REVIEW NORTH POINT

Help other Boys thrive at school!

Your word of mouth is creating a huge buzz around the community. A large portion of the prospective families coming to see us at Open Houses, booking school tours and phoning us have heard about the school from our current families – THANK YOU. There are a couple more easy ways you can continue to help – they will take a few minutes of your time:

  1. Write a short review of something great about the school on GOOGLE REVIEW – HERE (click Write a Review on the right side of the page).
  2. Write a short review on our FACEBOOK page
  3. Send someone the link for info about our next OPEN HOUSE FEB. 27


2nd CALL – STUDENT AMBASSADORS

Love to talk about North Point?

This is a great leadership opportunity ! We are looking for a few STUDENT AMBASSADORS (all ages welcome) to share their love of the North Point program at the February 27 Open House. Students will greet potential families, lead school tours and interact with potential students/families. We will mix ages and have students in pairs for a higher level of comfort where required.
