    My child has been attending Nevitt since kinder and it has been the best experience for her. We have had no problems what so ever!! The teachers at Nevitt are amazing and truly care for their kids. I would absolutely reccommend Nevitt to anyone!

    I am very happy with this school. My 3 kids have been going here since kinder. I love all the staff especially the teachers and office staff. I have had no complains at all.

    I have a kindergarten student and first grader. Their teachers have been great! My only concerns were safety and lack of diversity. There were many bullies at that school and my daughter had a hard time making friends. She thought that if she learned spanish like the other kids that she would have more friends. Also parking is a problem. It was very difficult to pick up my kids after school.

    My three boys are now at Gilliland and only my daughter remains at Nevitt. I think Nevitt is a wonderful place for children to grow and learn. The teachers are hard working and dedicated to our children. The entire staff works together to insure that our children grow in everyway imaginable. They teach self respect and respect for others. My children developed a love for music and now each of my boys play the violen. The school nurse has become my friend and I have seen how she goes out of her way to help students and parents alike. I have always been welcomed on to the Nevitt campus and I have to tell you that I feel that my children could not have become the wonderful people they are now without the help of each and every staff member at Nevitt School.

    This school was a great asset to my daughter. I was involved 100% in every aspect of her education. They encouraged me to visit and help out in the classroom and the teachers seemed to give more then I would have expected. By being there before and after school sometime until six or six thirty to meet with me. I am very happy with our experience at Nevitt.

    I have 3 children who attends Nevitt my older two started in year 2000 since then we've have grown accustomed and comfortable. The staff is professional the teachers are wonderful. It was nice to finally see a little more African-Americans there but I still feel there should be more of a diverse environment. There has been improvements on the playground equipments as well so hopefully we'll see more positive changes being done.

    My son attends this school out of district. I've been very happy with this school. The special ed teachers/aides really care about the students and their future. The discipline (SPARK Program) is the best for children with emotional problems. I have nothing but positive things to say for the self-contained classroom. They have been able to teach my son where other schools have failed him (Roosevelt District).

    My daughter is a first grader attending this school. The school ability groups for reading and math. This assures that children are receiving instruction at the proper level of difficulty. I appreciate this because my daughter reads above grade level while many of the students read below grade level because they come from Spanish speaking homes. The instruction is excellent at this school. Scores have improved thanks to hard work from the teachers at the school. Many of the students are disadvantaged and school is the only constant in their lives. It is a credit to a school that can improve student performance in a disadvantaged population. Not only do the teachers group students but many offer after-school tutoring. Even though my child works above grade level she is challenged and encouraged to learn.
