    "We could not be happier with our school! We love the sense of community at NHE. The principal, teachers, and support staff are top-notch, and they truly care for all of their students. Their method of teaching includes differentiated instruction which maximizes learning and growth for all students. Our daughter is getting an awesome, well-rounded education, and she's close to home!"

    "A neighborhood is a group of people who live alongside each other. It is a choice for residents to become a community, allowing connections to develop. Our neighborhood has chosen to come together with Northwood Hills Elementary in the center. Here, the sense of community and family participation is unique and cannot be underestimated. Living in a small neighborhood, with a small school setting, is something very special. Northwood Hills Elementary has a history of state and federal accolades and high achievement awards, a dedicated principal, highly professional, experienced and qualified staff, and a very strong parent participation and PTA involvement. All of this contributes to the success of Northwood Hills Elementary. Our family chose to live in Northwood Hills because of the strong sense of community and the excellent educational opportunities provided. We are delighted with our community s school and I hope you ll give it a good look, too. Northwood Hills Elementary is not only an amazing place to grow and learn, but also a community within our neighborhood that allows our kids to grow up alongside each other."

    "We are not homeowners in this neighborhood, however we did look very hard at the school when we were looking for a house to rent and have stayed in this neighborhood mostly because of the wonderful school. When we do decide to buy a house we are looking very closely in this neighborhood! When we started looking for homes I had a good friend that grew up in NWH and she suggested we look into it. It is such a wonderful community and school! We love how small, well kept, diverse, and friendly the school is. On the first day of school Principle Griffin and Ms. Ellis are right there to greet you and make you feel very comfortable leaving your child. Still almost half way through the year they are out there everyday greeting the children. Also on the first day I was surprised how many teachers and administrators had already learned my son's name. Now that he is almost half way through the year I am impressed by the individualism that the children receive. Also the communication with his teacher is excellent - she always emails me back quickly and addresses all my questions. This school, administrators, and the teachers have really impressed me and I wouldn't send him anywhere else!"

    "Northwood Hills Elem is a small, friendly, neighborhood school with an energetic principal, excellent teaching staff, and an involved PTA. The school uses "differentiated education", meaning that teachers develop customized lessons in math and reading to allow more advanced students to move ahead and students who need a little extra help to get extra support. Within the first 2 weeks of starting Kindergarten my son had been assessed and we saw the differentiated instruction being incorporated into special activities. Love it. This school is also the only one in the district to have the "Think Tank", a special learning lab for Math and Science where kids really get to experiment on their own, apart from graded assignments. The Think Tank and its teacher are funded by the PTA. There's also a fun "Future Falcons" group for preschoolers and their families, which hosts playdates and socials for neighborhood kids and parents."
