I am shocked by the amount of incidents of verbal and physical bullying at the Elementary and the JR-SR High Schools. The Elementary Guidance Counselor does everything she can to NOT address the issues. Situations are swept under the rug or the victims are blamed so that the school does not HAVE to abide by the state mandates re. bullying. Academics are not managed by the mainly ABSENT principal. The teachers lessons are all over the place and no one is on the same page. The Calibre of the school has absolutely lost is FORMERLY great reputation because of the administration.... the teachers will tell you the same. Most of the graduates with the exception of a very few go on to attend OPEN-ADMISSION colleges or low level state colleges or community 2 year programs. LOOK ELSEWHERE

Our son attended NEMS for two months before we moved to eastern PA. He was in kindergarten. We prefer the half day program as opposed to the full day in most of the neighboring districts. The principal and teaching staff are very accessible and friendly. It is a great atmosphere and very welcoming. Our move to another district took us to a full day program and 40 minute ride on a full bus. His teacher is very formal and not as accessible. The curriculum for a kindergartener is comparable but more comfortable direction at Neshannock. Thanks Neshannock for a short positive experience for our young son!
My Eldest Daughter attended and has gone on to graduate from the University of Pitt with High Honors and has secured employment immediately upon graduation. My 6 year old is going through the Elementary School at present and I have found absoloutely NO negative factors with regard to the cirriculum or staff. I reccommend It Very Highly. Being a Real Estate Professional I get more requests for this school district than any other in Lawrece County.
Very strong academics..Good people skills..Overall love the school for my children
