I have two kids at this school. Both started in Kindergarden, and all the teachers they had had have been great. They all have been concern about the progress of them and help them improve. Both of my kids are in the gifted program which is great since the first grade. The school staff is excellent and helpful; however, what I don't like is that the new Principal the school have this year has implemented new rules that eliminate the communication between the parents and the teacher and consequently creating a wall between us and our kids' education and eliminating our capability to know our kids' classmates. Our kids spent the whole day in school, and we should know who are the people around them.
The teachers in this school are the best what gives this school a bad name is the administration they simply don't care about any concern a parent might have have.
My son started Kindergarden this year, and was a bit behind but his teacher Ms. Brannan is a great teacher and has made a big effort to make him speed up. Right now he is one of the best in his class. I just feel they dont communicate with parents enough. but i guess they dont have enough time.
I have been teaching at North Twin Lakes for aboput 12 years. I have never heard or experienced any gang activity at our school. The comment sounds completely made up. If there was gang activity I would know about it. The teachers at this school are caring and dedicated to making every student suceed. The current principal is wonderful. We are an A+ school. This is a great school to bring your children.
My son started preK last year and had a wonderful year. This year they put him in an advanced class and is doing great. The teachers and principle are very involved.
I taught at North Twin Lakes Elementary a few years ago and there were never any major discipline problems nor was there ever any gang activity. The school was safe and caring. The faculty and staff were always looking for ways to improve student learning, were helpful and caring individuals who worried about their students, and helped them to do their best.
I now have two children in this school and they are very happy and very loved. I am very aware of what goes on at the school and I know alot of the children especially in the forth and fifth grades. I have never seen any kind of gang activity. If anything the children are very sweet and caring to each other. This is my daughters last year and the closer it gets to the end the more depressed we get knowing that our little family will be broken up.
My Daughter was in North Twin Lakes from Pre-K to 5th grade. It was my choice to keep her in that school, with a waiver, after we moved due to the excellent quality of school that it is. My husband and I were extremely sad as her last day at NTL was getting closer. We knew she would never experience the love and kindness from the dedicated teachers, staff, and students elsewhere. She cried so much on her last day as part of the NTL family. She will miss it very much.
I am a third grade teacher at North Twin Lakes and have been for 5 years. During my service there I haven't heard of any gang activity or the incident that was documented here. The author of the comment was not specific and does not sound authentic. Please use your discretion when reading these comments. Thank you. M. Vazquez, Third Grade
