    "My child has been attending attending Northwood since Kindergarten and now in the 6th grade. From my experience, there has always been great parent/teacher partnership. The principal is very attentive. It is true the upper grade teachers do not require the volunteers that the lower grades do, but I don't think it is because they are intentionally trying to distance themselves from parents. Overall, my child's experience throughout has been a very positive one."

    "I agree with the review from Aug 15,2011. Now 1 1/2 years later same story regarding excessive gift-giving parents and some overly involved parents that make it difficult for others to volunteer. Education system is good. My first child attended with the previous principal and now 2nd child with Dr.Payne. Big difference and better change. My only negative here is the parents volunteers has to be fair. By gift giving parents taking over the power and getting less chance for others to take part. If one parent is a room parent for once class for one child, give the chance to others for other classes instead of the same parent for both of his/her children classroom mom. I have been in the PTA before and last year and this year the main PTA members needs to be changed. We had great PTAs for last so many years."

    "I went to Northwood Elementary School from 1995-1997. The teachers are great and sincerely care about how well you perform. They develop relationships with parents and their students. I still keep in touch with them from time to time."

    "The faculty and staff are dedicated to making Northwood Elementary the best school. Dr. Payne's leadership is strong and he is very personable. Our children have had excellent teachers and there's a real sense of community here. It's nice to see so many parents volunteering their time. Northwood Elementary is an exceptional school and we are so fortunate that our children have had a tremendous learning experience."

    "Upper-grade teachers distance themselves from parents: either they don't ask for parent volunteers, or they're not using them (except to file papers). Principal suffers from "excessive analysis:" he can provide a case study for every student and situation, leaving you feel like your child is just a number. They do not put children first, and there is no child/teacher/parent partnership with the school. There is no learning community here. My older children attended other Irvine elementary schools and this one leaves me cold."
