North Bend is a good school trying to become a great school. The school is composed of 99% of African American children who are truly loving and caring. We have one of the best principals in State of Maryland. She believes that every student comes to school to get smarter and as an educator I also believe this too and each everyday give my all. Giving my all doesn't just means teaching to the test or incorporating the new Common Core standards but giving of oneself, motivating, inspiring and encouraging children to do their very best in school as well as in life. Children now days are faced with so many issues, but teachers are constantly reminding students of all the opportunities they have to become great. So in saying all of this, I believe we have to ask the hard questions and the questions are now why, why is the answer right. Students have to dig deeper, research more, show us the evidence and then they will gain a better understanding, not just know the answer.

I love the extra activities that are done after school such as family math night, technology night etc. Most parents are involved like myself. I think this school is really helping my daughter learn. The bear bucks system is great because it makes the kids try harder and do better.

The first reviewer must have been in a euphoric state when he/she visited the school as well as when he/she wrote their comment. Actively participating parents? Where? Parents are absolutely not involved! At any given PTA meeting you may have 5 parents to show up. Like any school, this one has the potential to be a great one but all the stakeholders (Teachers, Administrators, Parents and the Students themselves) must keep student achievement at the forefront.

I have three children that attend North Bend Elementary in grades K, 2nd, & 5th. This school, in my eyes, is one of the best the city has to offer. Ms. Shelton (Principal) and Mr. Ellis (Vice-Principal), make sure that this school is ran in a structured environment. The administration of this school is very accommodating to parents. They keep the parents abreast of their child's achievements. I'm confident in their ability to equip, instruct and instill my children with the best academic preparation available. This schools teaching staff provides effective teaching that is an interactive process in which they provide our students with opportunities for learning to broaden their minds. This school + active participating parents = children with the knowledge they need to be an individual that will excel in life and achieve goals. This school receives two thumbs up!
