    "I have had children attend North Elementary continually since 2009. There have been exceptional teachers and a couple that did not cut it. I believe Mrs. Hornberg, the Principal, has a good grasp of what is going on in the classrooms, which leads me to believe she has good communication with the teachers. I have been involved in various aspects of parent volunteering (and there are many opportunities to get involved), and have never seen anything I didn't like. My children do not have behavioral issues or learning difficulties, so I can't say how those situations are handled other than some experiences we had with "bullying". Although, I tend to disagree with some of the discipline practices, my concerns were addressed and eventually rectified. I believe, as a whole, North is an excellent school for learning and nurturing. They offer many extra curricular events and programs. The staff really gets to know all of the children and at least recognize the parents. Mrs. Hornberg has always promptly addressed any questions or concerns I have brought to her attention."

    "This school is well below average and should not rate a 6, it would be a 4 at best. They have one of the worst music programs that my children have been involved with. The teachers terach to the lowest level to achieve their test standards. This school has a large problem with bulling not just at school but also cyber and their response has been and continues to be "it's a neighborhood issue". If you are planning on moving to the Crystal Lake area stay clear you will be heavily disappointed."

    "North is the best school in the area! The principal and staff are awesome! After having very negative experiences with Coventry, North was a welcome change for us. The teachers are all really caring and helpful and energetic. They provided my son with extra help in writing, math and reading. Although my son did really well in a small group setting, I liked that they seemed to also integrate him in the main classroom as much as possible, so he felt like he was a part of his class and wasn't missing out on things, which was one of my worries about him participating in a LD program. He is now in middle school where he is really outgoing and excels in a small group setting and as he is gaining confidence, is doing better in the large classroom too. Crystal Lake seems to be a nice place to live. I generally don't see kids (or parents) with the annoying 'over privileged' attitudes. My three kids have never had problems with bullying or harassment from anyone in any of the Crystal Lake schools or busses they've been in. The Crystal Lake school system and community seems to take these issues seriously and really provides a positive learning environment for the kids!"

    "This school is amazing. The teachers are very caring and always easy to get a hold of. My child has improved a lot over the last 2 years being here and would hate to leave if we had to."
