Open Quote Northridge is a fantastic school that has high academic achievement, while also offering music, two PE classes, Art, two foreign languages, technology class, a maker space and library to every student from kindergarten to 6th grade. My kids love their teachers, their principal and their friends, and we feel valued as a family. They learn something new and exciting every day and have a balance of traditional academics and cutting-edge learning opportunities. Sadly, it looks like their scores dropped this year because many families chose not to take the state test, so their kids got zero scores. I know that my kids are still getting the best education available because I see what happens in the classrooms when I volunteer. We are so grateful to the staff at Northridge Elementary.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
