North Springs elementary has done quite a bit of damage to my daughters self esteem after only 2 years.The majority of students at this school are African American, and my child (Caucasian), experienced terrible racial segregation while attending this school along with countless acts of bullying. . It is hard to explain to such a young child why people are picking on her because of the color of her skin. She began to fear going to school, became nervous and depressed, and often came home in tears due to the negative atmosphere she had to endure. The staff did very little...even after numerous concerns were brought to their attention. They actually seemed to brush it off. Needless to say, we pulled our daughter out of the school after we had finally had enough and will NEVER look back!! This particular school goes much deeper then the average school teasing scenario. It will take years to erase the damage done to her here. If you fall into the minority category for this school, I urge you to look elsewhere for their education. It is really sad that any type of racism still exists in 2013. In a nutshell, North springs elementary was a huge disappointment!
I rate this school at two stars because quite honestly, I just was not impressed with the school. My daughter attended 2-4th grade, and it has been a pretty difficult. experience for her. There are "some" good teachers there, and it boasts a mediocre learning environment, but the bullying is a seriously big issue there. The matter is not handled properly either. Very disappointing! She became depressed and her self esteem plummeted. She even started acting out. We ended up moving to get her away, and she is doing great now in a new home and new school. She is happy again in her school life. My advice to those looking at this school for your kids...do your homework before sending them here. I wish I had.
My child must have went to a different school from the other reviewers. While she had very positive results from the IEP program, everything else was lacking. Communication breakdowns were a constant thing between the teachers and myself and bullying was apparently out of control. It got so bad that I complained to the district, which also did nothing. They did not even respond to my emails. I moved during the summer to get her away from my school. She went from outgoing and friendly to withdrawn and sad in the course of a school year. A safe envoriment is important. NEVER AGAIN North Springs!
All three of my kids attend NSE, I'm very pleased with the activities, the grade of parent involvement and the communication among parents and teachers. My kids are Honor roll students and I feel the school does a great job at recognizing those students who excell. My oldest child is in QUEST and the hands on, and learning experiences he is receiving because of this program are incredible
My daughter was at this school for 4 years and my son,Nicholas Green is still attending in 3rd grade. We went to the school play tonight and I have to say...it was the best one ever! My daughter is at Summit Parkway now and is making straight A's. My husband and I feel like Lindsey had the best education at NSE and she was well prepared to go to middle school due to her exceptional education at NSE. Thank you all for everything you do!
The teachers here are great! I always feel very welcomed. There's excellent communication between school and home with weekly 'Cricket Times' and always prompt replies to emails. As my children move on to Middle School I'm very grateful to all the staff here who prepared them for acceptance into the advanced and honors courses.
The administration and staff are wonderful. They have an ALERT Program that my child likes. Overall it is a nice school.
