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

Nelson Elementary School is a small rural school with an enrollment of about 70 students in grades Kindergarten through grade five. Our school excels in creating a family atmosphere through multi-grade classrooms, the collaboration of local groups and organizations, and close interaction between each class.

In addition to academic subjects, Nelson offers music, art, physical education,Spanish,nature studies (Harris Center), and instrumental lessons. Its students are supported by Title I services in reading and math, a special education teacher, a school counselor, an occupational therapist, a speech therapist, and a school nurse.

The efforts of the faculty and staff to establish a productive and nurturing learning environment for children are greatly aided by strong community involvement and support. Nelson School is a place where there is a strong emphasis on basic skills, where there is excitement about learning, where there are high and clear expectations for performance, and where children are challenged to reach their full potential.

The Nelson Elementary School staff participates in professional development opportunities, which impact school improvement issues on a school-wide level. This allows us to use our financial resources wisely and provides us with a shared professional vision that fosters school-wide collaboration and support.

After being visited by Logan Chaput, owner of The Greater Keene Wildlife Rehab and Sanctuary, and a few of her furry friends during community week, Nelson School students were inspired to hold a drive for them. Students and staff brought in items throughout the first two weeks in November and the K/R class sorted and counted the collection on Friday. We are proud to announce that we collected a total of 128 items for the animals. We greatly appreciate the generosity of all those who gave to this drive.
