North Grove Elementary School5

I am so proud to have North Grove as my neighborhood school. My 3 children attended North Grove 10-15 years ago. I feel that they received such a well grounded introductory education that has served as the foundation for their life long educational success. My neighbors continue to rave about the outstanding program the school offers.
Very happy with North Grove. The Principal is excellent and full of enthusiasm. Most of the teachers are great although some put in less effort thatn others. Parent involvment could be better. So many seem happy to just drop the kids at the door and forget about it until the end of the day. Involved parents make for a much better experience for all. Not enough are taking enough of an interest in the school. Having said that the ones that do have done a wonderful job at enriching the studetns lives and give up countless hours for the greater good. The school is building towards an outstanding environment.
I am dissapointed in the lack of enrichment given for students that are exceptional. What [our son] had learned in kinder, he is basically doing now in 1st grade. Also, the class size is very large (26 in his class). My husband and I are exploring educational alternatives for our son for next year. All-in-all, I am far less than impressed with the school
i had 3 children so far attend north grove 1 being special needs the regular educastion teachers do not make an effort to include them in school activities. i feel the special ed teacher is aexcellent teacher but to main stream in the rest of the school they lack in effort
I've had two children attend and graduate from K to 6th at North Grove and was personally involved on a limited basis with the PTO and school events. I found every teacher we came in contact with to be a credit above and beyond their choosen profession. I doubt very much if my children could have received a more rounded or quality education.
