    I don't have a superlative for Northpoint Elementary School. I've been on the PTO board for several years and have seen first hand the wonderful relationship the students have with the prinicipal office staff and teachers. The PTO provides many opportunities to have fun outside of the school day such as Fall Festival Science Night skating parties craft night etc. Academics and test scores are excellent consistently ranking among the best in the area. Northpoint is an Indiana 4-Star school and has been nominated for the national Blue Ribbon award.

    Northpoint is a wonderful school. My two girls have been going there for a few years now and we had nothing but a great experience so far. The teachers staff and principal makes the school wonderful.

    Northpoint is absolutely the best elementary school in Granger. Office staff knows most of the students names and the principle is wonderful! Four star blue ribbon school. Teachers are excited to be there and so are the kids. Very high morale and extremely high parent involvement. Great diversity seen among students and test scores are very high. Lots of PTO extra curricular activities. Great neighborhoods with young families close to restaurants and shopping. Northpoint is the right school for your kids and again I can't say enough positive things about the awesome teachers!

    I have triplets plus one at Northpoint. The quality of education and support services is excellent. My children are excelling at Northpoint both academically and socially. There is high parent involvement and the teachers are wonderful. Test scores remain high. Neighborhoods that feed into this school are a great place to live with lots of kids. I give Northpoint my highest recommendation! Kim Wagner Granger IN
