From 2019-2020...stay tuned for our updated message from our new Principal, Thomas Brocklebank!

Tradition.  Since 1957, Nelson Elementary School has been an integral part of this community.  We have many families who are in their second, third, and even fourth generations of Roadrunners.  It is this support, involvement, and love for the school that helps make Nelson a family- and community-centered school.
Balancing the traditions of Nelson Elementary against a rapidly changing world is foremost in our mission.  We are educating children for a work world that does not yet exist.  We adhere to a rigorous, standards-based curriculum facilitated by an extremely dedicated and focused staff.  Our staff approaches student learning with an attitude of “whatever it takes!”
We offer students opportunities to explore and pursue interests in music, drama, technology, sports, and community service.  We guide our students to build skills for continuous learning and growth, to be self-starters, and to step up to new challenges with fortitude and character.  We welcome your family to join us and become a part of this Legacy of Excellence!
