Both of our children attend Nishuane School, and we have had very positive experiences here!!

Horrendous. Awful. I can not recommend this school at all. If you want your kids yelled and screamed at by lazy teachers (who should probably retire), then please, by all means send your child here.

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 to speak of and frankly, it is like a circus with the principle and her assistant who seem to want to perform a show and not at all about the children. We were told by the principle that under no circumstances could we request to move to a different school and that the school we wanted was not available to transfer to and we could not leave during the school year. Later, I found this to be untrue. A different child from my son's class easily changed to the school we asked to transfer to with support from the same principle. This school is not child centered.

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.
