We went from a very supportive, great culture at elementary school to an assembly line, low-support school here at NLMS. I am extremely disappointed in their ability to support special needs children. I am livid at the suggestion that we 'discipline' the medically documented disability out of our child. Constant battles to have simple assistance/reminders/support from teachers has been met with cold, uncaring stonewalling and reduced support as if to punish. 2 years here will be too much - looking into alternative home school, private school as we speak. The frustration and tears have to end for our family.

North Lake middle school is excellent. Their challenge classes and Algebra 1 are great. Students learn a lot without being overwhelmed by homework. Teacher communication is pretty good. Ability to see grades online via Family Connect is very convenient. My son is finishing his 3rd semester there and so far absolutely nothing negative to report.

This goes for the district as a whole, reasons are too numerous to detail: the joy that will surround the proud accomplishments of my child(ren)'s graduation will be overshadowed by the elation that I will never have to set foot or cross the threshold of these schools ever again! They would much rather throw our kids under the bus then make factual referrals of any incident in order to absolve themselves, the school and/or district, of any and all responsibility. Even if the school isn't at fault. Bottom line your kid loses in order for the school to win and be on top in any potential legal matter. It's by far a more appalling and egregious act of abuse on a child that I have ever seen by falsely accusing and branding a child. Your child(ren) learn that they have no rights and are detained without parental notice until after they done the "fact" findings. This district, and possibly any public school, is the most dysfunctional lot of individuals (with the exception of a few) and policies that go way beyond deciency and common sense. The only reason they can keep their doors open is because the large sums of your hard earned tax dollars are stolen to pay for it.

It's a good school regardig the teaching staff. The administrators, including the principal and vice-principal have a poor displinary plan for the student's safety. Special Education teachers need improvement on professional communication.

We have a son with Aspergers. He is gifted but struggles with social skills. The school has not responded to our requests for help in teaching him how to read body language. The administration has been very passive. My son had to be removed from this school and home-schooled for the rest of this year because safety has been a huge issue for him. The Connnected Math curriculum that they use is terrible too. It leaves big gaps where they should be learning important steps.

My husband and I have been very pleased with my son's progress at North Lake Middle school. The teachers and administrators have been quick to respond to any questions or concerns we have. They are supportive and encouraging to my son. I would like to see a little more rigorous Writing curriculum. All in all though it has been a very positive school for my son to attend. I hold the teachers and administrators in high regard despite some things we might not see eye to eye on.
