Great place. My son was entering his second pre k in one year and his transition into North Street was smooth and effortless. The teachers are welcome and intelligent and found the perfect way to make my son feel safe. Total 180 in his attitude about going to school. His first pre k he never settled in, in the two months he was there. Every morning at drop off he would cry and beg me not to leave him. But at North he was acclimated by the end of his orientation meeting. Walked right off the bus a happy kid day one.
I also enjoy the high level of communication i have with his teachers. I get notes home and reports on his behavior regularly. After i had my second child they let me have ppt meetings over the phone for a while too.
I am a mother of a little girl who has Down Syndrome. She would not be able to do the things she does today if it was not for North Street School. The special education teachers at this school are phenomenal, the regular education teachers are wonderful and the rest of the staff in the school do just as much for the students as the teachers. I am very confident that my son, who will be starting kindergarden this year, will become a more loving, responsible, well mannered student at this school. He will be also be a productive and involved student at North Street School because of all of the attention and positive reinforcement the educators at this school provide for there students.
This school is top notch in really helping children learn and meet their potential. Children with special needs are never left behind and worked with so they can keep up with the children that learn more easily. My son has ADHD and other learning disabilities and was not the easiest child to get to behave and learn. The teachers and staff at this school never gave up on him, and he is a successful 8th grader today because of them.
