  • Nettelhorst Elementary School reviewed

    Our daughter started first grade at Nettelhorst in 2015. We really like the school, teachers and parent involvement as well. Its a great community. The only thing we would have liked to see a bit more of, is indulgence in sports. May be it comes in higher grades but havent seen a lot in first grade.
