North Star continues to shine as a school community filled with both heart and talent. Teachers advocate for each child's success, they believe in each child's potential, and they value each student for their unique strengths and personalities. Building administration is welcoming, positive, and responsive to concerns. Parents pride themselves on being truly involved partners in their children's education. This school is in a class all its own!

I have had a terrible time with this school. The teachers who assist with the after school car line are consistently rude and disrespectful to parents. Additionally, they give confusing inconsistent direction from day to day. The main office has also provided me with inaccurate information on several occasions. My experience with this school has been a major disappointment. .

Relative to other elementary schools in the district, North Star is top notch. I believe this has a lot to do with their amazing PTA and overall parental involvement. Through their fundraising efforts, resources and volunteers, they're able to fund extracurricular activities and supplies for the school and individual classrooms. The foster a wonderful sense of community and school spirit.

NSE is the best school ever. Our daughter is in 3rd grade and she loves her teacher and her classmates... The parent involvement is amazing where some schools have to beg parents to volunteer NSE has to schedule parent involvement for school trips because everyone wants to go.. Our children are very lucky to learn in such amazing environment.

We are very happy at North Star. I have two children there, and we have had excellent teachers, excellent opportunities, and lots of fun. The children are generally from good family environments, well-behaved, and intelligent. The parental support is tremendous and the financial support from the PTA enables a lot of technology most public schools do not have access to. My children have participated in numerous activities, classes, and groups, and loved every minute of it. They have excelled academically and socially. I have had a great deal of interaction with administration, teachers, and support staff, and found all of them to be top-rate.
