Suzie Estes, Elementary
Thank you for considering our school as an educational partner for your child. At Nashville Christian School, you will find a community that is committed to helping students realize and pursue their full potential--spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially--while learning to be secure in their relationship with God.
Spiritually, we lay a foundation that leads the way for each student to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We start each day with chapel or Bible class. We offer a Leadership class focused on character development grounded in Christian principles.
Our academic foundation is built with the use of research-based strategies and curriculum. In recent years, we have piloted both the Singapore approach to Math, the Daily Five method of Reading instruction, and a new Interactive Science curriculum. Technology is integrated in instruction through the use of Promethean Boards, laptops, and Ipads. Lessons are differentiated toward each student’s ability and learning style with a combination of both whole class and small group learning.
Socially, we lay a foundation by emphasizing in both word and action that we should treat each other with kindness. We start each day reciting our behavior pledge: “Today, I commit myself to respectful and responsible actions that demonstrate the love of Christ”. All students and faculty are held accountable by this pledge. We serve others through various service opportunities offered through the year. We also develop socially by giving students opportunities to have fun together. Whether it is in the cafeteria during lunch time, at one of our “Fun Fridays”, or at one of our many special events, we encourage students to grow friendships based on the principles of our pledge.
I believe your family will be blessed by joining our NCS family, and we in turn will be blessed by you. Please feel free to come by the school anytime for a tour.
