Northwood Elementary School 4

I have 3 children. My oldest is now in middle school. I've had awesome experiences in the last 5 years they've been there. All the staff are very friendly and caring. The only complaint I have is that both the organization and the teachers for 4th and 5th grade seemed to not be as involved in the kids as the pre-k through 3rd grade. The staff was more "boring" not creative enough to engage the kids to learning activities. But other than that I love Northwood. They have a strong parent -teacher communication, PTA is very involved, nice building, most rooms are nicely decorated.

Northwoods is fantastic! I have one child in second grade, and an incoming kindergartener. Everyone seems to know each other, and parents are truly welcomed. It is a wonderful, family-oriented atmosphere. I highly recommend it.

I currently have a child in 1st grade at Northwood Elem. and my oldest went 1st-5th. My youngest will attend for Kind. this Aug. All of our children's experiences have been wonderful! Of course there been a few 'bumps' here and there which were overcome. One of my regrets is that I didn't go ahead and send my oldest to K at Northwood-if I had she would have been reading much sooner. My son has Mrs. Renick this year and she is a fabulous, young, caring teacher. She and Mrs. Hicks (K) have absolutely provided the groundwork for my son to be successful in school and to LIKE school! He is truly Happy at Northwood and that is the best reward a parent/child can recieve! It doesn't matter 'where' a child goes to school, it's about the teachers who build the foundation for positive learning experiences that last a lifetime!

My daughter was in K with Ms. Burken at Northwood and she is a very, very young 5 yr old who is very hyperactive with a very high IQ. At first she had great difficulty conforming to regular classroom behavior and wanted very much to do flips instead. Ms. Burken and the Speech Therapist teachers worked with her very closely and after a very short while, my child was coming home with smiley faces everyday, when at first we thought we were just going to have to take her out. We moved after just a few months, so I can't say much about the school as a whole, but I can say this, Ms. Kathlene Burken is one top-notch K teacher, any school smart enough to have her on staff is tops in my book.

My son was in Pre-K at Northwood after being transferred from another High Point Elementart School that was below average. We loved the teachers that worked my child and were pleased with how hard they worked to ensure that he had all of the tools that he needs to be prepared for Kindergarten. I can't say enough about the principal there. He is totally awesome! Very involved and genuinally concerned about the student's performance.
