Northmoor Elementary School5

I have had 2 children, 2 nephews and 1 niece come through this school and I love it!!! Three of the 5 are adults now, 1 is in high school and the other still attends Northmoor. The previous principal was there for each of the students I listed, but this year we are welcoming a new principal due to district-wide changes. We were very sad to see him switch schools, but so far so good with the new principal! She has really done a great job focusing on the children's safety while getting acquainted in her new surroundings.
My daughter loves this school. I have to say I agree. Very pleased with the teacher and most of all principal. I really think he knows all the kids names. One of the things that impressed me the most is how the principal greets each student by name. He is also very easily approachable. My only regret is that we will be having to move this summer and cannot take the principal and teachers with us.
My son went to Northmoor for pre-k and his teacher was AMAZING! Mrs. Trent was so down to earth and patient with my son, and all of the children. Her classroom was neat and very organized, and my son always had wonderful things to say about his day at school. Her teaching assistant was also the most wonderful woman! My son grew to love both of them. He loved going to school and learned a great deal while in her class. Now my oldest son had the exact opposite experience in his kindergarten class. He was bullied, not only by his teacher but also by another child in the class. He never had homework, and the teacher REFUSED to speak with me about my son's progress. Little did I know he was behind in reading, which has continued into 1st grade, and she never EVER made me aware of this. She behaved as if the children were irritating her, and that she hated her job. I had a discussion with the principal and another teacher about her and they both agreed she was a stain on this wonderful school's image! I hope that she is fired and isn't allowed to ruin any other childrens kindergarten experience! If you can send your child somewhere else for Kindergarten, PLEASE DO!!
I have been a Northmoor All -Stars Parent now for 3 years! I have been extremely pleased with the teachers, staff and principal. They have always been very responsive to the needs of students and families. They have a great PTA---I only wish I could be more invovled. Keep up the good work and thanks!
Before attending Northmoor all we heard about was what a great school it was and how nice and friendly everyone is and we have not been disappointed. The Principal greats every student by name at the front door everyday. The teachers are children have had have been wonderful and by looking at the test scores they seem to have high academic standards. This is truely a great school!!!
Northmoor is a great school. Every teacher my daughter has ever had is caring, patient, and willing to help. They have all been very good about keeping the parents informed about my childs progress and she has learned more than i could have ever expected. Keep up the good work teachers!
