    The school culture has improved tremendously with the hiring of Dr. Susan Lloyd as Principal in 2011. Dr. Lloyd's dedication to making NCES a real community by leading school events and spearheading fundraising initiatives sets her apart from others. Anti-Bullying has been a top concern the past couple years and the awareness at school is apparent. You can tell that she really cares about the kids. I am glad as a parent that my children go to NCES.

    North Coventry Elementary school has a staff of caring teachers paraprofessionals and office workers. My children have greatly benefited from their experiences there. Our children were received reading instruction at their level and pushed to improve. They excelled in math and are able to use their skills outside the classroom.

    An amazing school with a plethora of educational resources and activities for wholistic growth of the mind and body. The children learn from highly qualified teachers and the building is molded and lead by a top notch administrator. To work and live within north coventry is a blessing!

    My son started at North Coventry 2 years ago. He joined there in December and hated his previous school. When he started at North Coventry he did a complete 180 and loved his teacher. I am proud to say he goes to this school and the teachers and all employees are awesome!!

    I am very pleased with the education my daughter is receiving and cannot wait to see the fun and learning that happens for my son as he begins kindergarten this year. I have to disagree with some other reviews (and perhaps practices may have changed) but my daughter is working above grade level and has received more support and enrichment than I would have expected. The teachers are highly qualified and happy and the principal is organized and no-nonsense while still being warm. We are very pleased.

    Our school is an amazing place of learning understanding & enrichment! The entire staff & parent group work extra hard to ensure that each child & family is taken care of shown respect & given every opportunity for learning. We feel so fortunate to be part of this wonderful community!

    NC continues its decline due to poor leadership at the school and district. My taxes go up and my kid still can't read.

    I too have worked at the school for a long time. This past year was one of the best since Dr. Flicker retired. There were high standards for both students and staff. I once again am proud to say that I teach at North Coventry.

    North Coventry Elem. has undergone a rough couple of years. HOWEVER as of the Fall of 2011 the naming of a local extremely devout top notch educator and native NC principal has brought positive change to the school. Being born and educated at NC and OJR we are now moving in the right direction. Community involvement is HUGE at NC. It's part of everyday life-- foster and maintain positive experiences with the students families and residents of NC township. While the focus of OJR (prev. school board derailed progress) we are now back on track to forge ahead! Teaching to test is frustrating but at NC standards set by the new principal are extremely high and will be met. Staff and students are challenged to do their very best and go higher! NC elem school is a caring nurturing environment and is focused along with the PTA to instilling passion and drive for both academics and the community in which it's based. We' loved the local parish school but are fortunate to have such an amazing school in our own township. It takes a village to raise a child so parental involvement is also a key to success. We're to have Dr. Susan Lloyd and staff leading us into the next chapter.

    I agree with the last reviewer. The school is a perfect place for those who underperform but for the overachievers there is little if any guidance. The "gifted" program consists of a one-on-one meeting for 30min once a week and your child needs to be near genius to participate. Is that the same time that is spent with those who underachieve? I think not!

    Before I moved to Pottstown and researched this school North Coventry had a rating of 9. I see why they are a 5 now. All three of my children have attended North Coventry elementary and I feel that they can do more academically for the children. I feel that they don't challenge the children enough to learn. My oldest has since left the school and I now have a 4th grader and a kindergartner in the school. I feel like the school only does just enough to get by. I am also disappointed that they are working on there third principal within a year and a half.

    My boys transfered here from Caley in Upper Merion. So far my 2nd grader hasn't been challenged at all. And my 3rd grader is at level. (he was needing extra help anyway) But as for challenging and expanding my childrens minds I feel they are lacking. Would like to see them challenge the kids more and expect more out of them. Kids are smart and they could benefit from being challenged.

    This was my daughter's first year here. Having transferred in from a private school I was pleasantly suprised with how well run the school was. The teachers were available and the guidance counselor was incredible. My only negative comment was there was not as much feed back regarding my daughters progress. She is a good student so I think a lot more emphasis is placed on students who maybe struggling. Overall it is a great place to send your children.

    The facilities and teachers are nice but that's it. Send your kids to Wyndcroft in Pottstown where they will learn much more and learn to love learning and be challenged and nurtured. Too many kids enter NCE not knowing how to read or write and if your kid knows that already they will be bored for years until they can be divided into groups based on ability or until your kid loses interest in school and ends up falling behind into the growing mainstream. The teachers are can only work with what they have as far the the students who require all their attention to bring up to speed. It's a good school if your kid has special needs though not gifted but is behind. They will really work with them. A lot of the resources go towards those kids. It's better than other public schools in the local area though.

    I have been disappointed by the lack of support for gifted and advanced education in kindergarten.

    This school has a good Autistic Support Classroom with dedicated teachers and other support staff.

    This is a great school. The principal is dynamite. The counselors are great. Art Music and other activities are readily available. The lunch menu is something that the children can live with.
