    "My wife and I also once were proud to send our children to the school. We had no misgivings with the first two who attended the school but that was 3 years ago. We still stand behind the teaching staff but our concerns are with the schools administration. We had every intention of having our youngest continue at the school through 6th grade but before the start of this year, we had a change of heart and enrolled him in another school. We expressed our concerns to the director, via voice mails and emails, why we were making a switch but to this day have never received a return call. We have spoken to other parents of our doubts about the school and several agree with us....the teachers are some of the best around but the lack of support from administration have us doubting if the number 1 priority of the administration is the welfare and education of our children."

    "I used to be a huge cheerleader of this school. We loved it for 3 years. As long as you do not expect the administrators to return phone calls or e-mails about serious issues, then it might be OK. The board seems to have little direct control over the job performance of the 2 administrators. The teachers are dedicated and seem to run the school fine with little leadership. The curriculum is pretty good, too. However, there have been some serious leadership issues in the past 2-3 years and they make one seriously question the future of the school and whether or not the needs of all kids are considered when making important policy decisions. The school actively contracts out work that directly impacts student success and the resulting turnover and lack of quality in these areas is a concern. There is no school nurse or dedicated health aide."

    "I can tell by reading the reviews, that this would not be a school of choice for my children. Seriously! Learn how to spell! Also have friends with children there - they have many regrets."

    "Use this school as a last resort. If you want your children to regress, than send them to this school. The two stars is for the arts and crafts program. They at least do this well."

    "My oldest son went to North Shore and my youngest son is a 3rd grader there. The staff is highly qualified, motivated, adaptive and creative. In being a charter school, they are not handcuffed by a large administration so decisions can be made quickly. Being on 40 acres, the staff and kids have an excellent outdoor lab. They are very good at securing funding for all kinds of projects (greenhouse, cross country skis, snowshoes, hockey rink and warming shack, playground equipment, 3 new classrooms and computer room, etc.). Most of the staff are long term, although they do not get tenured, which in my opinion, allows the administration/school board to act quickly if a staff member is not doing their job (this has not been much of an issue since any openings that become available are very much in demand, due to the school's reputation)."
