    The staff at Northpointe Academy is outstanding. The staff goes beyond 3 p.m. everday. They come in early spend their own money for classroom and student needs. Our teachers work with our parents to make sure our students can reach their full potential. Students who attend this school are exposed to compassion love concern excellent teaching and creative lessons. The leadership is in concert with the entire staff to make sure that teaching and learning is at its highest level. Northpointe Academy truly believes that all children can learn.

    This is my third year as a teacher at Northpointe Academy. I have seen Northpointe grow over these years and with the combined help of our positive administration dedicated staff and hard working students this is the best year Northpointe has experienced. Children are improving academically and MEAP scores are rising. Northpointe has proudly made AYP for this school year! Our administration has made many positive changes this year for the good of our children and the school as an entirety. The school is filled with dedicated and passionate teachers who are there because they care about the children in the classrooms and the school as a whole. Teachers go above and beyond their call of duty to ensure every child is successful in what they do. The passion the staff shows on a daily basis is the foundation of the school. Passion which holds us together and keeps us going.

    This is a school for students who want to excel and succeed in life. We encourage our students to achieve their personal best and expand their horizons. The staff is dedicated and diverse the specials teachers are better than in most schools and the new administration is actively implementing improvements on a weekly basis. This is a radically different school as of this year. NPA has rid itself of ineffective management and is now independent. We are continuing to improve and expand by leaps and bounds and next year is bringing plenty of exciting additions and improvements.

    Northpointe has seen many improvements this year. We have a wonderful staff that gives their time and energy to make the school a quality place for students to succeed. We have a great principal that cares about the school and wonderful teachers that connect with their students and consistently work hard to make NPA a great place to learn. Northpointe has great after school programs; academic tutoring cheerleading basketball sister to sister brother to brother girl scouts and latchkey. I truly enjoy working at Northpointe and get inspired daily from working with our creative and hard working students.

    This school is an excellent school because it offers a good curriculum with alot of good teachers and staff that are genuinely interested in helping the children. They also have alot of extra curricular activities to help the children stay busy and out of trouble. This school is also family oriented and has many activities and events for the whole family.

    In addition to state aligned classroom instruction creative outside the box learning and hands-on life experiences throughout the school day Northpointe offers after school activities for students. After school tutorial is offered for first through eighth grade where students work in small groups to enhance their learning. A variety of after school activities such as Girl Scouts basketball cheerleading and Sister to Sister are offered to children throughout the school year. Morning and after school latchkey are also available to Northpointe families. We are a school that is always moving forward. Northpointe Academy holds a positive outlook for itself and the children who are a part of us.

    There is a lot of potential for this school. The administration this year is more supportive and consistent with following through on the school's policies. The teachers are dedicated to helping the children learn to their best ability. The school needs more parents support to flourish to where everyone wants it to be.

    I believe the school is a good school and like any other school has room for improvement. With time it will build and continue to flourish.

    I am a former student of this school when it was St. Benedict. I went here from Kindergarten to Eighth grade. I have a vested interest in seeing this school succeed. I taught at the school for three years and now I am the Dean of Students. The school has made AYP for this year and is having the best year since becoming Northpointe Academy. The staff is more dedicated and dilligent than the general public may ever know. The student population is excellent. The after-school program is growing and growing. Mr. Goodley is a capable and dynamic principal. Mrs. Mims is deeply connected to Highland Park and works tirelessly on behalf of the students and city of Highland Park. All in all Northpointe is a great school heading upwards!

    This was the worst year teaching at Northpointe Acacemy. The PTSA wasn't allowed to raise funds. The students were out of control. There was know disipline at all this year. The vision for Northpointe Academy is bright and as long as the right people are in place the school has promise. They need real after school programs that the children will want to attend. They also need to replace a few teachers.

    The best thing they did was get rid of ESI. They need more after school programs. The mentoring programs are great Brother2Brother and Sister2Sister needs to cover lower grades also catch them while they are younger. Would love to see Sharon Taylor back at the school. Needs to change the uniform colors other then that I love the school

    I have had children in this school since 1995; when it was St. Benedict Catholic School. Now that the school is charter the A+ quality of education the school once had has declined and continues to decline. Wayne County and the State of Michigan have already given up on Highland Park and its failing school system. Why not get someone with the proper credentials experience and know-how to go into North Point Academy to overturn what is now disorderly unorganized and displeasing to the eye. If I were to rate this school on a scale of 1 10 for the 2008-2009 academic year; the score would be zero.

    I am an student that attends this school. I've been here since it was an catholic school. My opinion is that is was much better as a catholic school. I have seen teachers and principals come and go. The school is very unorganized. The current principal we have now doesn't know how to control the children most teachers don't know how to control their classes. Our former principal knew how to at least keep the school together. Some teachers are focusing more on disciplining the children than educating them thats why the children don't get much work done. Teachers are busy breaking up fights stopping arguments before it turns into a fight and continues playing around. But the good things about the school is that they have great teachers and staff. I hope that the school tries to get better and more organized.

    The school was once upon a time a good school. However since being converted to a charter school i have seen many things change. The quality of education is in the basement. The students are out of control and the teachers lack the ability to control classrooms. There is no strong discipline action in place to make the students and parents accountable for the students behavior. The only thing the teacher and the evans group seem to be concerned about is paychecks and count day. Parent and pto need to make this shool system accountable because they are failing our children. On a scale of 1-10 i give the school a zero.
