16 Parent Reviews for Nottingham Elementary School

Nottingham. I am a parent who had doubts about public elementary school. But after all the recommendations and research, I decided to try it out. I am pleasantly surprised what an outstanding school it is. It is a close net community and the educators are thoughtful, well informed,caring, and nurturing. ...  Read more

Four of my children have attended Nottingham. The first two had a wonderful education with superb teachers. Unfortunately, the best teachers have left, largely due to the micromanaging and unyielding behavior of the principal. The last few teachers assigned to my children have generally been nice ...  Read more

As a rather new parent, I was excited about this school based on its rating and reputation but quickly realized that there are inherent problems. 1) There is no supervision at recess and little in the lunch room which has led to some bullying issues. The school insists at PTA meetings that there is no ...  Read more

My son just graduated from Nottingham last spring. I cannot say enough about this school. We transferred him from a "choice" school in which he was not receiving adequate stimulation and was struggling in some ways. Nearly every teacher who we dealt with at Nottingham was challenging and warm. His ...  Read more

Fantastic school and a great principal! I've read all the reviews on this website that consistently bash Nottingham's principal, but it leads me to wonder that the school probably does as well as it does because of the administrative staff---including the principal. This school runs like a well-oiled ...  Read more

Kids may not ...  Read more

A student pushes another student can simply be a disagreement ...  Read more

I've had my child at this school for 2 years now and the teachers are better than we could've hoped for. The principal - not so much. Submit a FOIA request for the school's scores and you'll see the teachers are doing a fantastic job while the principal's scores are consistently not up to par. This has ...  Read more

Nottingham is an amazing school. The teachers are incredibly dedicated and hard working. The principal has extremely high standards and holds the teachers and staff accountable. This has not always been popular with some of the teachers who were used to the do-nothing former principal. There is an ...  Read more
