It's fun to go to school everyday. The teachers are the best people I've ever met. They are inspirational, patient, caring, fun, and relate-able. They are young, eccentric teachers whom I'm never afraid to ask a question towards. All of the kids were so great when I came here this year, halfway through the year. I love that you are so well rounded and they make an effort to enrich your classroom experience. Most of the kids participate in after school activities. Even the classrooms are new and some even have spinning chairs.:)
Nardin Elementary is a fine school that benefits from being located in a city with a limited selection of elementary school environments that parents feel comfortable with. The overall environment is very positive with a strong focus on the best parts of Roman Catholic theology without being preachy. To a large extent, the success of the school is directly related to the attitudes and expecations of the parents, who see their children as going on to graduate or professional schools after college. These expectations mean that parents share an interest in seeing that their kids are well grounded from an academic perspective. The challenge for Nardin will be the ability to create an endowment to support teacher salaries and limit tuition increases. The population of people in a community like Buffalo able to afford tuition that is beginning to approach 10,000 a year is limited.
