Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a parent
They are as effective as their principal allows them to be, and since she seems to have control issues, it stifles the teachers!

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a parent
ALL schools need to rethink how much homework is being assigned to students! Students need more time to be creative!!!


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a parent
When the administration has been found by parents to be less than truthful in the past it doesn't set a good example for the students!

Love the teachers! Not a fan of the PTO, or the principal! Enrollment is dropping, and test scores are going down. This school is on the down slide, through no fault of the teachers. Moving my student after the end of the year. I definitely don't recommend Normandy to anybody. There are much better schools in Jeffco! Get out while you can!

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.



- a parent
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.
