Amount of homework: Agree


- a
My oldest is in 3rd grade and I had heard from parents from a variety of schools that 3rd grade is hard. From day 1 the amount of homework he had this year was definitely more than last year, but he rose to the challenge. I realized the increased difficulty in homework-and the teacher's insistence that it be "student led" this year-was proportionate to his increased ability as a 3rd grader. Yes, it's hard, but it's just the right amount of challenge. Also both my 3rd grader and 1st grader LOVE to read. From day 1 in kindergarten the teachers emphasize reading and it is evident to me they both have found a lifelong love of learning.

The staff and teachers at this little neighborhood school are very invested in the students' success. Most of the parents are also very involved, which I think lends to the overall academic achievement of the student body. We moved to this neighborhood b/c of its proximity to downtown, but we're staying b/c of the school.

Mr. Koppes, the principal leads a group of fully committed teachers and faculty. The team is devoted to delivering an education to their students that will propel them successfully into middle school. They are focused on being a team that continues to grow as teachers. The students are a charming mix of several cultural backgrounds. My two daughters attend this school and are in 3rd and Kindergarten. We have been so pleased and happy with their teachers. There is a special spark and a wonderful atmosphere at the school. In 2014, North Hi Mount received a Bronze level award by the National Center for Urban Schools Transformation.

Each six weeks, each class recognizes a student champion. The student champion is the student in the class who exhibits the three focuses of North Hi Mount.

NHM is a hidden gem on the Westside. The school is small which is a benefit for the students. The principal is very passionate about this school and greets each student outside in the mornings. The PTA is up and running and growing each year. The teachers are very caring and involved in extracurricular activities with the school outside of their teaching duties. They have numerous clubs for kids to get involved in including Garden Club, Lights, Camera, Action (video production/newscast), Choir, Running Club and Art Club. They now have a dual language program for Spanish that will be in kinder and 1st grades for the 2014-2015 school year and will go on from there. Neighborhood support for the school is also improving year by year. This school really does function as a family. If you have any interest or concerns about this school you should definately make a visit to see for yourself.

Great location with a small, intimate setting. The classrooms are small giving each student more opportunity of the individual learning experience they may need. The entire staff is warm, loving and great with not only the students but the families as well.

Our experience with NHM has been exceptional! The school offers a variety of clubs for the students to participate in. (Choir, running, morning fitness, garden club, etc.) The current teaching staff/administration is extremely involved and its obviously they love what they do! They also have a very well organized and motivated PTA.

I was a student at this school and might I say this school was the worst. The students were terrible. This school was the absolute WORST with bullying. The mere fact that this has a seven makes me want to throw up.
