Posted April 14, 2014

The teachers we've dealt with have been amazing. My son is in his second year here and absolutely loves it. Have never had a problem arranging a meeting with the administration or teacher with any concerns or problems (which are rare). Parental involvement is high and welcomed (unlike other private schools we looked). Would highly recommend.

As a teacher I wouldn't recommend this school. Poor communication with parents. Principal quick to blame funding rather than helping my kid succeed. Teacher constantly complain that she was overworked with little help. And in the end my son suffers due to their lack of concern.

Nuner Primary Center !...Is the best school in South Bend, IN. My first child that I gave birth to went Nuner from Kindergarten all the way to 4th grade and he was sad that he had to leave, and now my other daughter Kiley Bogunia goes there and loves it so so much and she also has the best 3rd grade teacher ever her name is Mrs. Crawford and my son also had her in 3rd grade when he attended at Nuner. And also I'm going to be starting play ground duty next week at Nuner to be more involved with the school and so that my children see that and see that I love school and want to be involved in everything that my child learn's and learn's from myself and also to just be a great influence.

This is a great school! Parents are definitely involved and the kids are well-mannered. My daughter is only in kindegarden but is learning to read and write and her teachers are genuinly concerned for her education and well-being. They encourage parents to come in and sit in on classes whenever (usually a day's notice is polite but not required).

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
