We have been at Normandy for many years now, and I am very pleased with the teachers and general curriculum (NOT common core). Standardized testing, not so much. The teachers my children have had communicate very well and are absolutely amazing! The principal on then other hand is a different story. There is a HUGE lack of communication with parents on the part of the administration. Parents need to come to school and be more involved so they can see what really goes on behind the scenes, as it would be a big eye opener! Many people leave Normandy because of the principal. This community needs new leadership at this school!

This school is one of the best schools have enrolled my children in. The teachers and staff are excellent and make sure you learn. However I am not very fond of the new principal but that is only my opinion. You should enroll you child/children at Normandy now! It Normandy Elementary is a great school.

Normandy Elementary is meeting and exceeding all of my parental qualifications for a great school. Great curriculum, high staff retention, caring staff, administration who not only know my kids names but mine also. Parents who get and stay involved. Highly recommend it.

This school may rank high in the grades but they are slipping. The previous reviews are correct but it all changed in the 2011-2012 school year. Many parents have noted this and are having trouble getting the teachers to pull together for education. They are too focused on technology at need to get back to the books and follow through with teaching the kids on forever skills and not just teach them to memorize the material for the day. Stear clear of any of the advanced classes because the children are not taught how math works and how reading complrehsion is more important than reaching the AR point goal.

The staff is very caring and the curriculum challenges each student at their learning ability.

We open enrolled at Normandy because they follow a Core Knowledge sequenced curriculum with Saxon Math. I would choose it again. The school has active involvement by parents and that involvement is welcome. Homework is reasonable. Classroom technology is appropriate if not impressive. Classwork is focused and in upper grades recess is reduced to one--which I personally feel our society forgets children need breaks to maintain a good mental focus. The principal does focus on producing student achievers and high scores for the school. She runs a well organized and behaved school--it does not always feel warm and fuzzy. No school is perfect but I'm highly satisfied with Normandy.

It's one of the top schools in Denver. The staff is great and proactive. The parents are involved in lots of activities. They have great school programs that parents volunteer their time for such as science and art clubs as well as fun activities such as movie nights, lego clubs, stackers clubs etc. Families from all over the state try to get their children into this school. My son and I are very happy there.

This school is amazing. We love Normandy Elementary. The teachers are amazing, the curriculum is amazing, and the students that go to this school are amazing. In this articulation area it is the best school around. This school gets them ready for learning in/for the future, and teaches them how to be respectful, responsible, and safe. My kids love going here. I've been to the other elementary schools in this area, there is just no comparison. As said below, some schools are just not for everyone.

I would agree with the last review. I had almost the same experience. All the school cares about is its test scores! If your child needs help they want you to send them to another school.

We had a very poor experience here; hopefully it was the exception and not the rule. The class size was large with a sizable number of poorly behaved children. If your child is patient, quiet, and polite they might get ignored while teachers deal with the other kids. The school focuses on the test scores at the expense of teaching. Our child's performance and self esteem plummeted during their time at Normandy. The school refused to test for learning disability and told us our child was not very bright. We payed for private testing which revealed our child to be in the 150 IQ range but with severe dyslexia. The school refused to do anything until they could test; which they wanted to delay for 6 months. That was the final straw and I'm sure they were thrilled to protect the scores by getting rid of us.

I had two daughters that attended this school since 1997. The previous principal was terrific. However, with the change of administration came a huge change in the overall leadership of the school. The core knowledge curriculum, that the previous principal installed, is fantastic and the teacher's ability to teach this curriculum is amazing. I only hope that the test scores remain high during this administration.

Normandy Elementary school is an outstanding school. They have an incredibly strong curriculum, staff and administration. They have a very strong PTO/CDM and parent involvement. They follow the Core Knowledge curriculum - and excellent back to basics program with sequential learning each year. The school's dress code and discipline code are strictly enforced. It is a jewell in the rough.

I have been impressed with the education that two of my children have received at Normandy. The core knowledge curriculum has been impressive and I am amazed at the liberal arts knowledge my children have. Both the math program and the phonics program have fit my daughter's learning style and she has excelled. I have appreciated the education they received in the primary grades. I felt that at the intermediate level there was not as much interest in accomodating different learning needs. It has been a good experience, though.
