I went to Ron Nunn when it first opened, and my children go there now. I love this school. It is a wonderful, warm inviting campus. The parents and staff are dedicated to making this school a great place to learn, and placing a high emphasis on academic success and fun in learning. Ron Nunn has many opportunities for students to go above and beyond grade level, and to learn things beyond what the district and state curriculum provides. The children really enjoy the free family fun nights! Also, there are so many great teachers, I love Mrs. Spears and Mrs. Ford, and the principal, Mrs. Hernandez takes the time to get to know each of the students and their families.
I have 3 children who currently attend Ron Nunn and another who will be starting this upcoming school year. I can honestly say that Ron Nunn has met and even surpassed each of their needs. The curriculum is challenging but the teachers are very knowledgeable & patient.They are willing to take the time to give any extra assistance when needed. The new Principal is doing a great job. Whenever I am at the school I see her interacting with the children.Lastly, I would like to say the resource staff has been instrumental in allowing my child to reach his full potential. The best word to describe the resource staff is "Adaptable" the staff is able to adapt to each child to ensure they feel relevant. They help them to learn without making them conform. Parent's w/children w/ special needs (gifted or challenged) will understand the last statement.
I've been involved with Ron Nunn School for the past 8 years, and I am constantly amazed by the level of committment the teachers at this school have. When I come back to school for sports activities in the evenings and on weekends, I ALWAYS see their cars still in the parking lot, long after their day 'ends' at 3:30. The majority of teachers show up for all extra curricular events, like the back to school BBQ, Winterfest, and evening performances. At a time when money is non-existant for any extra programs, Our school still finds a way to Keep our Accelerated Reading program going, get our kids to computers every other week, and is working on ways to support struggling as well as advanced students. We LOVE Ron Nunn School!
Since Ron Nunn changed Principals and hired Scott Vernoy we've seen our school approve by leaps and bounds. The language arts program put in place has made my kids reading comprehension and test scores greatly improve. We are lucky to have a school with hard working teachers, a caring friendly staff and parents that stay involved. My only wsh is that more parents get involved with new and fresh ideas. The Principal is a constant face on campus, getting to know the kids and parents. He is always raising the bar academically so our kids will thrive.
My daughters have attended Ron Nunn School for the last six years. We absolutely love being a part of Ron Nunn School. Our principal is amazing in his efforts to know each child, to address any issue that arises and to better our school. The parents' club focuses on raising funds for our students education, field trips and any needs they may have and every parent is encouraged and asked to be a part of this team. Each year we have a new parents club president with fresh ideas and amazing involvement. I feel very fortunate to be a parent at this school. My daughters have had amazing teachers and I can't say enough wonderful words about our principal and office staff.
I have live around the nation and this is one of the most cliquish schools we have attended to date. The princple is unresponsive and is nothing more than an overgrown kid. The office is rude and has the attitude of why are you bothering us.
My son had Mrs. Prevost for kindergarten.do what you can to get her! She is the most caring,nurturing teacher I have ever seen.She goes above and beyond.We are very happy. He is now in first grade and really loves his school.He has a lot of school spirit and loves going to school. He is more advanced than many kids and I'm not sure what his first grade teacher will do but in kindergarted they did give him more advanced work to challenge him and I appreciated that and so did he. Very clean school with good parental involvement. We are really happy with this school overall.
Poor leadership. Principal will be changing 5/05. Parents are very involved. Demographics will be changing 8/05 due to new schools opening. Overcrowding is not an issue! Safe location, limited activities and clubs.
