They don't send child re n home with homework at all, which gives the parents nothing to work on to help their child learn more if they need to

This poor team of teachers and a weak principal will allow your child to fail and not care at all. They will not uplift your child to their highest potential.

Terrible school especially since they have changed principals she is very rude talks over you could care less about the students and parents she's all about politics which she is not favored in at all. Since principal Kelly left school has lost so much community support and funding. They lack in supporting children with special needs, teachers feel it's not their job to help a child learn "what they don't know". They will call DCF if they have the slightest concern without discussing things with parents or guardians first. I would not recommend this school at all bullying is a big issue her they just have poor morals judgement and care for children that will help them grow learn and succeed.

I am very happy with this school. My oldest son has attended for 3 years and my middle child is entering his 2nd year. I feel the administration is very willing to work with any concerns we've had as parents. We had a bullying issue and Principal Kelly put a stop to it right away. I think it is very important that parents not only communication with teachers/admin but also follow up with our children/teachers/admin to make sure that if there are issues, they are being resolved. So far so great at Nelson Place!

My daughter has PDD-NOS and transferred to this school from Gates Lane. At first I was nervous, because the program she was entering into was in its first year at Nelson Place. But I am pleased. My daughter's teachers really listened to our input when helping her to participate fully in the classroom. A good first year with, hopefully, more to come.

I went to Nelson Place School from Kindergarten until I graduated in 2004. I could not have asked for a better school. When I was there there was a bully there and would sit on my head on the bus and Mr. Kelly put a stop to it the next day. Mr. Kelly has no tolerance for bulling and if you brought it to his attention he would take care of it at ONCE. All you parents that say that school is bad you have not been there for SEVEN YEARS so you probably do not know much about the school. My teachers were excellent. I now attend St. Peter-Marian and almost everyday we talk about the fond memories of NPS.

I could not ask for a better school for my child to attend. The environment is great..small community, neighborhood feel. Our daughter is in K and she is accelerating at rates we are extremely happy with. Her teacher is top notch! I can't say enough about the school and its teachers.

The school provides no safety from bullying, a parent should feel that there children are safe,I dont feel that in this school.

We did not have much luck at this school. Our child was not getting the education she should have. On some days they would watch The Lion King, and color all day. There was almost no homework giving to the children, and some of the children had displayed bad behavior towards the others. We ended up going with school choice and left the Worcester system. We had two other parents from the same class call and inquire about how we changed schools. These two families also ended up leaving Nelson Place.

Our son transfered into Nelson Place in the 4th grade after attending Bancroft School. We had a wonderful experience with the school. He graduated and attended Forest Grove last year and was very prepared and successful in his first year of middle school. We loved the small community feeling and that the principal and staff new our son right away. Nelson Place is a terrfic school.

There is a serious bully problem at this school that is not dealt with. It appears that it's easier for the staff to turn a blind eye than get involved and change things.
