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!!!!!
