My daughter has been Nordstrom now for 2 years. We have really enjoyed both her teachers. They have pushed her in all the right ways to achieve her potential. I've never encountered a staff person that was not helpful with my needs. There is physical education, a multi-purpose room that is used as a cafeteria, a library, and a computer lab. There are also great after school activities and the CDC on site is great. Not every school is going to fit for every child or parent, but saying that the entire school and all the teachers and administration are weak is not a fair assessment.

I have to agree with the parent who stated that Nordstrom is great for "flawless" children, but the "flawed" children need not apply. I have had the same experience in dealing with this school. My observation is that if they want the children to be perfect, the administration and staff should be perfect as well. Sadly, this is not the case. Though much of the staff and the principal are mediocre at best, some of these teachers seem to have elevated themselves in their minds, and behave as if they are professors, tenured and published, working at an Ivy League University. The current Principal behaves as if she is the Dean of said University. It is off-putting as a parent to deal with this kind of mindset. The Principal and her teachers need to get a grip and realize they are nothing more than what and who they are, employees of Morgan Hill School District working in a little elementary school in Cowtown Morgan Hill.

I have had contact with more than a few parents that have gone to the school and ultimately the district regarding children with learning and/or attention issues. In a word, PATHETIC! Everyone of the parents we know were put through months of paperwork and excuses only to be told "we do not have the resources to help you. Only the flawless children need to attend here! The Morgan Hill District is blind in one eye and cannot see out of the other. With the principal involved, it's even worse.

As a parent with a special needs child, I've worked with both the Special Day Class teacher and the Resource teacher. The SDC class teacher is wonderful. The Resource teacher is difficult to work with and resorts to underhanded tactics to keep her position within the school. I would not recommend this school to a parent who has a resource student.

Please Help. Need advice. My family and I are moving to Motgan Hill. Is it true that this school does not have a cafeteria, Phys Ed class and a not really there library? I am concerned I may need to look at private schools. Thank you, Potential parent.


Posted July 25, 2013

This school is not about the kids, it's about the socialite parents! The principal is out of touch and aloof! The teachers are all burned out! No PE, no cafeteria , a poor library and NO PLACE TO EVEN SIT AND EAT! Don't do it !

I'm so sorry to read that one parent had such a bad experience with a certain teacher. After reading their 3 negative reviews, I can see that they are very upset. However, with my experience at Nordstrom school with all the teachers and parents that I've met so far, I must say that I am very impressed and pleased with what I see. The teachers are great and very caring and kind. They challenge each child to their need and ability. (If you don't think they are being challenged, then ask the teacher to do more) Communication is key and I have seen the teachers to be very receptive. I am also very pleased with the huge amount of parent involvement. Teachers are very appreciative and welcoming for parents volunteers. There is something for everyone...all you need to do is ask.

I am the parent of a kinder student and am extremely impressed thus far with what is happening in my childs kinder classroom and with the school in general. I am impressed with the speed at which my child is learning and he lives going to school. His teacher is terrific-firm but caring. The teachers are dedicated to helping their students learn and succeed. Patent involvement is huge at this school which is amazing and rare. This is a fantastic public school!!

This school is Okay at best as far as academics are concerned.The union protects bad teachers that have seniority. If your excuse for yelling at an 8 year old, making them cry and trying to break their spirit is that your "Italian" and "that's just how Italians talk," then you have no business teaching! And then to meet with the principal who apparently can do nothing about it!!! There are no consequences for the teachers who are vicious to students.I have had three children attend this school through the last ten years and we've had our ups and downs with the teachers. Some have been great, others should not be teaching! I think that if my 2cnd grader has more homework than my child in high school, theirs a problem! I understand their are quotas teachers need to meet but some of them should really reevaluate why they they became teachers in the first place! To make a positive impact in a students life or a negative one! There does seem to be a lot of bullying (from teachers, as well as students) and stuck up kids here, and the parents also have their cliques. But their have been some kind parents who seem genuine. Money talks around here so if you have it, your in!

All the teachers are afraid of the incompetent principle. Everyone covers for everyone. Horrible politics with mothers that have nothing to do or anywhere to go. Bad place!

This school was not a good fit for our family. Our son is ADD. He also has some spectrum challenges. These challenges led him to have issues with other children that resulted in extreme isolation & bullying. We were unaware of it for months until I attended a school function where I saw it myself. After the situation was investigated by the principle, the teacher sent me an apology letter because her neglect of the situation was so unacceptable. We would only find out about things once it was in crisis mode. The teachers were often hostile & defensive once we were involved. It was suggested that our son's situation was our son's fault because he was annoying. We even had a teacher that told our son in front of his class that he was the worst student he had ever had. We contacted the principle and had a meeting with the principle and teacher. The teacher was so hostile, he even admitted he said it, but also made it clear he had no intention of apologizing or admitting to any wrong doing. The principle apologized for his behavior after he was gone. She also said that often times the union protects teachers in CA from consequences, so there was nothing she could do about it.

My daughter transferred into this school and they were wonderful about getting her acclimated. The teachers are very good and the administration is very responsive. A great school!


Posted May 29, 2011

My daughter attended Nordstrom school and had a wonderful experience. She especially enjoyed the annual "egyptian museum" project. The staff takes great pride in the school and its reputation. There are many parents involved in helping out and it stands out in the Morgan Hill community. I highly recommend this school.

Amazing school!! The entire staff from top to bottom; Principal to office staff to teachers are all phenomenal! If you can get your children in to this school, I highly recommend it. The teachers have all done an amazing job at making sure my son has gotten the best education possible for the last two years, and the rest of the staff have all been wonderful to deal with. Parent involvement is also very high at Nordstrom.

The teachers are great and my kids love the school. However the principal is not good at all. She shows favoritism and lacks communication skills. She tells you what you want to hear but does not act on it. I hope for the schools sake they get a compitant principal next year!!

I an realy surprise of some of the comment that are being made . Are you there at the school or are you just listening to your friends and following what they are saying . It is really easy to believe your frinds and your kids untill you see it for your selfs . Maybe spend more time at the school and see things for your selfs. This is a great school from our principal to the yard duties . They are all great .

My kids go to this school - Their experience has been fantastic!! The teachers are very committed to the child's success. The principal is very approachable, and very involved with the students. She has done an outstanding job, and I am surprised why some of the reviewers have posted negative comments. I have only nice things to day about the principal and the teachers.

Teachers are fantastic! Parent involvement way above average. Students are happy and great to work with but I have to agree with comments about the principal. Very inconsistent. Tells you what you want to hear but actually dealing with underlying issues is not done. Shows favortism. I feel Nordstrom has lost several good teachers because of poor management.

School is great, majority of the teachers are great. The principal is not great. She is not consistent with discipline and seems to make up rules as she goes. She explains a rule to me but the teachers do not even know about it. Communication between the teachers and principal is key and the school seems to lack the communication from the principal. Principal has poor communication skills and most of the time has a poor attitude, today she walked away from a conversation making a rude and unnecessary comment. I, along with many others are glad this is our last year at this school only due to the principal. I do not believe the principal she be in the position that she is in .

Principal is unkind and inconsistent. Teachers are great especially some of the 6th grade teachers. The principal has no place working around children or parents.

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.
