17 Parent Reviews for Nishuane Elementary School

I give the gifted magnet a huge fail. Nothing gifted nor talented. The teachers are not motivated and the leadership is very off putting.

Initially, we were thrilled and looked forward to this school. From what other parents who have older children have said, it used to be a great school. However, this school has no accountability standards because it only goes to 2nd grade. Teachers do not seem happy or supported. There is no library ...  Read more

This magnet school does not offer much in the way of gifted or talented. The administration is very dysfunctional. Discrimination and favoritism. I would score the principal a zero but you can't do that.

I'm mixed on Nishuane. It's great for the arts and I like the aesthetics/creative I courses. All kids get to be in a yearly school play. Having a foreign language at an early age (even Mandarin) is great. However, I do not like the every day math. Watchung and Edgemont do not have this and it's obviously ...  Read more

Last year was our first year in Montclair and we couldn't have had a better experience at Nishuane. It is a wam, accepting environment, well run by the administration, and our first grade teacher was wonderful, both academically and personally. I am very excited to have two kids there next fall!

My daughter started at this school in the second grade coming from a private school, I thought that she would be prepared and on grade level. Unbeknowst to me that Nishaune was above grade level. As soon as her teacher identified the problem we were able to work together along with the school's remarkable ...  Read more

Extracurricular is beyond compare. My child has been well looked after, physically, mentally and emotionally. The school principal is responsive and the teachers are wonderful.

My grandaughter went to this school until she moved out of the community year before last. She still misses it. The faculty was extremely dedicated, creative, and focused on a common mission. It, and the population, were racially and ethnically very diverse, and the symbiosis was extremely positive and ...  Read more
