    The school does a poor job when it comes to bullying. The Hispanic children pick one the non Hispanic children and the guidance counselors and principal turn a blind eye. If you're not hispanic go to another school.

    Awesome school awesome teachers awesome staff. My son's teachers took a child who was struggling terribly at his prior school due to their failure to accommodate his needs and helped him develop and thrive beyond what we could have hoped for. My daughters' teachers have also been excellent. Very happy to have my kids in NGE! To the commenter who said the school is a "third world country " wow aren't you great! The high Hispanic population does nothing to detract from the excellent programs this school offers and shouldn't even be a factor in a review especially for someone who is becoming a teacher - for shame. Perhaps your perception of overcrowding was a side effect of your obvious racism as the teacher/student ratio is excellent at NGE as well.
