    "The administrative staff is extremely rude at this school. My child was having a lot of issues in class and my concerns were ignored for days. I kept on having to write down my concerns in a piece of paper every day, call the school numerous times to get someone to assist me. Finally after several days of waiting I get a phone call to address the problem, not even a one on one conversation with the principle. Unless you are on the PTA your concerns will not matter to this administration. The politics at this school are disgusting. The principle will brush off the problem with a bunch of excuses. Never have dealt with a principle with such a high ego. The gifted program is a joke at this school. Just have your child tested independently and they will be considered gifted. Some of the teachers are continuously yelling at the young kids. The administration should ensure they correct such bad practice. It is their responsibility to ensure our children have a positive learning environment. They can start by coaching the office assistant to be friendly or replacing her. Unfortunately I am not able to be part of the PTA and my child's problem has been belittled."

    "I went to find out about the VPK program and both women were so rude, they didn't even looked at the me for about 15 mins. After that they asked me "what do you need" in a bad manner. Thanks god they didn't have space because i do not want my kid in such a bad environment. I think love, care is more important that good notes. Everything can be learn but a good time at school will always be in your heart. I am not the only mother that happened. Hope you can change for the good of kids."

    "I love North Beach Elelmentary. It has an amazing Principal (Dr. Alice Quarles). The staff is kind ,caring , and the teachers are amazing. We have the best PTA. The parent involovment is what makes this school what it is. We work together with the administration to help them with all that they need that is not provided by the budget because of government budget cuts in education. We also help children in need, our PTA organizes a go green clothes collection all year. We have a student recyling team . We are an IB school. All my kids have gone to this school and I am happy I still have 4 more years there as a parent and PTA member."

    "NBE is the absolute best!!! My son is going into 5th grade and I could not have dreamed of a better educational experience for him. We are the best of the best! Our teachers have been superb and our principal is strong and focused on making sure we meet all of our IB and personal goals as a community. We have an extremely active parents who work beautifully with our administration to create an optimal environment for our children to grow both academically and personally. We have tremendous parent volunteer support and our volunteer organizations such as PTA and Friends ensure that our children and teachers have all the resources they need for success. The NBE community is a community based on academic excellence and the core principles of kindness, ethics, and generosity. We are a proud NBE family and are grateful to have such a wonderful school helping us raise our son. Our superintendent of schools, Alberto Caravalho, who is fabulous and is a champion for our children, has consistently recognized our school, our principal and our PTA president for excellence. Here, at NBE, hard work and being a good person is indeed recognized and promoted!!! Thank you, NBE!!!"

    "My 5th grader has been in the school for 4 yrs and my 2nd grader just completed his 1st yr. Both are gifted, and came to NBE from a nearby Montessori. The teachers have been kind, loving professionals who are always respectful to their students. The art & music teachers are terrific: come to an end of semester show & see for yourself! The PTA is very active, providing 150+ new computers in the last year, and SmartBoards in every class! This IB World School is incubating a bilingual Spanish program. Afterschool options include a very economical program plus broad array of "enrichments" athletics, arts & other classes. Friends of NBE volunteer parent group provides additional funding for extra staff in classrooms, computer, writing & science labs. Students have access to IXL math, BrainPop, Accelerated Reader & other software to enhance learning. PTA helps "Kids in Need" with free uniforms, books, school supplies & more. 5th graders create permanent "legacy" art installations on campus. Academics encouraged thru Student of the Month, Reading Incentives, etc. Fun community-building events throughout the year: spaghetti dinner, walkathons, fun fair & more. Best on the beach!"
