This school is amazing! My son has matured and developed academically and socially. He loves going to school and the teachers, staff and pricipal are always so nice. I have never felt uneasy about sending him to school. Thanks to everyone at Northside for making my son and our family feel welcome and safe.
I can't say enough good things about the Levittown district in general and this school and it's staff in particular. Our son is a special needs child and the Special Ed teachers in this school are outstanding. Every one that we have dealt with (my son is going into 5th grade in the fall) has been terrific. But it is more than just the teachers. From the principal, Mr. Squillacioti (or Mr S as the students call him) all the way down, every staff member is great. This past year we attempted to move my son from 12-1-1 to an "inclusion" class, and we had some issues. The teachers, school pyschologist, social worker, and principal worked with us to basically create a customized program for him. It started with being pulled from the inclusion class into a 12-1-1 for certain subjects and we kept tweaking it until it was the other way around, and it worked. We had their full support the entire year and I can't thank them all enough. If you have a child with special needs, it will be difficult, if not impossible to find a better district on Long Island than Levittown.
I am so far satisfied with the overall teaching experience at Northside school as a child's parent. The teachers and staff are great and well qualified and friendly to make the transition from Pre-K to K a fun experience, and where my daughter looks forward to go everyday. She loves her school.
This school has positive and negatives. The special education is excellent. My son who is in special programs has had excellent teachers. My daughter who is main stream has not been so lucky. My experience is that if your child is normal and does not cause any issues that make the teachers have to do anything extra in teh form of teaching or behavioral, then you will love teh school. But if your child requires extra attentions, and they are in main stream, you will not get it, you will be treated as a problem that they want to go away. Again, special education and the ER classes are exceptional.
