Excellent staff that genuinely cares about students' academics and needs. The school is located in a neighborhood surrounded by old historic homes and easily accessible.

As a parent to tow children who attend North Hill Elementary School, I have to say that I am very satisified with the school. My children's teachers have always been attentive and caring to my children. They challenge the children, when needed and birng attention to special concerns with ach of my children. Communication is readily available and open. Keep up the great work!
