Dr. Oliver, Mrs. Walker and Mr. Underwood are the best. The sixth grade teachers really care and work for the kids. My daughter talks about them all the time and loves it there. Thank you all. Happy Parent

I'm an eight grader at Northview Middle,and I have to say that I love this school. The only thing I don't like is having to pay for the dance and movies. Other wise it's superb!

I like this school. But having student pay cash for award dances and such to me is crayz. If it is and award then why do they have to pay..My daughter is an honor roll student and they dont award them like they should..They have some very strange ways about this school. I wish it was alittle different.But like i said it is a good school.And i dont like the bus system.Jojo

I have to comment about what a great support Mrs. Walker was last year. We had a tough time with our 5th grader, and totally expected that there would be little understanding to his problems. I was AMAZED at the way Mrs. Walker handled our situation and overall solved our problem. I can't say he loves school, but he knows there are people there to help him thru a bad day. That has made not only a difference in him, but us not having to worry about how things were being handled at school if he was having an off day. I have to say all the teachers except one have been so easy to talk and listened. I think that school should be fun and they should be allowed to laugh and have friends so that it is a place to not only learn but have fun.

Well Mr Davis and Mrs Walker, another great year has passed. Thanks to you and all the teachers for doing a good job not only with my son but for the community. It is a good feeling to get up in the morning and know you don't have a problem getting your child to school because he really wants to go. My third child will be attending middle school next year and she can't wait. Northview has grown and continues to get better and to see the graduates of 2006 come out on top that went to Northview only makes me a proud parent knowing my children go there. Teachers you're doing a great job with the children of our community. A big Thank You!

I have to disagree with the last two peoples comments. I think the school is wonderful. My children have made great improvement since they have started there. If your child does not complete their classwork it becomes homework, that is not the teachers fault. I have not came across any staff there that was not willing to help my children. In fact when my daughter started attending that school she was barely passing, now she is almost A - B Honor Roll. Mr. Davis and Mrs. Walker keep up the good work. You have excellent teachers. The only thing I would have to say that might be negative would be about the sports. There is not much put into the other sports as what is put into football. I think that might need a little more work.

This has to be one of the finest schools that I have observed. One thing is the cleanliness of the cafeteria. There are cafeterias I would not let my dogs eat in but this one is as fine as I have ever seen. The administration has a firm hand on discipline. The teachers are among the finest in the area. Overall I would move my child to this school if I thought he/she would need the teaching and discipline this school has available.

Northview has done a very good job considering the population they serve. I am one of only a handful of professional parents at this school and know how hard the teachers work and how little support they have. Parents - don't send your kids to school without homework, or check up on how they're doing and then complain that they don't learn anything. Without us, parents, teachers can only do so much especially when a kid is not taught the basics of respect and responsibility. Keep up the good work, teachers! Thank You!

Last year the school the school got off the target list. The teachers worked very hard to achieve this. I feel the staff is excellent this year for my sixth grader. She really likes it and loves the teachers. They have been nothing but kind and helpful to us. The principal does his best for the kids and works very hard. The parents (Cougar Club) are much more involved than in past years.

Overall a good school. Could be some improvements though.

I have to totally disagree with the last two reviews. The teaches at Northview work very had and have always been kind and cooperative with me and my two sons. My one son had trouble reading (4th grade level) and their new reading program has put him at 7th now! My other son is on honor roll...hooray! Both my kids love it there.

Posted August 26, 2003

After having completed one year at this school, I was of the same opinion as the other parent concerning Northview. No parent involvement (volunteerism), the teachers tend to send the work home instead of teaching the children and the list goes on. Not a very positive overview compared to the other schools in the county.

My son education at 5th grade appear to spiral downward. The school at the time allow for no parent help, no pto, and distain for any parent involvement that could be considered negative. With very few exceptions most of the parents I know have felt the same way.
