    I enjoy working with the staff and administration at Nations Ford. Our math facilitator literacy facilitator and intervention team help teachers teach the best that they can. Teachers are very professional and caring towards students parents and each other.

    Our experience with Nations Ford Elementary has not been a pleasant one. My daughter attended in K-1st grade. The learning environment lacks creativity and the principal never returns phone calls. For the last two years I paid to be apart of the PTA and there were never any meetings (what happened to the money). The school is basically a big daycare center. The teachers and staff are not welcoming and lack personality. If a parent had a choice between Nations Ford and any other school please go with the other school.

    My daughter is only in Kindergarten and I love the school. The teachers are very caring and also discipline the children well. My daughter has learned so much this past year. These teachers really have patience!
