Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
They do not take time to investigate, and they do not listen to children' concerns. A lot of verbal/emotional abuse that they do not address.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
They weed out the students with learning differences.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The Principal is a weak leader, and he does not know what he is doing.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Very little homework, and usually something that does not make kids think outside the box.



- a
I was thought that school was a happy place where curiosity was developed among children. But not in our case, this school was a perfect description of verbal and emotional abuse that came from school, staff and students. The school created such an unpleasant environment for both of us. The things that they have done continued to be a nightmare for us. They did so much damage to our family, that I could not wait when this year would be over and we could move on to a new school, far away from their dysfunctional environment. This is what they do. They find a child that may be not confident, may be from a low-income household, may be a single parent household, may be African-American descend (FYI: there are no black kids there), and they start picking at him/her until they are mentally/psychologically/emotionally broken. Please do not take away your child’s happiness and desire for learning, curiosity, love, peace and balance. Please be your kids’ advocate, and follow your intuition.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Outstanding Leadership-very excited for the future of the school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Highly qualified- many with Master's degrees. Very passionate about their craft.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Most teachers assign homework that is relevant- not just busy work.




- a
Outstanding Leadership- Very experienced principal that just started this year. The school has high expectations for their students. High achieving middle school-ranks near the top in the area. Parents are invited to volunteer and be part of the school. Great learning environment with a family atmosphere. Students aren't allowed to "slip through the cracks."



- a
Love the core knowledge curriculum. As other reviews have pointed out, it's a safe/supportive/friendly environment. You can tell most kids love going to school there every day - and they received personalized attention from teachers. No, as a smaller school it doesn't have every activity a larger (middle) school may offer, but they support activities outside of school (recognition for student success in club sports for example) and as a family, we prefer the K-8 consistency and ability to have our kids in 1 school together longer, rather than switching schools in middle school. Note: there is a very experienced new Principal joining NVCS in the 2016-17 year.
