    I am a parent we moved to Northfield from Erving. My daughter loves this school. The teachers are great and the community involement is wonderful. Compared with Erving MA the school does require alot of parent involment which to me is fantastic not enough parents involed with thier childs education in alot of schools. However I wish the Town of Northfield would fund the school more for supplies for the teachers and students.
