Northwoods is a great school. Both of my children have gone through this school and have had great teachers/experiences there. the school is brand new in a beautiful area. The teachers go above and beyond my expectations to give the kids opportunities they may not experience otherwise. NFAA also had art as a resource which the other schools don't have and that is something my children loved! The PTO is also amazing! As a parent I can't ask for a better place for my children to begin their education.
I cannot express how impressed I am with this school! The leadership and staff are wonderful and I feel so fortunate that my daughter has the opportunity to learn, grow, and build her educational foundation there! So thank you Northwoods for being such a blessing in our lives.
My Children go to this school. It is infested with scorpions. One of my children was stung. I here they can't get rid of them. Also this school lacks communication with its parents about what is really happening. The district needs to get rid of the adminastration. The principle there is out of touch.
I am very disappointed with the staff at this school. The principal and staff are not open minded nor are they family friendly. They never want to listen to the students or parents. There is a communication problem with staff and families. Staff at times can be very pert and rude.
We were very disappointed with this school. The principal is uncooperative and difficult to get an appointment with or phone call from. The education is sub-par and the teachers speak very harshly with the children.
I think this school is great. My daughter is in kindergarten there and she loves it. Not only is my daughter reading above her age level but she is learning more than I would have imagined. I am glad that she has this school.
Very dissappointed in my child's education at this school. The first 6 weeks there was no full-time teacher. Substitutes came in and out of the classroom until a fulltime teacher finally came aboard. The first parent teacher conference the substitute for the week did not even attend and no one could tell me how my child was doing. Now 2 months before school is over, the teacher has finally mentioned that we need to have a conference since my child is having difficulty. There has been almost no communication from this teacher throughout the year on my child's progress. Homework assignments do not have clear instructions. It is difficult to get in contact with the teacher and several days go by without a return call. Notes to the teacher go without notice or return comments.
Well i attend this school as well in the 80's and my children attend it now. So i think that its an awesome school and distict. The teachers and principle are nice and friendly and ever one works together. They have awesome programs, and the timeout room is a great wonder if you have a child that is kinda wild. this school knows how too treat and handle the disabilty kido's that need one on one attention for help.
I have had two children attend this school. The leadership there is lacking. The principle is not parent friendly, drop off and pick up is terrible. The should offer a before school program to help working families. They have had a large teacher turn over.
This is a mediocre school. I attended is in the late 80's and it was great. My mother had no issues with the quality of education then. However, now it is under 'new' management. The principal is fair at best. She does not like confrontation about issues with teachings styles, teachers, or issues regarding her students. It wasn't until the fifth conversation on the same issue that my concerns were even addressed. Some of the teachers are great and some are terrible. I have talked with several other parents who feel about the same. If you are going to be living in this school district, I suggest you put in for a transfer or you are truly gambling with your child's education. Quality is not a word to be associated with this school.
