    Both of my kids have been attending Northwood since K and they have received an excellent education! The teachers are outstanding. Both have been able to participate in PE Art and Music programs that are not widely available in other schools.

    I like the student to teacher ratio the science lab and the field trips are pretty cool. I do not like that they don't have recess and gym class is everyday but doesn't seem to tire them out much. It is horrible that art is not a part of the program but t nutrition is. I'd rather have my daughter have Art to be able to show off her creativity than learn basic nutrition. No problems with staff or principal. My daughter has made a few good friends. They just start to early in the day for elementary school.

    We moved here when my son was in 3rd grade we moved him from a Christian private school with many concerns about teachers student attitudes and the curriculum. But I have been extremely pleased with the wonderful teachers and staff at this school. They have a desire to see all students excel. We have a diverse group of children who attend and the control of the classrooms could not be better. It is true that the Principle is not seen but to me that is a good thing. That means all is well and being handle without a stong hand. Now the FCAT is a pain in everyones side inculding teachers students and parents. FCAT is studied on a daily basis to get high scores on the tests. But that is in every school in Florida. My son is now in 7th grade and in all excellerated classes.

    I'm suprised by the earlier post. Northwood has a variety of activites for students to be involved in at school. Northwood has music education and every student attends weekly my child talks about her music class all the time. The PTO sponsors Oval Art. Northwood sponsors a Tech Bowl team Safety Patrol Morning Show crew and Student Council. They also have the Good News Club after school.

    I am very disappointed in the school...No art music or any extra activities. The principal is rarely on campus and seems to care more about FCAT than kids.

    My son attended Northwood kindergarten this year. His teacher was wonderful--extremely attentive communicated frequently and worked dilligently with the children. They do have an advanced reading program which appears to be excellent. My two disappointments school lunches and lack of a foreign language program. While I realize a foreign language immersion program is probably too much to hope for at this point I do think all elementary students should receive some education in foreign language beyond learning the days and months in Spanish. The principal is very interested in such a program but I believe funding is prohibiting it at this point.

    Northwood has been a pretty good School but I was very disappointed with them last year.

    The teachers are wonderful. They have been very patient with my children and always find time to discuss my many concerns. The teachers which my family has dealt with are caring respectful and go the extra mile to see to it that our students succeed in life; However the office personel need to work on their people skills. The principle appears to be in an awful lot of meetings keeping her from having much needed time with parents and their concerns. I was disappointed that no form of Black History has been taught in the years of my childs attendance at Northwood. Northwood could greatly benefit from a nurse on school grounds.
