Mission Statement

The mission of the Nelson School is to instill strength of spirit and ignite a love of learning!

We are a community-oriented public school that prides itself in being collaborative and progressive. The purpose of the school is to create an environment where students, while developing a strong sense of individuality and respect for others, will prepare to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

We believe that quality education is a fundamental right of all children and that education and social development of each and every Nelson student is a shared responsibility. We believe in a safe and nurturing school environment where everyone is treated as a worthwhile individual, where intellectual growth in a cooperative setting is encouraged and where independent thinking is fostered.

Nelson Elementary School is a place where there is strong emphasis on the basic skills, where there is excitement about learning, where there are high and clear expectations of performance, and where each student is challenged to reach their potential.
