I am so happy with this school!!! My child comes from a private school and I'm so upset to find out how behind my child was. Over here he is so so happy and gets academically challenge to his potential. The staff is so nice, but the principal is EXCELLENT!!!! This is now the #1 school in San Bernardino. The science program is great! Overall this is a wonderful school!!
I am a teacher at North Verdemont. I have taught in this district for 17 years. I taught at Warm Springs (one of the lowest performing) and Palm Avenue (one of the highest performing) schools before North Verdemont. As soon as I entered the campus my first day here, I felt the difference. The children were calmer and happier. I quickly found that this is the result of more nurturing teachers who really care about the whole child. I have taught from 1st through 6th grades in my career. The motto of every teacher, even when casually discussing the students in the teachers' lounge, is "How is this good for the student?" I love the professionalism and team spirit at this school. I intend to teach here until I retire.
I was a student teacher at North Verdemont, and I've subbed all over San Bernardino. This is a great school and there are some great teachers there. my master teacher was dedicated and experienced and knew how to engage students and keep them interested in the subject matter. I learned a great deal from her and hope to model my class after hers.
my sons are about to start there in aug 2011 and I was just reviewing it. thanks
This school has an awesome prinicipal! He is always willing too listen to our concerns and approach them immediatley.
My son was in Miss. Verrett's kindergarten class, we loved her! he learned so much in that year, and she is such a nice smart teacher! anyone who gets Miss Verrett is a lucky student! she is awesome!
I was so displeased with this school, I got my children transfers to another school! My kids absolutley hated it there. They felt like they were in prison. The rules are so harsh for such small kids, they're only elementary students. I tried talking to the principal, but she made up every excuse possible. I was so excited to hear that the principal was leaving. I am sorry, but she is the schools biggest problem. I did like the teachers, they seemed very helpful.
What a great school! Teachers and staff alike are very friendly and courteous. I could not ask for a better school for my daughter to go to. From Kindergarten to 5th Grade, she received the education we expected. My husband and I are really happy with North Verdemont Elementary teachers in ensuring our girl is receiving her education. Thank you.
North Verdemont has the best group of kids around. They are kind, happy, and hard working.
I am so impressed with North Verdemont and their care and concern for the students, academic programs by all the truly devoted teachers and staff, they have wonderful programs, even down to the cleaniness of the school and school grounds. My grandchildren have always looked forward to school and that goes to the quality of the teachers and staff.
My husband and I are very pleased with North verdemont! We recently moved to the area from Rancho Cucamonga where our son attended Kindergarten. We were hoping he would excel and come to love North Verdemont as much as he did his school in Rancho. We are happy to report that he has adjusted well and is as excited to go to his new school as he was at his old school. From his very first day of 1st grade with Ms Van Dusen we knew that this was a great school. Ms Van Dusen cares about each child and it shows! We are also pleased with the class size. Open House was great and it was nice to see such a great parent turnout! Mrs Martinez gave us a great welcome and we loved the garden slideshow. We are looking forward to a great school year!
I have children in this school. I have had a couple of good experiences but probably more bad experiences with this school, but I also feel like most of the staff have lost the interest of teaching. There are a couple of really good teachers but most of the ones there now seem to just be hanging on. The One of the office staff has been there for at lease 8 years and she is very nice but the majority are not very nice. The Principle seems to let everyone else take over. I have seen better schools and I wish my children could go to another school.
My oldest son has been in the 6th grade at NVES for 2005-6. We have found this school to provide a caring, concerned envirnment in which the children are encouraged to do their best at all times. Their excellent science programme is evident throughout the school at all grade levels. The principal shows warmth ,humor and excellennt leaderhip qualities as she goes about her job. There is a real feeling of community within this school with the teachers going above and beyond in their daily tasks to ensure our children are recieving the best possible education.
Most of my dealings with the school have not been positive. My kids have attended the school for six years now and I have a lot of complaints about the school and it s staff. The office staff is very cold to both the parents and the students. Some of the teachers in the school seem to have lost the passion for teaching and now it is just a job. I must also add that not all of the teacher at this school are this way, In fact the teacher that my child has now is in my opinion one of the best teachers I have seen.
