11 Parent Reviews for Northcrest Elementary School

I take back my earlier review. This school is uncaring, the teachers are indifferent, and the curriculum is weak. My kids were bullied and the teachers did not listen to them when they were informed of it. The principal snowballed us about it when confronted and my son, who ASKED for the hardest teacher ...  Read more

My daughter has been a student at Northcrest since kindergarten. She is on her way to fourth grade this year. Northcrest does have many negative elements, such as bullies, unconcerned staff, and many uninvolved parents. However, this school is a beacon of multi-cultural diversity. The new principal(Mr. ...  Read more

Unfortunately, this entire year has been a waste. Children are rude and very disrespectful both to teachers and other students. Bullying is a huge problem here and very little is done to stop it. Good students are not recognized or rewarded and are looked down on by other students.

There has been a great improvement this year at Northcrest. The principal is doing a wonderful job in keeping a positive learning environment.

Teachers seem to try very hard but this school is very, very bad. There is no disipline and there seem to be a disproportionate number of special ed / ESL kids.

This is a truly dreadful school. My second grader was constantly bullied and learned nothing. He has essentially forfeited a year of education by attending Northcrest. Discipline is non existent and instruction is ineffective. Chaos rules the hallways and thugs rule the playground. The only thing that ...  Read more

The school would be wonderful with a different principal. The teachers and other staff are caring and listen to parents concerns. Too bad the principal can not do the same. She is often unavailable or too busy to listen to parents concerns when it comes to the school. I am trying to get my child in another ...  Read more

Am trying to move just to get out of this school system. Principal is very unconcerned with what happens, doesn't return phone calls and I feel my children would have been more educated taking a year off from school.
