Great experience here! Great support staff and communication with parents.

My children have been attending for 3 years now. The support from guidance and teachers has been amazing. We have only dealt with 1 teacher who we could have done without. But she certainly does not define the whole school. And every school has that teacher anyway.

My child had a great first year at Northwood elementary! He loved his teacher, he needed a little extra help with and was provided excellent support. Any time we had a concern or question his teacher and or guidance counselor were very helpful and kind. Great communication! My son is excited to start the new year.

This school was superb when my oldest attended. This year has been a different story. The leadership from the new principal has changed the environment in a negative way. The teachers are unhappy and that comes out in the academic area. Parent involvement is no longer a high priority. The principal has had 4 jobs in 3 years so hopefully she won't stay long.
