    Northwood is a great school! In response to the last post challenges are great; but one shouldn't forget that you can overdo it. Are children losing the ability to cope with boredom? Children nowadays have more toys to distract them than ever before toys that are more sophisticated. This suggests they are bored because they are over- rather than under-stimulated. Where has it left them? Unable to hold their own attention I suspect. The more stimulation and choice children have been given the less patient they have become and the less capable of concentration. Being bored is a crucial part of childhood because bored children are forced to daydream to stand and stare to use their imaginations. If your child is complaining of being bored the kindest thing you can do is leave him or her alone in a room with a large cardboard box. It will soon turn into a spaceship.

    Sadly after months of trying to work with the teacher and principal we had to pull my son and do homeschooling. He was not challenged in the least. And when we asked for a challenge we were told- he is above level-- what more do you want? It was my fault that he had been given so many experiences. Very little parental involvement. Teachers seemed downtrodden.

    Love this neighborhood and this school! Principal Dr. Best is the best! My daughter loves Ms. Ferguson as her second grade teacher always upbeat with a smile on her face. You could tell the kids really love her.

    Excellent quality of academic programs large parent involvement with PTO Ohio reads and other activities. The student to teacher ratio is by far one of the best in the area. I have had one child in the school through 6th grade and now one in the 3rd grade. I highly recommend this school.
