My children had thrived at North Shore the past three years. The school has been improving year after year with tremendous parental support and incredible teachers!
My experience at this school is mixed. I witnessed great time, good time, and bad time. At this moment the school is a C school with a lot of emphasis placed on after school programs to please FNSE that do not provide any added value to the school's performance. If anything, these programs provided a second stream of income for the teachers and members of the staff that compromise the teacher's integrity and made them loyal to few wealthy parents. The school is set to remain a C school and the achievement gap for non-white and low-income students will rise significantly. A public school should not be allowed to have an outside lobby of powerful parents controlling the school.
From everything I read and hear, this is a great neighborhood school that’s only going up in quality, with a huge surge in community involvement over the past 2 years - neighborhood fundraisers, uniforms, recess everyday and recess toys, sponsoring classrooms, variety of after school enrichment and care options, school edible garden, etc. Check out the Facebook group Friends of North Shore to see all the awesome things happening, and they have a bunch of FAQs on there too. The school improved their state grade by a full letter-grade last year, and I’ll bet they continue improving.I’ve also read that 12% of the schools population qualifies for autism services (and that the school has one of the best programs around for kids with autism), which can and does impact the schools testing grades.From other parents and teacher-friends, I’ve heard that the principal is great, and most of teachers are great (with a couple not-so-great teachers in an upper grade level).
Dawson Cooper fails at every school she works at. She lets kids who cuss, fight and disrespect teachers get away with it. She does nothing, and shoild be ashamed. No wonder this school has low ratings and test schools.
