Medicate and indoctrinate is the schools way. They set our children up to fail and turn them against christianity.

5 star. My son received extra help in reading and is well above average now. Teachers here really care about the kids. I'm confused on how its rated only 4 on this site? Definitely a 10/10!

Excellent. I haven't encountered any major issues except for a couple minor incidents which were dealt with professionalism and in a timely matter. Matters resolved positively.

2 kids in this school, teachers are hit or miss. My oldest child this year is finishing the 4th grade and I feel as if the year was wasted. I just went to his school because they had an "open house" and I inspected his desk and his books. It is almost the end of the school year and he has barely gone through less than half of his 4th grade math book. Clearly that math book was not worn. All this year I have been asking "what did you learn today" and he would not tell me. I have no idea what he has been doing in school all day. I have resorted to teaching him math myself and I bought an online math course as well. But hey, they have edmodo and ipads. I am this close to withdrawing him from school and start home schooling. My other child at this school does not have any issues, not yet anyhow.

I have had children attend North Elementary continually since 2009. There have been exceptional teachers and a couple that did not cut it. I believe Mrs. Hornberg, the Principal, has a good grasp of what is going on in the classrooms, which leads me to believe she has good communication with the teachers. I have been involved in various aspects of parent volunteering (and there are many opportunities to get involved), and have never seen anything I didn't like. My children do not have behavioral issues or learning difficulties, so I can't say how those situations are handled other than some experiences we had with "bullying". Although, I tend to disagree with some of the discipline practices, my concerns were addressed and eventually rectified. I believe, as a whole, North is an excellent school for learning and nurturing. They offer many extra curricular events and programs. The staff really gets to know all of the children and at least recognize the parents. Mrs. Hornberg has always promptly addressed any questions or concerns I have brought to her attention.
