    I would like to say that the staff at this school are wonderful caring people who are really there for the students. My boys have learning disabilities and they worked wonders with them from the principal to the nurse and teachers. We loved it here.

    I am a former IT contractor for Smyrna Schools District. I managed the technology in this building and others. I have first hand experience with staff members and district administration. I have never seen individuals more dedicated to children and education. There is a real investment in time and personal energy into the children of this school. North Elementary is managed by true caring professionals dedicated to your child s physical/mental health and education. Each child is given every opportunity to excel and find their niche whether it is in academics athletics art and or music. I have never experienced a finer educational environment. Keep up the great work and God Bless!
