    I along with my sister and brother went to Nixon way back in the day and now my daughter goes there. This School is very dedicated to the kids and families of Nixon and they always strive to bring the best out in each student. They offer fantastic educational tools and the staff is top notch. I am so glad my daughter spent all 5 of her Elementary years at Nixon. GO BOBCATS!

    My daughter has gone to this school since second grade. This is a good school they have teachers that work with you when your child needs extra work to stay busy. They are very friendly and my daughter loves going there.
