    This school needs to be revamped from the top down. Adminstration and staff need to be coached on how to be sensitive to their students needs as well as how to resolve issues with parents. My children ended up at this school by default. Every attempt I made on trying to relocate them was blocked. Every situation was dismissed by administration because the teacher is "a good instructor". I am very unhappy with this school and am moving far away from this district before the start of the next school year.

    My son attended this school from Kindergarten to 4th grade. We are currently relocating to another state. I believe as long as you stay involved in your child's school you will get great returns. My son is an amazing reader and the teachers have always been hands on and communicate well. With that being said I am putting this review because I see I'd like to share to any parent that's looking at this school as a possibility. Average school pleasant staff- stay involved. Join PTA - attend as many school events as possible.

    Thank you Nathaniel Alexander Elem. for accepting my child for who she is. It is hard to find a wonderful set of staff that cares for the child and the parents. And her learning assignments are amazing especially when I see the results! Thank you!
