North Grade Elementary has really been great! The teachers are usually all fun, but they also provide an amazing education. The fine arts teachers are diligent and passionate about their jobs, especially the current music teacher. Two special programs of the school are dual language and gifted. My son is in gifted and like I stated before, all of his teachers were/are great! The 2011-2012 principal, Ms.Debbie Battles was very good at her job and we miss her.Anyways, you should definitely check out this school!
This is a school that really cares for their students and has a great team of people! The fact that many teachers have their own kids in it says a lot about the dual language program. I am so grateful to have this school in our lives. About the FCAT review, I think this schools really tries to help students to meet state standards but at the same time don't even gets closer to the pressure that other schools give into them. A lot of parent involvement.

We have just completed our first year at North Grade Elementary. My daughter will be in first grade next year. Everyone is welcoming. The leadership of the school is fantastic. I find the environment of the school to be supportive and welcoming. Parent involvement could be better but what the school has is wonderful. My daughter cried on the last day of school because she can't wait to go back!
My daughter is in Kindergarten at North Grade and part of the Dual Language program. The teachers are extremely friendly and highly dedicated professionals. Likewise, the Principal takes the time to get to know you on a more personal level. I highly recommend the school for dual language and regular classes alike due to the outward devotion to education shown at the school, in the classroom and at all school functions. The staff and student body are both very diverse. It's a wonderful, welcoming place that feels more like you're part of a family than just a school system.
My daughters have been at North Grade for 4 years now. The choice programs offered there are excellent and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. The teachers, staff and pricipal genuinely care about the children and seem very happy to be there. We feel very fortunate to be a part of the North Grade family. The Trevino Family
Great and motivated staff and a very active and supportive principal (Mrs. Battles). Three choices of education: Regular, Dual Language and Gifted Program. A 'Five Star School' with 75 % of students receiving reduced or free lunch, with two 'A's and 1 B' in the last 3 years. I think all these facts makes North Grade A GREAT SCHOOL!. Tha Marin's Family.
