Terrible, communication is NONEXISTENT from what they are learning to progress to activities and special events/days you are on your own to figure it out. The school has a prison like atmosphere and I'm not referring to the security its the cold demeanor or the teachers and staff make the children and parents feel unwelcome

My children have received a great education at this school. The school cares about the intellectual and physical development of the children. We lived in the best school district in our prior state, and I would say our children’s education at this school has been on par.

The teachers and support staff are amazing. The administration is not. As other reviewers have noted, they have created a very tense environment. Kids are not even allowed to talk at lunch because the principal's office is close to the lunchroom and this disturbs her. Parents are not allowed to help expect for twice monthly volunteer days when they are allowed in the cafeteria for a specific time period and then told to leave.

When reading these reviews, please note that the administration changed at Christmas 2012. The current administration has created a very unfriendly environment. Volunteering seems to be discouraged other than for fundraising and large events such as field day and book sales in the library. In years previous to the change in administration, the volunteer room was busy with menial tasks that we as parents are happy to do. Headroom parents decorated hallway bulletin boards. Last year, that task was taken away and very little volunteer work was to be seen. This year, there have been no requests for workroom help. It is very sad that volunteers have been cut out of our school. Having young children see parents involved and helping out shows that parents place value in their education. There are so many negative things happening that as a parent I feel helpless to make a difference. Letters to the admin are not fully addressed and usually deflected without solutions presented or considered when offered. Walking into the front office and you can feel the tension. There is something terribly wrong with our school and no one seems to be able to break through to make positive changes.

I've had two children go thru N.Hampton Elm and one presently attending. I can say without hesitation this school does not have the children's education at heart. There were no problems with my first child, a classic learner and pleaser. My second child a sweet pleaser girl with ADD was a different issue. After a string of meetings and pleas for help with her reading, we were left with a big fat nothing! she is now a senior and has learned her own coping strategies, but still struggles. THANKS for NOTHING! Things have remarkably gotten worse with my son. He's currently being pushed thru even though his skills are well below his grade level. I had to beg for testing which resulted in nothing. His teachers have been for the most part completely devoid of any care or ability to do anything for him except repeat a worksheet till he "passes". I've never had a teacher's website be up to date ever! Heck half the time I have no idea what homework he has! The administration is equally as disconnected and unobliging. In a nutshell this school is terrible.
