    Northwood is a caring place that does a great job with all of the children. My son has had a great experience and has learned a lot. The teachers really care about helping the children! Ms. Adams and Ms. Alford always great the children and make them feel welcome.

    I attended north-wood as a 2nd grader and there aren't words that can describe my complete and utter disgust for this school. For all the parents out their that love and care for their kids don't send them to this school. The staff is rude the teachers allow your child to be picked on and I am simply ashamed of those monsters that made that school what it is. Pleas take deep thought in where to send your children because this is from the bottom of my heart the worst school in the world. If i could give zero stars that is what this school would receive.

    This is my sons first year at Northwood and I am more than pleased with his Teacher Mrs. Dunn! She has turned my son's mindset about school completely around. My husband & I are so greatful that there are teachers out there like her that care about the children!

    I now have three kids in this school and I once attended. This school to me is execellent.This school has and advance academic(ingenuity) program which refer you or try to give you an outlet of middle schools to attend and a tutoring after school program. The only negative thing I could say is that they have teacher who are still teaching sence I was there (1977)that may not have enough tolerence for theese baby boomers. Unfortunately one of my kids didn't follow the same footsteps as another child with teachers.She was selected to go to a teacher who was more concern about discipline then teaching. I'm not the only parent who notice this . The new Principle is down to earth and make you feel like your a part of his own family. MR. English recognize the parents and each child or children if you have multiple and put your situation into

    I am very please with the amount and level of homework given at the school. Teachers and staff are very friendly and welling to help. The school has a excellent after school program. The shcool has several clubs/activities for the students. Staff and student moral seems to be high. I am very pleased with the school. I feel that Northwood is one of the best if not the best elementary schools in Baltimore City.
