Simple the best, secure and most convenient Elementary school in all Central Florida. Since 1999 till today A rated. The only one with a YMCA inside with heated pools, ac sports courts... Just loving it all. I'm glad to have our kids there.

Security is awful. There is a YMCA open to public INSIDE this school. It is total chaos. There are almost 1200 kids at this school, I have walked in several times and all times of day..there are kids everywhere and yet open to anyone who is a member to the Y... No locks to building no buzzing in.. This is scary and should not be allowed!!!!! There are no after school programs except for YMCA stuff. Are you kidding me? Everything is marketed like a theme park.. We just don't see what the big deal is. This may be better than the alternatives around here but I am not impressed at all. They are disorganized and chaotic. I saw a teacher speaking English as she walked class around school and then break out in Spanish to reprimand a kid for something. Really? We cannot wait to take our kid out of here! No thank you!

That is the Best School in Central Florida, where you can see very famous people around because it serves the best gated Community in the area. The LakeNona Golf and Country Club, the staff are just the best. We thank them every day for the wonderful care with our kids.

I am considering a move the neighborhood and Northlake Park is the assigned school. I called reception and asked if I could see the school and was transferred to an Assistant Principal's voicemail and did not get the courtesy of any reply at all.

My kids attended NLP from K-5th and I am very happy with the education they received. My oldest is finishing middle school and she came out well prepared for all the demands of her advanced and honors courses in another school. The teachers they both have had were all excellent. They all went above and beyond for all their students. However, I am concerned that although parents are welcomed, there is some kind of preferential treatment for a group of parents. Seems when there is an issue with their kids, the administration bends over backwards to make those parents happy, regardless of the consequences. But when is another group of parents who are not happy, the same treatment is not granted. I also have an issue with discipline. If there is a child that has a major behavioral issue why is that child not removed from the room immediately? Seems to me that the whole class suffers because of the ONE child. The teacher must be overwhelmed when there is not a lot of outside support with these situations. I understand these kids have special needs and benefit from a regular classroom, but the effect on the majority of the kids should not be overlooked.

This may be a good school, but when the children fail the FCAT in reading and passes with excellent grades in all other subjects there's is a problem. And if you ask the teacher why? and tell you "I don't know", its a big disappointment.

I am very happy with this school. Teachers are excellent on meeting the curriculum. My daughter did very good during the whole year and passed the FCAT. For me this means they did their job. The staff is very friendly. I love having lunch with my daughter whenever I'm off work. Few things I don't like, it's what they offer for lunch. Their food does not taste good. The other thing, it's that my daughter told me they had recess once a week. She finished 3rd grade.

Great school and teachers, but extremely high frequency of fundraising efforts in this bad economy. Seems like every few weeks.

I love this school. My kids go to Moss Park Elementary now, which I hate. NLP is so much better, truly friendly administration! The car line and the way they actually teach the curriculum, and pay attention to the students is amazing! Hopefully get to have my kids back there next year!! If you have a choice over the two schools, do yourself a favor and pick Northlake Park!!

I totally agree with both posts below. The lack of after school program is really the only bad thing I can say about the school. My daughter has been here for 2 years and absolutely loves the school but the YMCA before & after school program are SO expensive! She attended the program for about 2 months, because I was on bed rest, and we had to withdraw her from the program b/c it was just more than we could afford.

I wish they offered an after school program other than the YMCA which is very expensive esspecially when I have not intentions on using the YMCA for anything other than the after school program.

This is a wonderful school. My son has received a grade 'a' education. But I do not like the fact that the school does not offer any afterschool activities other than the YMCA., which is very expensive.

I would like to commment on post dated May 11, 2007. Simply not true. You can sign up to volunteer in your child's classroom. I can also join them for lunch. Naturally, for our children's safety, we are required to sign in at the office anytime we visit. Naturally, to keep structure and the comfort daily routine provides, teachers manage their own classroom volunteer schedules. There is also a very active and efficient PTA at NLP.

I have two children (2nd & K) who attend NLP. We moved to the Lake Nona area specifically to attend this school and have not been disapointed in the least! The teachers are wonderful, the facilities are top notch, and the administration honestly seems to care about both the kids and the parents! The integrated YMCA is wonderful! My kids go to after school (which is more like a camp atmosphere) and participate in virtual year round activities (flag football, baseball, basketball, soccer for my son and basketball, cheerleading, soccer for my daughter. This school is top notch!!

We moved to NLP last year, Mid -year, from a sm private school--my children were behind. Our teachers helped us get caught up and we are above grade level now. Teachers, students, and parents are Great! I volunteer every week- We are Thankful we found a Great School!

I like my child class room teacher. I think she is great. On the other hand, I do not appreciate the school system trying to keep parents from going to their child's classroom at all costs because it could be viewed as 'disruptive' I am glad we were only here a couple of months and there is only a couple of days left of school...is this what we have to look forward to in Orange County Florida?

I absolutely adore how this school has changed my life. I can now go to the same building where my daughter is going to school and work out, take classes, and other things. I am never late to pick her up , this is wonderful. I am so thankful that the YMCA and northlake park elementary have combined in such a great way.

Wonderful school; John Rudzik is an exceptional administrator. The music program with the new music teacher is well run, and the teachers are all very good. Also, Florida schools in general teach entirely to the FCAT (though they deny it) because it is the only way the schools can receive necessary funding. It's a very poor system, but it's not the fault of the schools-it's the fault of the state.
