    I love this school!!!! From the amazing administrators teachers and every single staff member... They love kids have high academic rigor and work diligently for every student. I have two children there now and my third can't wait to attend. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. I am valued as a parent communication is abundant and I know my kids are safe and happy there. We are so blessed by North Joshua Elementary School!

    My son has been at this school for three years now and I cannot say enough good things about it! The kids are actively engaged and challenged each day. The PTO is outstanding and works extremely hard to provide as many resources as possible to their teachers and students. North Joshua Elementary is an outstanding school!!

    Great school!!! I don't think we could find another school like this elsewhere. The teachers are great dedicated people who love what they are doing. The participation of parents is huge and I believe that makes a huge difference from other schools. Can not say enough about NJE

    My girls have attended NJE since the 1st and 2nd grades. We bought our house specifically so our girls could attend this campus. I believe it has been the best decision we have made as parents to ensure their academic success. The principal vice-principal and every teacher have raised the bar and set their expectations higher and the students respond accordingly. Thank you NJE!

    This is a great school. The Principal and the staff really care about the kids and their education. Any time I had a issue or concern it was addressed and options prevented and implemented. So far it has been a great experience.

    When I was hired as a teacher the principal mentioned during the interview process that if I was hired on it would be the best place I had ever worked but also the hardest place to work. She was right. It is by far the best campus I have ever had the pleasure to work at. The campus atmosphere is one that exudes success from the minute you walk in the door. It is indeed the hardest place to work because the staff is dedicated to doing whatever it takes to help the kids experience success. If it means giving up conference periods tutoring for many hours or writing positive notes home each teacher does their part to contribute to the quality of the campus & successful student performance.

    I have three children who have attended this school for the last six years and from kindergarten thru the fifth grade everyone of their teachers have had a positive influence on my girls been an outstanding role model and went above and beyond to insure that my children get a high quality education. My girls love going to school and what parent could ask for more?

    This school is great. The administration is first rate. The teachers are experienced and caring. I believe children who attend this school will have a advantage and be well prepared when they move up to middle school.This school also is excellent for any child who may have a disableity they go above and beyond to fufill any need that the child or parent may have. My hats off to them!

    I love this school. The teachers are great [and] I love the fact that the teachers and even the principals will go outside and play kickball with these kids. All of my teachers in elementary were too stuffy to do that.
