I've had two children go thru N.Hampton Elm and one presently attending. I can say without hesitation this school does not have the children's education at heart. There were no problems with my first child, a classic learner and pleaser. My second child a sweet pleaser girl with ADD was a different issue. After a string of meetings and pleas for help with her reading, we were left with a big fat nothing! she is now a senior and has learned her own coping strategies, but still struggles. THANKS for NOTHING! Things have remarkably gotten worse with my son. He's currently being pushed thru even though his skills are well below his grade level. I had to beg for testing which resulted in nothing. His teachers have been for the most part completely devoid of any care or ability to do anything for him except repeat a worksheet till he "passes". I've never had a teacher's website be up to date ever! Heck half the time I have no idea what homework he has! The administration is equally as disconnected and unobliging. In a nutshell this school is terrible.

Frankly I am surprised at the positive reviews this school has. In my experience, the administration and staff have been unfriendly and disinterested in interacting with parents. While my children generally like their teachers, I feel we are just a number at this school. There is little opportunity to volunteer in the classroom, and I don't feel much community at the school at all. There are so many strange and arbitrary rules. There are only two PTO meeting per year and really not much opportunity for involvement or support for new ideas. Overall, a disappointment.

I totally disagree with the negative comments about the administration of the school. I have taught at other schools and returned to Northampton because of the strong instructional leadership and caring attitudes of the school administrators. The staff and students love our principals!

Super teachers and an excellent PFO makes this one of this better schools in the area. I must agree that the leadership in the admin. side of the school is weak and lacking.

They say you can tell alot about a school by the looks on people's faces....well, at Northampton the students and staff overall seem very happy. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. Students hug the teachers and principals, so it's obvioius they are comfortable in this school. The instruction is very good and teachers keep in good contact with parents. One complaint....the traffic is horrible....sure wish the county would help the school by building a center turning lane out front!

The PFO at Northampton is outstanding coming up with innovative fundraisers to benefit the teachers and students. Quality of teaching is excellent. Although leadership at the principle level [seems] dogmatic in thinking teachers overcome this with their caring and professionalism.

This is an excellent school with dedicated, caring teachers and administrators! Children are at the center of everything that happens at the school. Parents are welcomed warmly and always treated with respect. I love this school!

The teachers at Northampton are very good and care about the students. The area of concern is that the administration ties the hands of the teachers.

This is an excellent school that offers parental involvement and a fantastic education to all! I enjoyed the 2 years (3rd & 4th) grade that we were able to spend at this school. The staff were always happy and pleasant - a good sign that the principal is doing something right! The kids were always happy and my daughter had the best teachers both years! Unlike previous schools in the area! I definitely recommend this school to anyone looking!

My children have loved attending Northampton Elementary! I love the fact that this school is withing walking distance to the Northampton neighborhood, and is also right next to Hildebrandt Intermediate School and Klein Oak High School. Klein Oak just became an IB school this year, and is the only IB school other than Bellaire and Lamar, that are both located in Houston. We have loved the teachers and the teaching at Northampton, and would highly recommend it and the other schools mentioned. I would like to see the Y after school program at this school however. The daycares in this area are either non-existent or not worth mentioning. Working moms are forced to find babysitting services within their neighborhoods. We have two excellent Y's in the area now, Shadowbend and the brand new Branch Crossing. What will it take to get this program at our schools?
