North elementary School has not been the best school my children have been to. Being Military we move a lot. We did not mind that the school is older..it is not about looks but about the teaching, teachers ,principal , staff and leadership. we have had a bad experience with this school and we have never had that at any other school. The principal seems to be over strong, intimidating,and talks down to not only his staff members but also parents and the students. The teachers even though there are some great ones at this school there is a a few that just do not seem on top of things. The fifth grade students have not been prepared as they should for middle school and rarely bring home any homework or reading assignments. The kindergarten classes are great in some ways and in others . I do not feel the teachers communicate well with the parents and you are not updated as to how your child is doing or what you need to help work on at home with them for the next school year. With all this said the school is not good at keeping you updated with what is going on at school and when they have special events. The only great thing about the school, is the nurses are fantastic!

This is a great school! The parents are welcome and encouraged to be involved. The teachers are amazing and care a lot about their students and the families! The students have plenty of opportunities to excel in academics as well as extra-curricular activities.

This is an amazing school. The teachers all care about the children and they go the extra mile for their students. The principle is one of The best I have ever seen. I have two children in this school, one is a special needs child and they have been so wonderful in learning about his needs and what they can do to educate him. The teachers, staff and principle all try to know the kid's on a first name basis, they are on top of anything the kid's might be doing and they are awesome at informing the parents as soon as any incidents occur. You always see 3 or more teachers, staff and parents outside when the children come in. They always greet the children and make them feel welcome.I love that the school has a open door policy. You feel comfortable entering the school at any time.

If you have a pre-K age student with autism, Aspergers or a similar learning difficulty, Mr. Luis Fierro is fantastic dealing with these children.
