Northmoor is a great school. The culture is very welcoming to the children and the parents. The teachers are excellent in praising students for their efforts and showing good character. The flow of the curriculum helps the students retain the information. I am very please with my choice and confident that my son is getting a excellent foundation.

Northmoor has an exceptional program. Their Principal, Dr. Wood, runs a very respectable school which not only educates students in the standard curriculum but enforces respect throughout the school by teaching and enforcing core values every month.

This is one of the best schools in our state and they have the accolades to prove it! Every child is important. Parents and teachers work together to find a nuturing, educational environment that not only teaches them the fundamentals but core values of life.

I love the staff and how they make each child feel special and that they matter! Each child can learn at their own pace and still feel part of the group. The school focuses on all the educational lessons that are necessary but also the core values that makes kids grow up into productive and successful adults. A place where students can soar to new heights.

I Have 2 children at this school and they both LOVE it. I disagree with the previous comment about extra curricular activities. They are right on track with the other elementary schools around the area. I do agree that WAY to much emphasis is put on the ISAT. They stress the kids out for no reason other than to make sure the teachers and principal look good. My son's grades started slipping once ISAT preparation came up because they would only stay on one unit for 2 weeks. Other than that the school is great, the teachers are amazing, they really care about the students, bad behavior is not tolerated. The drama and chorus teacher is EXCELLENT. I can't say enough good things about this school. I will be sad when it's time to leave.

I have three children in this school this year, and one who moved on to middle school already, and it is an awesome school. The kids adore their teachers, and are challenged and well supported. The curriculum is engaging and the extras such as art, music and spanish keep the kids interested. The only downside I have seen is the lack of extra curricular activity, and even the ones that are offered, are largely limited to how many can participate. At this age, it isn't such a large concern though. A lot of emphasis is put on the ISAT tests and I feel too much pressure is put on the kids, when the testing is really evaluating the teachers, not the kids. Still, I highly recommend this school!

Northmoor-Edison is a choice school; those who are there really want to be there. This model offers accountability; progress is carefully monitored and the teaching staff receives tools which allows them to modify their teaching methods to fit individual needs. Students, parents, and teachers design goals for each student each quarter. They each decide what they are going to do to help that child reach his/her goal. My husband and I have been Edison partnership parents for 7 years. We appreciate the well-rounded education it offers including an emphasis on foreign language and the arts. We appreciate having a choice in where we have our kids educated. We love knowing that all who are there, including staff, have chosen to dedicate themselves to this research based model that works well in our community!

This school is a great school. My son is in kindergarten here and has learned so much and absolutely loves the school. They involve the kids and parents into every aspect of the school. You never feel that you are not in the know about anything. All the teachers are great. They teach Spanish from K-4 and I feel that is great. They have a great music program and are very involved in getting the kids to read. This is just an all around great school in this district.
