I'm the parent of a second grader and I couldn't be more pleased! I recently had some concerns about my daughters progression in reading.

It is taking students more than three (3) years to get an IEP at this school. Very slow to respond. Issues of bulling on campus and on the bus. Students are afraid to report bulling. Some young inexperienced teachers on staff who don't know how to handle inclusion. Sad thing is that the school can not ...  Read more

My child had a hard time adjusting and the teacher was not very helpful. Even though my child will be promoted, I feel that enough was not done to help my child. This schools way of teaching has yet to impress me. I may simply change schools which will be of inconvenience to me.

Although Northboro moved from one building an dtown to another this year, the adminisration and teachers didn't miss a beat. My child was academically challenged from the first day until the last. Northboro is a great school with a dedicated staff. Our family has been with the school for over 9 years ...  Read more
