They have many opportunities for students to get involved in leadership and community giving: recycling club, SCA, morning announcements, bus safeties, community service club. Also the staff models these characteristics: almost all staff are very positive and friendly.
It is a warm, supportive and fun environment where children feel comfortable being themselves. The teachers are very accessible to the parents and are high energy and very positive. Academics are excellent.
My son was struggling with reading before coming to Nuckols Farm and working with Connie Daniels. Because of this, his self-esteem was very low. He felt stupid and never wanted to go to school. He was a totally different child within a few weeks at Nuckols Farm. He was again the laughing, happy boy that I had known and was excited about learning. There is no way to thank Ms. Daniels and all of Nuckols Farm for changing our lives. It is such a warm, supportive and fun environment: which is what school really should be!l
Great school with great teachers giving individual attention to each kid, tailoring the learning activities considering each kids unique abilities and talent. My only complaint as the other reviewer is the school start time. it is now 10 more minutes earlier than what it used to be. School starts at 7:35 AM!! Very very early for elementary school kids.
General academics are quite strong and the teachers are generally dedicated. PTA is very active. The environment is inclusive for special education students; however, obtaining special education services that would be typical elsewhere is a losing battle here. Would not recommend this school or district for students with IEPs.
I cannot say enough positive things about Nuckols Farm Elementary School. The teachers and staff are wonderful, intelligent, caring and absolutely perfect. The special education program is top notch, particularly the Autism program and staff. They have an 'inclusive' environment, where children with special needs are in a regular classroom as much as possible. The school also boasts a very active PTA with exceptional parent participation. The school is always neat, clean and inviting. My family LOVES Nuckols Farm Elementary!
My daughter is a young kindergartener. She turned 5 in late August. As a result, she was behind most of her peers in phonics and letter recognition. I'm a working, single mom and sadly couldn't give her the extra attention she needed. Fortunately, NFE offers 'a second helping' from special teachers. My daughter has made great progress! Her classroom teacher is excellent, also. My only complaint is that school starts at 7:50 a.m.!!! That is way too early for the little kids. Let the self-sufficient kids start that early.
