We are a
community-oriented public school that prides itself in being
collaborative and progressive. The purpose of the school is to create an
environment where students, while developing a strong sense of
individuality and respect for others, will prepare to meet the
challenges of the 21st century.
We believe that quality
education is a fundamental right of all children and that education and
social development of each and every Nelson student is a shared
responsibility. We believe in a safe and nurturing school environment
where everyone is treated as a worthwhile individual, where intellectual
growth in a cooperative setting is encouraged and where independent
thinking is fostered.
Nelson Elementary School
is a place where there is strong emphasis on the basic skills, where
there is excitement about learning, where there are high and clear
expectations of performance, and where each student is challenged to
reach their potential.
