A new principal who is amazing and assistant principal who is very involved with the pta. Great teachers! This school has turned around and the 3 rating is out of date. If any doubt schedule a tour! You won't be disappointed

This school is all I hoped when I moved to Texas. Being from a place where Spanish is our first language my daughter just knew the basic English. The teachers, the librarian and staff are great they helped her so much. Now she can have a conversation with anybody and she loves to read in English. She is staying at this school until 6th grade.

Northlake is so much more than we could have hoped for-the differentiated learning has really helped my son (kindergarten) not to be bored and to be challenged, academically! The faculty and staff are incredible and will absolutely do anything for "their kids". We are kept so in the loop on what's happening and really feel that we are part of a team.

We love this school! The teachers, principal and librarian are wonderful. The facility is awesome and the location is ideal - right across from a library and just down the street from the high school, the center of the community.

We bought our home in 2008 when we were pregnant and it has been so amazing seeing the neighborhood and families get behind our neighborhood school. Currently my daughter is a kindergartner at NLE and she loves it. The teachers are amazing, the kids are well behaved and the PTA is getting stronger every year. The teachers have perfected differentiated learning and take the RISD rule of "every child deserves to advance one grade level from where they started the year". Love it, send your kids there...you will not be disappointed.

We have a new principal (she began 2013-2014 school year) who has completely transformed the culture of this amazing school, we have a new Assistant Principal for this school year (2014-2015) who is absolutely engaged and committed to the students, faculty and PTA. The PTA has made leaps and bounds, fully participating at the district level and pioneering many events and opportunities for community involvement. I am so proud to have a kindergartner at this incredible school that is benefiting so much from dedicated faculty and most of all leadership from the Principal and assistant principal-the students are loved as if they were their own, and in so many ways they are! WILD ABOUT NORTHLAKE!!!

I absolutely love NLE. Every school has its issues but these teachers truly care about the students often giving more than required of their time and resources... I took my daughter out for one school year...omg. big mistake..I moved her right back...NLE rocks!!!

'Just started here this year, so its early yet. The kids seem pretty happy here so far, but there are issues... Unsafe and absolutely ridiculous drop off and pick up situation. Very short recess, and not a "healthy" atmosphere. Candy is given as rewards or sold after school for fundraising. Give kids candy and dont give them recess and wonder why there are behavioral issues sometimes? hm... I'm keeping a positive attitude though and hoping. Be the change, right?

This could be a great school. Due to lack of leadership and absence of parent involvement it is not. Whatever happened to the PTA or lack of it? They were absent this school year. There are some really great teachers at NLE,but leadership is .....need a new principal. I sent in a form to be contacted by the "PTA" for volunteer oppurtunities,no one contacted me. I will be moving my kids to another school, when the school year is over. Not happy with NLE.

My child has attended this school for a few grades & I can say that the principal lacks severe leadership skills. Teachers are constantly coming and going, or switching grades during the middle of the school year due to their high level of inexperience. The staff lacks capability of controlling morning school traffic, I've seen at least 4 children come close to being hit by a car for lack of staff supervising traffic. Parents are NOT allowed inside the school, feels more like visiting a prison than a school. I'm counting the days until the llast day of school since this is my child's last year here. Absolute nightmare of a school.

I must say that the overall experience at NLE for my daughter has been a good one. She is a 6th grader this year and has attended there since 1st grade. We have been very fortunate to have had some really GREAT teachers at NLE. . Yulonda

Northlake has an amazing pre-k program, however, I would not recommend this school beyond pre-k. There is a new principal, so the moral may be boosted, but I would suggest visiting the school and classrooms before enrolling your child.
