As the parent of a recent graduate, I'm thrilled to be out of NPS. My child is in no way prepared for high school. Circle time in middle school? Come on! Hopeful that the LSC will step up and realize they are the principal's boss and require exceptional performance from the principal.

No art. No music. No technology teacher. No librarian. All the kids do is test, test, test. Some teachers are compassionate and friendly. Administration is not responsive and not empathetic to kids. Too much turmoil with staff and administration and parents. Not a fun place for kids or teachers.

Norwood Park School WAS an excellent/wonderful/amazing school. With the recent mass exodus of teachers, administration, students, and families moving out of the neighborhood because of the decisions of principal, I have to wonder if some of these other reviews are from people wearing rose colored glasses ...  Read more
