I have had children at North Park for a span of seven years and have never had any problems. The staff and principal go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and really listen and follow through with issues the school faces. This is a well run, charming, small public school that everyone I know at school is happy with.

I found the school greatly lacking the ability to nuture and educate my children well. They did not finish all the required material each year in math. The teacher is quoted as saying I'm to busy to ensure that your child does quality work, I can't get these kids to do what is need even one time. The teachers and administration think that verbal intimidation is an acceptable form of punishment. The prinicpal is seen carrying children that misbehave to his office on a daily basis. There is little to no parents involvement and many restrictions on when and how they are able to volunteer.
