Teachers do not care about students being successful. They are not willing to change.

Nell Dawson Elementary School 5

I have had 3 children go through this school and have had wonderful experiences each time. This school is only for 2nd & 3rd grade. The academics are great and the teachers are wonderful. The principal is a wonderful leader, works well with all the staff and very caring towards the children. There are no sports offered due to the age group of the students, but they have a music teacher who goes to each classroom and they learn a lot of wonderful songs and give performances for the parents a few times each year. Each grade goes on one big field trip out of town each year (usually to a zoo or museum), and many walking field trips around town throughout the year. There is not enough parent involvement in most classes, and the PTO needs a lot more people involved in order to be able to do more.
