i have a daughter attending at this school, now; before she was in another school and she was doing excellent, with 90-100's, then she came here and somehow grades are staying low always...in this school they not only need to fix the school home page in the internet, but also make sure the teacher are doing their best for a change on their students. the school is very disorganize and they dont have any extra curricular activities..i believe this school needs alot of change and soon!!- to be one day reconized!!

My daughter has been at this school for 5 years now and I think this school is great.The teachers really work with the children to accomplish the goals set forth by the district.They work hard in every area,sometimes there is a lot of homework but if you expect to learn it takes a lot of effort.This school teaches you that as long as you are willing to work at it you can accomplish anything and I think our children really need to remember that.The only negative thing I can say is that I don't care for the fact that the teachers don't demand the 'yes sir,no sir' respect that they deserve.I think that all children should have that respect for their teachers as well as their parents.Over all the teachers and principle have helped my daughter grow into a very smart young lady.We will really miss Northline next year.
