    If we weren't moving out of state I would love to have all my girls attend Nokesville Elementary. I can't explain how sad I am to leave this awesome school because I don't know if I will ever find a gem like this anywhere. From the principal down to the students each person genuinely loves being there and assists one another instead of leaving them behind or in the dark. Even though they are expanding to include 8th grade it still has a small school feel where every teacher student and parent knows each other. In fact I'm glad they made the K-8 so we can maintain the children's innocence in Nokesville instead of sending them to the problematic Bristow Middle School. If you have an opportunity to pick this school I highly recommend it! You will be very happy you did.

    I am astonished that this school only has a great school rating of 6! What is that based on?! The test scores at NES are awesome. The administration from Mr. McDaniel down through the staff and teachers are awesome. Small school feel. Everyone knows each other. Very safe! My sons started here in the 3rd and 5th grades and agree this is the best school they have ever been to and unfortunately they have been to several public and private.. They love the small community atmosphere! That rating school be higher. Parents..look at the parents 5 star rating! That should mean the most to you! ) NES is great!

    This school starts with the top The Principal Mr McDaniel he goes out of his way to be involved and support each student and teacher. Mr. McDaniel is always positive or makes it positive. The community support and parents that volunteer is like no other. My child has attended 2 other schools before this one and Nokesville doesn't even compair to the others. It's that great. My child comes home happy everyday and feels like he is important and has learned far more.

    I love this school! It is small has a ton of community support parents are very involved in volunteering the teachers are fantastic! The best part of the school is the principal Bruce McDaniel! He knows every child by name is extremely accessible and dedicated to the success of each student. We moved from the Montclair area so my boys could go to this school. We LOVE it!

    My daughter started here in kindergarten and is now in fifth grade. I could not have asked for a better school! The presentation of the curriculum is excellent with a lot of on-hands learning involved and the teachers are exceptionally dedicated compassionate and caring even if your child is not one of their students! The principal Dr. Ralston knows each child personally and the children are his joy in life.
