Map of Northway Elementary School address.

My son came to Northway Elementary this year, as a third grader from Woodland Hills. We were a bit apprehensive of the cultural differences (his previous school was about 50% African American), and being Latino, were worried about him having a hard time fitting in with the majority white school. Those fears were unfounded, and we couldn't be happier with our choice to move to the North Hills school district, specifically Northway Elementary. The teachers, staff and other students are terrific, I just hope this caring atmosphere carries on in the transition of Northway Elementary ans McIntyre merging next year.

Northway is a warm, caring school. With a population of only 240 children, the teachers and staff and know each of the students by name. The staff is friendly, professional, and child-centered; and our PTA is second to none.

Wonderful, caring learning environment. Small class sizes. Active PTA. Children are not just a number, they are known by the entire staff. Teachers are top-notch.
