Fantastic school. My fifth grade daughter is moving on to middle school next year and I will be sad to leave LNS behind. She had to go to summer school every year since kindergarten for reading. Finally, in fourth grade I had a meeting with her teacher, principal, and special ed teachers. I requested she be tested for a learning disability because something just wasn't clicking. They came fully prepared with all her past marks and Iowa tests. We looked at every subject and decided she was well within her range in everything but reading. We all agreed to test her in just reading. She was tested, no learning disabilities present, but something wasn't right. She was placed in the LIPS program for the remainder of the year, and that did the trick. She is now reading up to speed thanks to the staff at LNS

I have been a North School parent for over 8 years. Two of my children have passed through this school, one is there currently, and I have one more who will enter in 3 years. Everyone we have encountered in our 8 years there have been wonderful. My oldest is a self starter/perfectionist and the teachers always kept her challenged. I also have a child who has a learning disability, and everyone has always been pro-active rather than re-active in his education and learning style. Communication between school and home is exceptional. The Principals both past and present have always been kind, fair, friendly and approachable. The staff know the children by name, and by family. Considering it's a public school, it is very family oriented. North School has a fabulous PTA and numerous after hour activities for the children and their families. We have considered moving to a different part of town for a bigger house, better location etc., but we will never leave the North School district. We love it here!

North School is a school designed for children who perform really well on tests. When they don't the schoool's answer is to hold that child back. Lack of funding, understanding and resting soley on test scores will leave children behind in more ways than one. I like the people; office staff, teachers, and principals. Most of the time we're working well with each other as a team. North School is located off Rt.28 and onto Sandborn Rd.the parking isn't designed well, but having patients help!
