I am really impressed with the quality of the teachers. My daughter has gained so much , especially in her math skills. She loves walking to school each morning instead of having to be driven !

Nottingham Elem. This was our daughters first year at school. She had a blast, making new friends, and loved all her teachers. I did have a few issues at the beginning of the year, but they were addressed and handled. I can't wait to start the 2013-2014 school year.

I am a fith grader at Nottingham Elementary and I have been there for five years. The Teachers are wonderful! The Teachers are not afraid to get down to the kids level and just help them understand. I like Nottingham because unlike most schools the kids there like being at school. We got these new things called active boreds and their really high tech. I love the playground it has a field, basketball court, playground, kickball/baseball field, and many more things. If your looking for a school i would really recomend Nottingham. IT ROCKS!!!

Nottingham is an outstanding school. The principal and staff work well with parents and seem to find a way to reach each and every child. The students perform well year after year. My own children love the school and feel very safe and comfortable there. The parent involvement is quite good and the school events are aimed at reaching all segments of the school community. I would highly recommend Nottingham ELementary

Nottingham seems to be a lovely school. I am a Girl Scout leader and have several Daisies at this school. All of my girls love it and the school is very cooperative with scout functions. They also have an on-site afterschool care program.

Nottingham is a wonderful school. This is our 6th year at Nottingham, and I love the teachers! They are very warm and caring individuals, who take a genuine interest in the student's overall well-being and academic performance. I have had great support from the assistant principal and the school counselor, also. I attended art class when my son was in kindergarten and was totally hooked. Who ever heard of learning about Monet in elementary school? Added bonus this year, we have a beautifully renovated campus, with state of the art classrooms!

Nottingham is a great school with opportunity for children to learn in a safe, diversified environment. Two of my children have moved on to middle school with great success academically and socially. I have two remaining at Nottingham. They both have done well in school and have had positive experiences with their teachers. The music and health fitness programs have been exceptional with opportunities to learn musical instruments, performing in district choir events and district health fitness events.

Nottingham Elementary is an extremely diversified school with over 30 nationalities represented. The teacher staff is extremely talented and ensures that ALL children receive an education equally. Nottingham has recently been recognized as a Just for the Kids High-Performing School in the State of Texas because of the sustained high academic performance of our students in 2000, 2001, and 2002. I am thankful my children attend this elementary school because not only are they receiving a quality education they are highly exposed to cultural diversity that enables them to respect other's beliefs and differences at a very young age.
