I was a recent student of this school 3 years ago it wasn't the best school and wasn't the worst. Many of the students attending the school were very out of control. I am now finishing up 8 grade at desert Christian middle school and my parents told me I am much more behaved and taught well in desert Christian compared to jack Northrop.
I was previously a teacher at this school and it was dreadful. The facilities were not adequate (I had too small of a classroom for the 32 5th graders I had) and support from the administration was not supportive. Discipline at this school was out of control.
I have 2 of by boys in this school. I love there teacher they are very concern and notify me of any issues at the time not 1 month later like in Tierra Bonita elem
My daughter has attended Jack Northrop for 3 years, now going on her 4th year. We absolutely love it! The teachers are awesome, the duty aides are very helpful and always around, and the Principal herself is all over campus. She makes sure that the school runs smoothly and has no tolerance for trouble makers at her school, or for disrespectful parents! She is always willing to work with any family she can to ensure that each child has the best learning experience that they can. I am looking forward to another Great year @ Jack Northrop!
I have 3 kids that go to Jack Northrop. If I had to go to another school in this town I would home school my kids. This is a school where my kids are safe and and taught well. I have never had a problem with the teachers and if I do I know for a fact they would listen to me and work with me. The principle has made herself available to everyone more than I can imagine any other principle ever. I never saw my principle growing up, he was never available, I see this principle everywhere. She works very hard and has a great team in the office staff. Every where I look there is a duty aide and the school is very clean and kept up and cared for by the janitors and staff. I will always appreciate Jack Northrop for a great education.
This school has been such a huge disappointment. There is no structure in the class room, academics are very poor, the staff that I have encountered are very uphelpful and rude. The duty aids are no where to be found. This school is an absolute disaster.
I really like Jack Northrop Elementary School for my kids. The principal and teachers make a great team to teach and discipline the kids. My kids are always excited to go to school. They have learned a lot!
Our daughter attended JN. Both teachers she had were complacent, disinterested and seemed to focus primarily on discipline rather than actual teaching. Test scores seem to be the primary drive for teachers at this school however they are still sadly missing the mark year after year.
As far as I am concerned this school lacks the willingness to work with children with learning disibilities. There so called student studies are the biggest joke with 0 outcome as to keeping to a plan of action.
At jack northrop elementary school the quality of academic programs avalabilitiy is severally lacking or non exsistant! I have three school age children in which two attend j.N.E and have since they began school. There is a gross lack of academic programs at j.N.E available to this date. I give the teachers high props as they are awesome and do their best to insure that the children have a positive as well as educational academic venture. I do offer a red flag warning to parents of children whom may require assistance in learning.
My son has been a student at Jack Northrop Elem for 3 years now, and I must say that every year he is there I am very pleased. The teachers are focused, determined to maintain structure in their classes and so motivated in always for our children. The environment is friendly and cheerful. The campus is wonderful, neat and clean. You cannot go wrong at this school.
Both my children attended this school and one child is still there. This school is a huge disappointment. It is a school where the teachers come first not our children and each teacher covering for the other teacher. Their duty aides are of no help to the children, when one can be found to help a child. The principal is extremely unhelpful, when there, and chooses teachers first. Out of the seven teachers my children have had while attending this school, there has been one that I have not had problems with and not had to correct the work they have sent home for my child to do. Stay away if you can.
