    "I have a 5th grader and a 1st grader. I love Nelson Elementary! The teachers and staff are very friendly.. As far as anyone else having a bad experience here, I can honestly say that it has to be more their problem...and definitely NOT the schools. I feel that my children are safe while they are here and getting a great education. Thanks!"

    "I have three kids that attend Nelson. One is gifted, one has autism and ODD and my other is perfectly average. Prior to attending Nelson we were a homeschooling family. I'm nothing short of astounded with the amount of support we've received with all three children and the true care that shows through from the principal to each of their teachers and the amazing support staff. I had major apprehensions about sending my kids to any public schooling and am so glad we did! The quality of education is wonderful and every one of the kids' teachers is a true teacher at heart."

    "I love Nelson! I don't know what else to say. They are wonderful people. From the front office to the teachers to the lunch staff. I have never met a better teacher than my daughters teacher Mrs. Diers. I only wish she could move to the second grade so we can have her again :-) I have never...ever had a problem with bullies. I know a lot of the parents and have never heard of them having any problems either. Cindy the principal....she is just wonderful. She walks through the halls and says hi to all the students by name! She really takes the time to get to know her school. I absolutely wouldn't change a thing."

    "Absolutely love Nelson Elementary! My child was there for 6 years.The teachers are always compassionate and hands on with the students. Theres plenty of opportunities to be involved with classroom and school events. We will miss them as my child transitions to middle school"

    "My son is FINALLY done with this school, and so am I! Praise God! Kindergarten - his teacher was basically incompetent and they combined her class with a neighbor teacher who was impossibly harsh. 2nd grade we had the dumbest woman I have EVER seen in my life. 3rd grade we had 2 teachers and one was the meanest, nastiest, most abusive woman I have EVER seen. 5th grade was pathetic - FCAT FCAT FCAT - let's not teach English class, punctuation, spelling, proper sentence structure... I know lets teach reading and writing (no penmanship), have them read and write about it. Yeah, that'll work! Right? It doesn't! The principal is about useless. All I can say is thank the good Lord his elementary school career is over. Now onto the unlimited joys of Middle School."
