We love this school! The principle is involved in every aspect of the school. From being outside during pick up/drop off times to attending PTO meetings and observing classrooms. My kids are thriving and challenged! Everyone is very friendly and always ready to help with any concern. From other parents that I have spoken with..it's the best elementary in Rock Springs.

Why such low score? Based on PAWS tests - Northpark students are well above state goals. My daughter has done very well here. The environment is relaxed but the learning/education occurs continually. I love how the teachers incorporate reading with math with history in asingle lesson, for example.

I was surprized to see the scores of this school not to be higher. The entire staff of the school seems to be doing good things for kids and people are always welcome.
