My daughter had a hard time with one teacher. But overall her 4 years at the middle school were excellent including extra help with consideration of the one teacher. Great community

Having a very difficult time with the staff and my middle school student. Bullying is a big problem. We moved here for a better life for our children but are now planning on moving out.

This school system needs a serious makeover. The quality of teaching and people in charge of our children is terrible. We are currently moving out of Northbridge so we can find a good education for ur children. It has just gotten worse over the years and the old my kids get the worse the education gets. Very disappointing. There is also still a huge bulling problem that none of the administration seems to care about. they say its a priority but they are all talk. There is very little consequence for bullies in this town/school system.

There is a serious bullying problem, for boys and girls, at this school. A place where this unhealthy atmosphere is fostered is the cafeteria and its seating rules (7 to a table) at lunch, encouraging a culture of exclusion for both sexes. This is then transferred to classrooms, and even when teachers and administrators are approached about these issues, they are downplayed, and swept under the rug. My honor students no longer attend public schools in Northbridge, in an attempt to save their lives and provide hope for the future.

I have found that the Middle School is mostly talk. They stress how important education is and yet they dont back that up. I have found that in talking with some of the teachers that they didnt give more homework because they dont have time to correct it.. I found that to be ridiculous. Teachers should assign more work, and allow talking in class less. The students I have talked to all say that they talk alot in class and the teachers do nothing. I have also found thte the Special Ed program is somewhat of a joke. They want to grade your child and not support them in manners to encourage improvement, Their take is 'make them do less' --If you want to improve a skill then typically you woudl do more -- not less. Less emphasis on social skills and more on academics would help improve.

Great School: Would like to see more homework, and enrichment classes / foreign language exposure, and after school clubs oriented towards academic work. Also would like to see interactive websites maintained. I've found the teachers more than willing to work with me regarding my child's education experience. Reminder - Parents must do their part at the home.

The Northbridge Middle School is good. However, Its not the best school there is and needs a lot more inprovement. Also the teachers should make classes more fun and easy, some people have dificulies learning and its not there fault.

They are not there 100 percent for the kids who seek and need the extra help to get by. They need to improve in many areas.
