My son attended kindergarten here at Northwood. I never felt safe leaving my child at this school. The campus area is wide open with a park right next to the school with no fence. The campus was dirty and I didn't care for the teacher's attitude. I was very happy when we finally got him transferred.

I have found Northwood Elementary to be a great school. My daughter has learned a lot and the teachers are very dedicated towards their students. My daughters reading and writing skills have improved and her vocabulary has increased. Her teacher Ms. La Tendresse seems to be doing a great job with her students. She is always coming up with new activities to help the students learn life long lessons. Great Job!!!!!

I have 2 boys in Northwood School, and I am very pleased with the education they are receiving there. The teachers are positive and motivated in their approach to help the children succeed. They offer various programs to aid the children if they are struggling in certain area's. I have been very impressed with this school!

I feel very fortunate to have my daughter attending Northwood. I have found that the principle and teachers at Northwood work hard to make sure that all the children are learning in a positive environment. The teachers are happy to have parent involvement and participation and I feel very much a part of the team responsible for my child's education because it's easy to interact with the staff and know what's going on in the classroom.

I think Northwood School is an outstanding school. I have 2 boys there, one is in First and the other is in Second grade. I think the only thing they need is some more yard duties, and watch the older kids that like to pick on the younger kids. Or they need some tuff moms to put those 'out of controll kids' in place. The teachers there are wonderful, and the kids learn so much from them.
