This school provides so many different avenues for kids to learn! It is one of the only Douglas County schools with a Discovery program for talented and gifted kids. My daughter is in discovery and has had amazing teachers since Kinder.

My family loves Northridge. I have a kindergartner and a third grader. After three and a half years at this school, I have had nothing but positive experiences with the school, the teachers, and the administration. Mrs Morris (the principal) is so passionate about her students and keeping the school heading in the right direction. The teachers are all amazing. There are plenty of opportunities for volunteering, lots of extra curricular options, help for students at all levels, and many community events to create an atmosphere of inclusiveness. It's an amazing place to be and everyone in my family is thrilled to be a part of such a great neighborhood school.

I am so grateful for Northridge!! Just in half a year at this school my son has begun to improve scholastically and socially. Both my 1st grader and kindergarten student were welcomed in mid year and the teachers were more than I could have imagined. Both teachers were Attentive, easy to talk to and the communication was excellent on all levels. My son's 1st grade teacher was outstanding and spent extra time helping him catch up and my daughters teacher was wonderful she loved her class and learned so much. I open enrolled my kids here and are so thankful they were accepted in. The principle is committed and communicates effectively and in a timely manner. She is a very sincere person. Parents are friendly and welcoming , so many school activities and functions , parent participation, academics that nurture each child. So pleased with this school!!!! Outstanding all around Northridge !! Thank you!

Northridege has been the best thing that has happend to our boys! We have moved from state to state due to my husbands job and the level of education we are recieving at this school far exceeds the rest! The teachers go out of their way to make sure each child is succesful, understanding the material, and to top it off they make it fun! My 2nd grader is having a blast, my Kindergartner is writting, reading, doing math, and even a bit of spanish! What more could you ask for? Northridge has it all! I love this school and more importantly my boys love this school!!! Hats off to Elizabeth Morris and her team they get an A+

We only had one teacher at Northridge, Mrs. Jamison (K), before we moved away .... so I can only comment on her. But we miss her still. She had an incredible ability to challenge my son while still accommodating the needs of the kids who were struggling. Who knew my child could exit K knowing how to write a paragraph with a topic sentence and knowing the importance of adding strong adjectives to his sentences?! My younger child started K in a different state and I wish we could send her back to Mrs. Jamison.

Northridge is a wonderful school in which to teach and learn. My three children attended Northridge and were well prepared for their life after elementary school. Every teacher they had was excellent. They were warm, caring, creative, and highly motivated to do what was right for kids. This is still the case. Over the years I have taught in many different schools. The Northridge community, including staff, administration, and parents, has been, without doubt, the most supportive and caring group I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We believe in the 3 R's of education: rigor, relevance, and relationships. All of these are apparent daily in dealings with our students and their families.

I feel lucky to have purchased a home in the Northridge attendance boundary. I have kids on both ends of the academic spectrum. They were able to challenge by "bright" child as well as support my "struggling" one. Both kids are thriving based on the foundation set by Northridge. I never felt like CSAP's trumped all at NRE. As a matter of fact- the ability to do well on a standardized test is a survival skill these days- thankfully the teachers taught the test taking strategies necessary for my kids to be able to show what they know. ACT/SAT/on-line pre-employment testing is all a reality of life- learning test taking skills in the week leading up to CSAP is in no way "teaching to the test"-its preparation and I am thankful my kids learned it.

I have 2 girls at NRE. We have been there for 5 yr now. I have nothing but high praise for this school. Every one of their teachers, have been excellent. I appreciate all of the diverse learning styles that each of the teachers bring to NR. It is a great life lesson for my girls to learn, and they have loved each of them. I wish i could name names. My daughter has had the priveledge to have one of the runner ups of the Apple Award for a teacher this yr. He is a awesome teacher......I think 99% of the parents would agree with me.

I have three kids and we have been attending Northridge for almost 4 years now. The teachers are loving, intelligent and engaging. The principal is accessible and the school has a gret atmosphere. This school has a gifted program as well as special education services. They have a preschool and before and after school care. With the exception of one 1st grade teacher, we have had all amazing teachers and my kids love going to school every day. We bought a house in this neighborhood simply so Northridge could be our home school!

Many parents may find Northridge to be a high-performing school with good teachers. However, it was not a good fit for my child. The curriculum is either black or white. Much of the instruction is derived from text books. My child was constantly pushed to perform well on the CSAP test and not encouraged to be a creative thinker. If you are someone who values creativity and a well-rounded education Northridge may not be the best choice.

I have nothing but good things to say about our 2 years of expereince with Northridge Elementary so far. Both of my children have had excellent teachers and have had whatever support they needed. One of my sons is very young for his grade; but the teachers have been great about making sure I'm always in the loop and helping him acclimate to the new grades. I am very eager to keep my kids here at Northridge as long as I can.

Northridge is an amazing school that has wonderful teachers who truly care about each child, superb administrators that support their teachers, and beautiful students that love to learn.


Posted October 7, 2009

I can only think of positive things when I think of Northridge. The teachers and staff are all wonderful. Northridge is a friendly and safe place to be. My children love their school and feel perfectly comfortable asking any teacher or staff member any questions they may have. The staff always has a smile to greet you every morning and afternoon. I couldn't ask for anything else in a school for my children.

Northridge has teachers that care about their students, their community, and their environment. Northride has consistently excelled in academics, service learning, and the arts. I know my child is getting a top rate education and will be prepared to be a 21st century learner.

My daughter is in kindergarten and loves the teacher and the school. She has the opportunity here to be in advanced classes which encourages her to exceed and believe in herself. The teachers are skilled and very responsive to the children's and parents needs and suggestions.

We've been here for 4 years only b/c of the Discovery Program. If it wasn't offered, we would certainly not select Northridge. The school is quite over-rated and the incessant fundraising is redundant. The administrators really don't like the Discovery families but love how they boost their test scores.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
