    Great school and the whole staff is just wonderful. My daughter really loves this school. I will absolutely recommend this school.

    Nash is an excellent school that set the standards high for the rest of the district. There are caring principle and teachers there and my children have learn and excelled because of the great staff at Nash.

    I love Nash because each one of the teachers takes the time to see each student as a person and discover their needs as a part of building the educational relationship. Then each student is taught in a way to meet their needs!

    Nash Elementary is an excellent school. The administration and teachers have a genuine passion for education and leadership

  • (7 years ago)

    The school learning wis is exceptional. Although the teachers there need to learn how to accept when they make a mistake and how to learn how to talk and approach the childern. I have struggled so much with this school over that. Not every child is the same and everyone needs to realize that at the school. Not the best counselour either.

    We have both past and present children that attend Nash Elementry (or have attended). Although we don't live in the district to my husband and I it is worth the extra miles we take each day. This year we have a new principle and an assistant who work well together. The staff is amazing they all care for our children as their own. They put their heart into everything they do. If you are looking for a close net school where the safety and well being of your child or children is top priority this is the school to be.
