My son is in kindergarten at this school and has the BEST teacher. She has motivated him and he is reading and achieving beyond my expectations. This school wants to work closely with the parents and values volunteers and parent involvement. My daughter will start kindergarten here next year. I am looking forward to many wonderful years here and would not want my children anywhere else.
We have had our kid in this school since Kindergarten and he is now getting ready for 3rd grade and we can honestly state that this school is top notch. We have been happy with the performance of the teachers and staff at the school. Because this is a public school it is hard to get great teachers since the private schools tend to pay more but this doesnt seem to be evident since all the teachers, he has had, have been wonderful and I couldnt think of sending my kid anywhere else. If we had money for private schools we would still have our kid go to this school as we have had such a great experience here and the school DOES care about the students. This is an All Year school which took getting used to being from the northeast but we love it now that we realize that he doesnt get bored during breaks since its only 1 month off. We also love the " Soar" program. Show self-control Operate safely Act Responsibly Respect Yourself and Others This has been great for the kids to learn as this seems to be the most evident thing missing in kids these days...Respect Dont think twice pick this school it is well worth it!
We have been at this school four years and up until now we have been happy here. The teachers have been great. Unfortunately, my child's kindergarten teacher had to take a family medical leave and the principal chose to rotate subs every three weeks instead of hiring a permanent sub for the classroom (and one was available that we had for six weeks prior) and when asked why she was not returning he said "he wasn't able to "acquire" her....SHE WAS NOT ASKED! We have had six plus teachers this year in kindergarten and "subs for the subs" during their 3-week stint! Twenty plus parents went to him and voiced our concerns and we were not heard. He made an executive decision and would not even consider what was best for our children. He puts on a good show (standing out at carpool every day etc.) but don't expect him to do what is best for children (except his own...his kindergartner is in the other class!). This same situation with subs has played out in at least two other classrooms over the past couple of years! He is a narcissist and cannot be trusted to make the best decisions regarding children...only himself!
My daughter has been at NFP for two years now, and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are excellent, and the administration is great as well.
North Forest Pines is a new year round school (opened for the 2007-2008 school year). The principal is very involved, the staff seems quite happy and excited to be there, and I have seen such great things happen there. My daughter is now a first grader and we have been thrilled with her teachers (kindergarten and first grade), as well as the specials teachers. I have found the administrators to be very open and accessible, and everyone wants the school to be successful.
i just love the expirence my child is have this year im proud to say this is a wounderful school.!.
