I am a foster parent and I went into the school having never enrolled a child before. They made it as easy and painless as possible. Everyone there from the Principal to the janitor has been wonderful. The communication with parents is excellent and their commitment to their students is wonderful.

Good school. All teachers above average and many I would classify as excellent. Has really good music, art, title I and PE teachers/programs. All kids seem to get along well and no bullying noted.

Northfield Elementary is one of the best schools that I have had my children in. We have moved many times over the years (military) and have been a part of many schools. Northfield has everything a parent could want for their child. Academics, Sports, Music, etc. Mr. D. is a wonderful, caring, and involved principal. All parents should consider themselves very blessed to have such a wonderful school to send their children to. Thank you to the teachers and staff for teaching my children.

I'm thinking the review before mine must have been from a different school. That doesn't describe Northfield at all in my eyes. You are only involved as much as you want to be. Parents have to make an effort to be part of the team. I know for a fact that every child is treated the same and made sure that each and everyone gets to participate whether they have money or not. Just disappoints me that someone could say those things about such a great school.

My children have attended Northfield for quite some time. Out of 9 teachers that my children have had there, 2 are really there for the children. There is too much turnover in the principal position, and Mr. Dronebarger is more about being 'right' than being for 'the children'. It is like being in high shcool all over again with the cliches among the parents and staff. Very money driven school...if you don't have alot of it, your kids are left out. Despise this school.

Northfield Elementary is a great school. There is a real sense of community there for the parents who choose to be involved. There are lots of opportunities to be involved as a parent and that is so important to a child's success in school. The academics are outstanding, as are all the teachers and staff. I am so thankful to be a part of this school community!

Well...the smaller the school..the more favoritism there is. All teachers children seem to make the sports teams..pics in the yearbooks....never one turned down yet as I know of....simply aggravating. Been through too many principals in the past few years...if it is 'the best school in white county'...why the turn over? The lunches at this school.....horrible.

Northfield Elementary School provides a very postive and caring learning environment for the students. I have three children attending, and I am very pleased with the 'well rounded' activities available to the students, such as: music, art, library, sports, and computers. Northfield has a terrific PTO program and active involvement between the principal, teachers, parents, and students. Keep up the good work ! -Robert M.
