    I was a student and I know have a daughter attending North Highlands Elem. I think the school is excellent with safety. This school has been great with my daughter in showing ways to learn and keep interested. She has loved all her teachers and there has not been one complaint from me our my daughter about any of the activities that go on at this school. I have been very pleased.

    I currently have one child that attend here and another child in 7th grade that attende NHE. Both of my children are in the gifted programs and I owe it all to the loving and deicated staff. Mrs. Ware's decissions have been solely based on the health and safety of the children in her care. The teachers truly love their job and their students. I am truly happy at NHE.

    I have 2 children that attend North Highland Elementay a 5th grade and a 2nd grader. My 5th grader has never had any trouble She has always maintained all A's. My 2nd grader has had trouble in school since he started there. He has never gotten into trouble behaviorally it has been academically. His teachers and I have been in contact trying to come up with a plan to help him. I also would like to say that he is basically a year younger than most of the kids in his class. most are already 8 and he will not be until May. Recently we had him tested and found that there were sound reasons for his difficulties. Since then we have come up with multiple strategies to help him. He has already shown Great improvements in this short time. I am grateful for the wonderful teachers and staff.

    My daughter currently attends kindergarten at NHES and is doing great. In four months of going she can sound out any word she sees and read in sentences. Her teacher does excellent in making time for one on one learning with the kids and wants them to excell. The principal is very nice and understanding and knows what it means to run a school. We have a wonderful PTA that takes time to put together every event and volunteer for them. The school is very organized and full of teachers that care about your children not only as a student but as a person.

    I wish there were more of one on one with the students there. The school is small but we have had problems that we thought was worked thru but in the end were not corrected. This i'm not saying is all the school's fault but maybe if they put the homework on computer and let us know if the child isn't doing classwork it would help

    I have been with North Highlands since I was a child. My children go there now and are going in the 3rd grade. It has been a great experience not only with myself but for my children. The teachers and staff are really great.

    NHE has such great potential. Parent involvement is fantastic. PTA is for our kids and the teachers make it worth while. The atmosphere is calm and makes for a easier place to learn.
