful experience.

Great school, with a very good principal. My kid has has a very good learning experience. There are some issues with a few parents who glorify kindergarten teachers to such a point that it looks and feels crazy. Also kids of parents, who regularly gift teachers or throw night out parties, get more recognition then deserving kids. Though not visible, you have to be a non-groupie parent to know this. Otherwise, the school is good. The standard of education is good. The above favoritism might be there in other schools as well, and might be a common thing elsewhere.

Our family has relocated a bit, and we have experience with 4 elementary schools. Northwood stands out as a fantastic school that lives it's values and offers outstanding academic instruction. Dr. Payne sets a great tone of accountability and respect with parents, teachers and students. Parents are involved and welcomming. Teachers and RSP staff work hard to develop the best in each student - even when talents are harder to access. Kudos to Northwood for being an outstanding place for children to succeed academically and personally.

I have a daughter in this school and have come to know the PTA, the Principle, and many of the teachers. This school is awesome. They really work harder than most to keep this school great. Its a national Blue Ribbon School, and a California Distinguished School

Both of my children attended 1st through 3rd grade at Northwood. Both of them had excellent teachers, especially Mrs. Fritsch (2nd) and Mrs. Peters (3rd). Now my children are in the Academically Advance Program (4-6 grd). I felt the teachers prepared them very well for this program. Dr. Payne, the principal, is a great addition to the school. He and the teachers working as a team have turn this school into an excellent school.

Teachers care about each child's success. They have gone out of their way to help students learn and succeed, including extra help in before school or after school sessions. Strong sense of family and caring within the community of students and parents. Dr. Payne, the principal, is open-minded, involved, and results oriented. School is a Blue Ribbon Award winner.

We have good experience in this school. We love our daughter's teacher and the Principal, Dr. Payne. He is a nice and hard working principal. His leadership has turned the school into an excellent school in Irvine district.

Excellent teachers. Teachers expect and often require a lot of parental involvement in child's school activities. This is one of the reasons children excel here. They also motivate the child to learn on their own (i.e. phonetic reading exercises), which builds their self-confidence.

Very good school. My son attended to a ELD class in first grade. Loved it. The teachers are very prepared so the children come out speaking English very fluently. The installations are ok. Good staff. The education in overall is great, they show the kids to have good manners. Like to share, raise their hands, to take care of themselves. It's a very good school.

I have had two children attend this school throughout their elementary years and although the school doesn't rank high in terms of standardized test scores and API I feel that their education was great. The teachers were willing to 'customize' their programs to help my one child who is very advanced for grade level and also support in a caring way my other child who struggles at grade level. I am concerned that this school has lower test scores as compared with the district and wonder if the high level of second-language learners affects this.

Northwood Elementary is a great place to be. The teachers are great, the pta is booming, and the school displays a very positive environment. The principal is 'hands on' and very involved with the students. I am very happy my two children attend this school and I wouldn't have them go anywhere else. I would love to see more parent involement, a lot of the same people are putting on the same activities.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
