Kindergarden Teaches are good. The are too eager to call days off due to weather, If they even think its going to snow they close the school. During slow days teachers revert to watching movies instead of working with student on future lessons or at cleaner handwriting.

We moved to Tullahoma for the schools and North Lake exceeded our expectations. I am so glad that our family chose North Lake Elementary. The teachers are outstanding and they really strive for learning. Mr. Butler the principal has done a great job also. This is a 10/10 school!!!

This school is a very good school. We moved my child three years ago from East Lincoln to North Lake because they were able to teach more science and social studies. We Like all the staff.
