NHE...the Heart of Northwood Hills!
We're glad you're here! Our website is dedicated to enhancing communication and promoting what everyone loves about Northwood Hills Elementary School & PTA — exceptional teachers, involved parents, and the collaborative community. At Northwood Hills, parents and teachers work in partnership to create a nurturing environment where every student learns and grows to their full potential.
Quality, Personalized Education
Northwood Hills Elementary (NHE) is part of the nationally-honored Richardson Independent School District (RISD) and located in the desirable North Dallas Northwood Hills neighborhood. NHE provides a nurturing learning environment with exceptional teaching, small classes, and personal attention to each student. Our school is part of the RISD Differentiation Initiative in which teachers tailor instruction to meet individual student needs.
NHE offers a well-rounded approach to education that includes:
- Physical Education
- Advanced Academic Studies
- Learning Enrichment Programs
- Hands-On Experience in the Science/Math/Technology Lab & Teaching Garden
NHE students and faculty have received national, statewide, and district awards — and the kudos keep coming. See our Brag Sheet for a listing of our latest awards and accomplishments!
Community of Support
We're more than a group of involved parents and teachers...we are a community that cares deeply about the success and well-being of our children. Being part of our PTA connects parents & teachers and empowers them to impact and improve the educational experience for all students. The NHE PTA is highly active & supportive and was again honored in 2014 with the Platinum Award for volunteer involvement.
Our community really shines at working together toward common goals, from raising over $45,000 for school programs to wearing pink in support of a young daughter battling leukemia. Take a look around our site and read more about what makes the NHE community such a great place for your kids!
