my school is Northwood elementary. the faciility i think is decent. Teachers are good. the school could be improved more like safety. need more staffs to watch kids because school and park are connected and no fence in between. also i would think curriculum could also be improved more too like more reading, writing and other activities like music/arts, sports.
A most excellent school choice. Wonderful neighborhood. A creative, caring, and dedicated school staff. Talented teachers. Great parent involvement and successful PTA. A marvelous music program.
Working moms and dad:This school offers FREE after school programe for the kids,home work help,and activities everyday until 6:00pm.
I love this school. The teachers are very dedicated and spend much of their own time helping student before, during and after school.
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!!!!!
For me northwood is really a number 1 school.My kids have a lot of improvements.When it comes to academics they're really number 1. All the teachers are great! especially mr. Wong. Keep it up! be proud you are a teacher the future of the kids depends on you!
Thank you mrs. Kramer(5th grade teacher at Northwood)without your help,my daughter wouldn't be an 'A' student at Morrill middle school in 6th grade!.You are a great teacher.
My son was at Northwood last year. We had a tremendous experience. Northwood is a great school for kids. They have music (violin lessons, etc), corous, Sciene is wonderful! My son love it. We also had opera for kids! It was fun. Congratulations for a good teachers, Principal and parents that are involved too!
I have two children my daughter has been attending Northwood since kinder and is now in fourth grade and my son is in kinder I have been pleased with all the teachers , they have been informative and helpfull and I know I will be blessed through out the years with my son ,cant wait!
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.
I have had 2 children in Northwood (a third will go there soon). It is a great school. Great teachers, good population.
