    I'm graduating from this school and I will miss it dearly. The teachers are really strict and they care about the student's education. They try to help each one of us to do well on the CST tests that occur during May.

    My family members past and present have attended Northrup since 1983. This school is a great place to learn. Our children need to focus and stay on program. These teachers do their best. Problems that do arise are addressed and dealt with. We as parents need to do are part too. A mom of a 22 19 11 & 10 years old Northrup Alumni's and Attending. I love Northrup and it's staff.

    I pulled out my child from this school since the teaching standards are very poor especially 4th and 5th grade. Some teachers do not have capabilities.
