    "I was excited about my child going to high school. He has always been an A/B student in math but he like so many other students were failed by the school. The teachers were given a new math curriculum that they were not prepared to teach this year. Numerous students are failing math and the curriculum will change again for next year. I sincerely hope the school placed a request in their budget for a math workshop to make sure the teachers are prepared for the new math curriculum for this coming school year. My child has his heart set on becoming an engineer and math and science is very important in that field. Getting low grades in math is not an option that sets well with my child or myself. I'm hoping that this issue is addressed quickly and the teachers will have the confidence to work the math problems out on the board instead of just giving the students a worksheet and having them work the problems on their own then give them the answers out of the book. That's not teaching that's just getting by."

    "Let me begin by saying the principal of this school is a excellent example of what all principals should be. She is a person that truly, truly cares about a persons well being. I gave the school four out of five stars only because there ARE a few teachers who do not deserve to be called teachers. In math and physics my daughters had to teach themselves because the teachers belittled those who tried to ask questions and the physics teacher put on an instructional video of another teacher, and sat on his duff doing nothing during class! Overall it is an excellent school with a few teachers that are collecting pay just for showing up."

    "Northgate's motto is Commited to Student Success...there should be an addendum to that that says 'as long as they aren't a challenge to teach'. I do not like this school."
