Not a good school if your child has any learning disabilities or special needs. The special education program is terrible. The teachers also did not look into the children's previous testing or files which resulted in some set back and emotional damage.

Great school and wonderful teachers! I have seen amazing improvement in my son's reading, writing and math skills.

Susan Dubois is one of the best principals in the district. She knows every student by first name, knows their siblings, parents, etc. We haven't always seen eye-to-eye, but I know she loves her students, and the entire atmosphere of the building is very positive and nurturing. I have a child with autism and the services provided at Nab are absolutely fantastic. Even without a 1:1 on the IEP, the students' days were scheduled to ensure that they invariably had that level of support.

Best elementary school in Westford. Dedicated staff and great curriculum. Students are taught respect, inclusion, and care for their environment. The principal is the best in the entire town, super woman. She knows every single kid by sight and knows how they are doing. very responsive to questions, comments and concerns. Teachers also read and respond to emails from busy parents.

The principal is about the best you can get. I have children in both 1st and 2nd grade and they love it there. Both of them love to read and look forward to their math great is that!

Both my special needs children have graduated from Nabnasset school, one as recently as this June. I found the academic, special needs services and staff exceptional. The Administration was willing and responsive to meet my sons academic/social/physical needs. I have seen great growth in my children under the nuturing care of a highly competent staff.

I found the environment too relaxed and informal. Teachers sat in rocking chairs while the children sat on the floor during instruction time and no chalkboards were used. The stations format is very disruptive and a waste of time. The constructivist math program is very weak and does not teach the fundamentals. I think the school is overrated.

WE have had our child at Nabnasset for KG and 1st grade this year; it has been good and I am very impressed with her teacher in the multiage group; It is not as aggressive or drill-oriented as some schools in the famous Howard county, MD are but very competent and very nice environment.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
