Northwest Elementary School Reviews
Not very pleased with Northwest Elementary at all. This was my boys first year of coming to that school. Every other week they were getting in trouble on the bus for no reason what so ever, there bus driver wouldn't even let them put there windows down when it was in the 90's !! When you try to talk to the school they have no control over the buses , and when you try to call the district all you get is voicemails or someone saying they will contact me back. And it never happens, my kids have never been in trouble at there old school!! ....... My kids didn't even get their report cards or any kind of paper letting us know when school was starting back. So when I called the lady was like I'm sure they passed. Well being sure isn't enough. It's kind of exciting to a child to see there grades and see how good of a job they did. I think this school has a lot of lack of communication bad!!! If I had it my way my boys would definitely switch back to there old school.
I am very pleased with Northwest Elementary. My daughter, Diana, has attended Northwest for the passed two years. She loves her teachers and enjoys learning. The teaching at NW is an awesome school. Thank you for teaching my daughter.
Our school is a nice school. It is one of the newest in our county. My girl is in 5K, and my son went there when he was small. He will graduate from high school this year. They did not seem to have very much experience with kids who are not compliant, my son had ADHD and he had a hard time in school. But, my daughter seems to be doing great so far!
