In Nelson, everyone - younger folk and older folk alike - has a
consciousness of belonging to the community. Nelson folk embrace Nelson
Elementary School and the school embraces the community. The school is
an integral part of Nelson life. Members of the Nelson Elementary School
community agree that developing the strengths and talents of all our
students is a priority. In-school and after-school programs and
activities employ the use of enjoyable and challenging learning
experiences that are constructed around students' interests, learning
styles, and preferred modes of expression.
