Another parent of a child with extra needs chiming in. You always hear complaints about lack of parental involvement, but it seems at Nashville they only want to hear from the parent if it is an interaction to benefit them. If you are requesting assistance for your child, or more involvement to help your child excel (not just perform on a basic, satisfactory level) prepare yourself for a fight. I was discouraged for 2 years from requesting a special education evaluation for my child while a doctor, therapist and psychiatrist were all insisting extra assistance was needed. Outside of my own personal complaints about our experiences, I do like that the staff provides a "small community" feel. Many teachers know my child by name. Those who have attempted to help had been wonderful in their efforts. Unfortunately when it is your own child's education it is hard to separate the bad experiences from the whole of the good. In addition, I believe a well-rounded arts program is incredibly important and this school does not have much in the way of performing arts. We have since moved out of Nash county to be able to attend a school that meets our standards and needs.

This school is my neighborhood school and is suppose to be one of the better elementary schools in the district. However I have first-grader and I do not think the teachers are dedicated to teaching your child especially if they need extra help. That's outside of there job responsibilities. The teachers and staff are unprofessional and rude and tend to think they are doing a great job.

The school is great. Mrs. Conway and Mrs. Catolano do a great job with students, teachers and parents. They do great!

Not so great. I'm sure it's perfect if you have a perfectly healthy child. However, if you have children with special needs, at least emotional needs, look else where. My son has mental health issues. I have no option at this time to remove him from school and home school him. Which is a bad and good at the same time. It's sad giving up on the public school system.... however, it's good that I've finally put his education first.... which is almost always better from home.

This is the best school ever. I went there as a kid and although at the time I never thought that I would be interning there in high school. I get to see first hand how things work there and i think that it is wonderful and inspirational how they take care of situations. I truly feel that they are doing a good job there.

I graduated from this school in June 2006 from fifth grade. This is the best elementary school I have seen. The teachers are qualified with their teaching materials. There are many programs like art, music and p.e. As parent involvement it is a great advantage of helping students have fun and learn. The discipline is very stressful on students but is very well done.As to help prepare students for the E.O.G.shows of this school's high scores. As their safety on the school's campus it is a safe learning environment.

We have 2 daughters attending NES right now and our 5y.o. son will start kind. in the fall. We have had a very positive experience at their school. Our girls are in 1st and 2nd grade. They have had many opportunities to do hands-on assignments with everything from reporting in front of parent audience in Mrs. Deans' 1st grade class, while pretending to be certain animal or insect, to weaving and making apple pies in Mrs. Day's 2nd grade class. These teachers and many others I've had the chance to speak with at their school seem to have the best interest of their students at heart, and truly want to make learning fun. Our girls are always coming home and telling us something new or exciting they've done in their classes. The teaching assistants also seem to be helpful and excited to see the kids after a break.
