The principal is horrible, very rude. She has no love for children. I don't know why she is in that field. On very frigid days, she has the children waiting outside to go in for breakfast. Breakfast should start at 7:45am and she didn't open the doors until 7:50am.

In 27 degree weather, she (the principal) has the children go outside after lunch (they don't get to finish eating and are told to throw away their food) and march in circles.

I have to say my kids attend this school and I have been so disappointed with the principal. I have had many of the parents tell me she was horrible, but I personally had not seen it first hand. Then I watched as this woman bad mouthed a parent in front of her child and simply because I had been looking she came over to me to explain herself. Now this year is filled with overlapping schedules instead of coming up with any kind of solutions she tells me my kids will be going to detention for being late as if they could drive themselves to school.

I have to admit that I was a little concerned about my daugther attending Kindergarten at North Dover Elementary. But after meeting with the Vice-Principal, and taking a tour of the school, I felt much better about it. Now, half-way through the year, I must say that I would hate to take my daughter out of the school. The Principal and Vice-Principal are very 'hands-on' and kind, and know each child. They bend over backwards to help you with any issues you have. In addition, my daughter's teacher is excellent! She is a great communicator and clearly operates in the best interests of the children at all times. The curriculum is well-balanced and the school itself is very nice, with a nice big, well-equipped art room, a large, well-stocked library, and a cutting edge computer room. I am very pleased with the school and would recommend it to anyone!
