    "Love this school...kids enjoy learning here and get motivations towards their goals. That's all we care as parents. In my opinion, if parents want the school to improve and have concerns. They should go directly to the principle and express their concerns with suggestions. By writing all the negative comments vaguely with the parties involved will never help in any situation."

    "We were in this school with the old principal and this year is my last year with the new principal. I applaused the changes to improve the school overall the new principal has put in. However, the young, new and inexperienced teachers we had last year and the year before (especially the lower grades) should be evaluated and retrained. Many of the parents I know who had kids in those grades felt some of the teachers played favoritism to students and over showering gifts to the teachers also is a big part parents experienced in this school. Not only I agree with them, I also felt the same experince especially with the couple young teachers in upper grades. These two were teaching the same grade level and barely had much classroom experience to teach our kids at this level. I believe they need to go through more teaching training, stop playing the games of favoritism and definitely quit being the apple-polishers to the principal. My thumbs up to the fifth, sixth grade veteran teachers who have been with the school all these years. They have and had been remained professionalism throughout their career all the years we were there and I am sure for the years to come too."

    "Excellent School! Excellent Staff! It is very sad to see the below reviews regarding Northwood Elementary because it sounds like these families did not find a way to be involved. I am not one of the "groupies" nor have I given gifts to the school other than the gift of my time but I have always been impressed with how inclusive the activities have been and how easy it is to get involved with what interests me. The PTA plans multiple fun activities throughout the year such as World Fair celebrating all of the different cultures, the end of year Carnival for everyone, the Back to School BBQ which is free to all of the families, the talent show where our kids can strut their stuff, etc. As with any school, there are teachers that fit better with my child's personality than others but we have had nothing but great experiences in all of the classes. We only have a couple more years before our youngest will graduate and we will certainly miss Northwood Elementary!"

    "This was my childrens' first year at Northwood, as we moved to Irvine from Florida last year. It has truly been such a wonderful experience. Both of our kids' teachers were outstanding. There were plenty of volunteer opportunities and I have to disagree with the previous reviewer about the school not having fun family activities. While I can't speak to prior years, this year there have been several family nights out. We have attended most of the events and they've been really great. There have also been a number of family lunches during the school day. From our perspective, we are absolutely confident that our kids have received a fantastic education at Northwood this year. From the dedicated teachers to the school administration, we are very pleased with the care, attention and education our children have been receiving."
