My daughter loves this school. We couldn't be happier with her progress this year. She is in K and is reading and writing.
For Kindergarten and first grades the classwork has been well organized. From the art class, I have only seen one piece of artwork from a day of class in nearly two years of our child attending. Jane's Place programs for sometimes free but mostly paid after school classes are fantastic for working parents. Also, a Happy Start program is helpful to working parents. I think the school would benefit greatly from something as simple as having kids practice and become proficient with doing basic and fast math calculations using worksheets and basic reading and writing exercises. The school does provide more abstract thinking but some more focus on the basics at school and for homework would be in order to improve academic skills.
Classes are taught with a view toward the world and how to contribute to it in the form of good citizenry and stewardship.
I've worked at Nettelhorst and other schools before and feel that Nettelhorst provides a great environment for students to learn with friendly, educated and skilled teacher and staff members.
We are fortunate to be able to be a part of the Nettelhorst community and proud of how well the school is doing
I am thrilled that they have teachers who benefit from the great programs offered through Buundless Readers - our kids have made reading and learning a way of life thanks to these well trained teachers
Nettlehorst is very respectful to persons of all walks-of-life. Every child's success is important.
Nettelhorst is a wonderful school with great parent involvement, great teachers and staff. I'm so happy my grandchildren have the chance to attend a school like this.
The teachers are superb at Nettelhorst and the parents are very involved and concerned. It is a wonderful place. We are fortunate to be a part of it.
Nettelhorst is just a great school with wonderful parent, teachers and administrators. It is a public school that runs like a private school!
The teachers are so caring and the children are given so much attention and leave feeling productive after attendance.
It is a vibrant school with colorful murals on the walls, an active parent population, and an emphasis on the arts with music, art, and dance classes (but also an emphasis on math and science) and Jane's place classes being taught by local drama, art and music schools and teachers after school ranging from drama, clay art classes, mad science, and fairy tale ballet.
Nettelhorst Elementary School is a terrific school with terrific teachers!
My kids have been going there for the past five years and loving it.
Dedicated teachers and strong commitment to exceptional education for all the children
We are part of a progressive, safe, and supportive community at Nettelhorst.
Supportive parents, great kids, amazing teachers and a fantastic atmosphere for learning
