    "We have a second grader this year at Hawthorn Elementary North. We are impressed by teachers' encouragement of parental involvement, their attention to details and organization, timely communication about various events and activities, and overall happiness of our child. The student body is very diverse, and it is a huge advantage for the children to be growing up and learning together with kids from many cultures. The energetic principal seems to be exerting an effective leadership over the school, and she has been very responsive when we initiated a communication. Teachers and staff are friendly and respectful. We have not been here long enough to evaluate all the details, and will update later in the year. But so far, great!"

    "Excellent teachers who take active role in helping support growth of students. We are very happy that our children go to Hawthorn Elementary. The school is moving in the right direction, and it is a terrific place for our children to learn."

    "I have two children at North. I am concerned with the Administration and lack of encouragement for parent involvment. The fact that we keep losing great Principals is a concern as well. This year, we are stuck with a principal who does not say the pledge every morning as in years past and does not let the teachers do what they need to do. My kids are exceeding all standards and I feel are getting a good education, but again, the administration is not up to par."

    "My child is in third grade at Hawthorn elementary north. I am very concerned about the poor rating although all three schools are supposed to be using the same curriculum. It is my personal view that this school gets step mother's treatment mainly due to the fact that majority of the students in Elementary North are Hispanic (Did I drop the bomb ?). Principals transfer every 6 months. This school continually rated low (4 compared to 8 in other schools in the district) and lot of bright students transfer to other schools. What is wrong here. I think administrators play blind eye to the real issue with this school. This is modern day segragation"

    "Currently, this school is doing much better. Leadership has changed, burnt out teachers have retired, and my kids are loving it. This may not be new but I find it great that parents are encouraged to get involved and be Mystery Readers and participate in programs like Art Adventure and Family Fun Night."
