I think this is amazing school. The staff is so nice and caring. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure the kids needs are met. The equipment is up to date. I'm so happy my son goes here!

Attending this school as a child was the best thing that's ever happened to me. I've created memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. No teachers compare to the teachers from North. Wish I could be young again and just start over. I highly suggest this school to every family.

I attended North School from K-6th grade. North school is progressive. They implement new programs, keep updated with research, and hands on activities are a priority. Students feel learning is fun. Reading is a priority yet all of the other subjects including social skills, science, and social studies are not just taught they are learned. The vast majority of the teachers go 'above and beyond' for their students. I highly recommend this school for their ability to meet the needs of all students including those with special needs.
