My daughter attends the full day kindergarten program offered, and I am more than pleased with her particular teachers. Although, I cannot say the same for the school itself. They are highly unorganized and very unstructured as far as their drop off/pick up procedures as it changes with the weather or temp. There is hardly enough room to park your car and escort your child in, forget it if there is snow. Staff to student ratio seems appropriate, but I can only speak for K. Office staff and other teachers are not as warm as hoped for considering its elementary. Overall, I would NOT recommend the school or moving to this neighborhood, if you care about environment and education.

This is by far the best elementary school in Nashua. My grandfather told me when he went there it was the best time of his life. The teachers there are awesome!!! Everyone is just so friendly to be around.
