Northport Elementary is a K-5 school that is known for its respectful, nurturing and challenging environment. Teachers, staff and families have high expectations for students in terms of academic achievement and behavior.
At Northport we cultivate a positive learning environment that is centered on high expectations. One of the strategies that we use is the power of positive influence. Each Monday morning our third through fifth grade boys attend Power Monday , where different members from our community come and speak to students sharing their own personal story while touching on a variety of topics such as responsibility, making good choices, personal goals, high expectations, resilience, and achieving personal success.
Northport believes that education is a partnership that exists between students, parents and school. We are committed to being a culturally responsive school and meeting the needs of our school community. As a result, we have monthly Parents as our Partners meetings that works to cultivate a strong home and school partnership.
Every year, Northport hosts Kids College. It is a full day where students get to self-select courses they are interested in. Classes are taught in collaboration with our community partnerships and volunteers and are designed to be highly engaging and hands on.
We believe in empowering our students with 21st century skills. Therefore we have a commitment to infusing our science curriculum with STEM for grades three through five. Our classroom teachers co-teach with a certified STEM teacher using inquiry based project learning, real world video connections, performance tasks and literacy tasks.
