Excellent school even if you have a child with a 504 or IEP the teachers and staff are supportive, helpful and caring. I have 3 children at this school and they love it! As a parent the rules for volunteer and visiting can feel a bit cold but once you attend an event or conference you will see the greatness of NSE. My children have learned so much through the enriched curriculum and I have to stay the student body of NSE has to be some of the friendliest and kindest group of children. So glad we moved to DE and found this great school!
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.
