    No one knows anything or at least that's how the unprofessional office staff act. It would be nice to see that school ran by someone who truly cared about the students.

    My child has been as this school for 2 years now and I have not been impressed one bit. The office is very unorganized and never seems to know what is going on. There is no PTA anymore. The school has not passed the State tests in a few years now. It's so disappointing.

    I went to this school as a child kindergarten-6th grade. I say with great joy that I wouldn't have wanted to go to any other one in San bernardino. I remember so vividly the after school program that I stayed at most days throughout the week waiting for my parents the volunteers really brought a smile to my face. If you don't think the teachers do their job I'll be a witness that I graduated from cajon high school down the street this year 13th in my class of 595 (4.6 gpa). I doubt it would've ever happened if I didn't feel comfortable learning there as a kid. This may seem out of nowhere but I post this because I saw my old 6th grade teacher Mrs. Faz yesterday at the district office ( I was there receiving IB diploma) and she recognized me knew who I was even though I'd grown a lot and even remembered my name after not seeing me for 6 years! I almost wanted to cry after she left. I'll be attending UN on almost a full-ride come fall for academics. Teach your kids well and have faith in the teachers. They do their jobs well. -sincerely Brent smith cajon HS class of 2012. For parents who's kids are uninterested in class that's not the teachers fault make your kids care...

    NorthPark is a Joke the office staff are rude the administration does nothing to support the students and most of the teachers seem to be teaching only to fulfill state testing requirements. The word teaching is no longer applicable. They seem to just spoonfeed the children the information on the test in an effort to boost the schools rating so they can get more money in their pockets.

    the vice principal Mr. Appis has been the real reason there are all those fun activities at the school. He's been an uplifting spirit throughout the campus. He's always around getting to know parents participates in all activities and gets involved with classroom fun time. I am thankful that my daughters teachers have been the best and I attribute it to them & not administration that they have done so well. it was frustrating being a parent at this school but am thankful that I was able to get my children into a different school.

    So far I have been satisfied with the education my son is receiveing at this school. I hope to see more programs for advanced students in the near future.

    My two children attend North Park and I do not think the teachers and staff do enough to make sure the children and parents feel like they matter. North Park has went through some well needed administration changes. Teachers need to have more patience with some of their non interested kids and maybe have some new material available. They need to stop teaching to the test and get back to real teaching.

    My child has attended North Park for five years and she loves it! The teachers are outstanding. She really loves the new program for accelerated students. This year has been particularly exciting with a lot of community events happening. My whole family has attended all of the events this year. The cookie night and art and cheese night were so much fun! I really hope they do them again next year! The recent safety fair was also great. It is so good to see these types of positive community events where parents can be involved. I just wish they had an after school program. I hope the current administration keeps up the good work and continues to make North Park shine.

    My daughter came here from a private Christian school after we were let down by their system. She is doing very well making new friends and her teacher is considerate and helpful.

    Unfortunately I do not have a good review for the office staff at North Park. I have several issues to address to the principal Ms. Morales which will be addressed Friday May 30-th. The lack of communication in their office is disturbing and has changed my outlook upon the school overall. Sorry but my child will not be attending next fall.

    My daughter went to North Park from kindergarten through 6th. She was fotunate to have the district's best Principal (Mrs. K) the entire time. My son has attended since kindergarten and is now in 6th. He was not as fortunate as my daughter. The ____ district forced an administrative change. Now North park has the absolute worst Principal one could imagine. She has completely alienated the parent helpers who were such an important part of my children's academic life at North Park. Thank God we are able to leave the district this year so my kids will be able to attend a good school in a much better district

    Both of my children attend North Park. North Prak staff is always very friendly and helpful. North Park has a wonderful reading program that has been a great deal of help in other academic areas for my children. My children enjoy the students and staff as well. It has been a pleasure sending my children to North Park Elementary.

    My daughter has attended North Park since the 1st grade. She is now in the 6th grade. This is an excellent school.

  • (10 years ago)

    North Park in my opinion is a school that is helps acheive all students goals with kindness and caring on the part of the staff. The staff goes above and beyond the call of duty to reach each and every student. It has a warm and caring enviroment and the students ALWAYS come first.
