while welcoming, my child is not receiving an adequate education here. It is extremely disappointing and I now see why people move across town to get out of this district.

We moved here halfway through my son’s first grade year and found it welcoming. He’s made great progress in second and third both academically and socially. We are looking forward to another year and having our youngest enter kindergarten!

Our experience has been very good. Our son has some learning delays, and the support has been attentive, consistent and appropriate. The diversity of the school is fantastic, and we are grateful our white son has the chance to be led by teachers of various ethnicities.

Our two children (1st & 3rd) attend Northside, and we have been very happy with the school. The school fosters a strong sense of community in a diverse environment, and differentiated opportunities are available for gifted children. The librarian and the specials teachers are also outstanding.

My child had a very bad experience at this school and prior to departure ended the year feeling very worthless and unconfident. My child is now in a private school and having a much better experience. The leadership at the school seems to be mostly focused on afterschool programs for children who lack a place to go at the end of the day and other special programs for children who are disadvantaged or fall into a category that indicates they need extra support. Frequent testing and practices for testing occur. The curriculum is not very differentiated and children who test above average read a book while other children test, since the teacher is occupied with the testing. Behavior management is a major issue and takes up a significant portion of the day.
