Norman Rockwell Elementary School5

This is our 1st yr at Norman Rockwell Elementary and I must say that our experience has only been positive.I was quite reluctant to move my son from his old school as I had heard mixed reviews but the fact that he came back after his 1st day at school and said "mom I like this school " was a big relief for me.The principal is hands on and is very helpful and the staff too is very nice! They helped him to transition very smoothly.
This school has a great principal and administrative staff who maintain the school discipline. The teachers are very dedicated and work great with all kids. .Additionally there are lot of programs run by the PTA which offer academic enrichment.
This is an outstanding school with great motivated teachers, strong administration and good academics. Not sure what the comment below about not trusting kids from other countries is about. We relocated here from Europe and our kid has been treated great. After just a single year at Rockwell he speaks fluent English and is passing all tests at or above the expected level.
I just can recommend this school to all children, doesn't matter a gifted one or the one who needs some help. You will reach your goal with a good, great and goal oriented teachers and principal. The office staff are very helpfull and very kind. Especially now, Rockwell is one of Achievement Award Winner. Congratulation!!!!
Parents are very involved with everyday school matters, teachers are excellent with the children. The office staff remember all students by their names, and they always make you feel welcomed when you walk in. Mrs. Livingstone is always around and easy to talk to. Glad our child is able to attend this school.
I'm amazed about this public school. Lots of volunteer, nice teachers...the only thing that I consider a problem is that the school is growing a lot each year and they are creating more and more classes for each grade. I do not know if it is good, because the school already is looking small. I hope they rebuild it soon. My daughter is in there and she really loves the school and we are happy with her improvement every year.
