George P. Nicholson School
George P. Nicholson School opened in September of 2002 and provides programming for kindergarten to grade six students residing in the neighborhood of Twin Brooks. We are very fortunate to have a beautiful facility, wonderful children, a dedicated staff and a welcoming, supportive community.
From the first day we have focused on the important work of teaching and learning. We have truly worked together as a community to "Inspire a World of Wonder". With the support of our community, we are preparing our students for the future by emphasizing student programming that develops inquiry skills. Through our teachersí use of best practices which include problem solving, questioning and assessment for learning we support our studentsí growth as curious, reflective and critical thinkers.
Additional programming enhancements include: French Language appreciation for Kindergarten through grade two, French as a Second Language for grade three through grade six, an emphasis on a literature rich environment with our strong library program, a flourishing music program, the advantage of an environmental garden, informed use of technology to support student learning, and support for the development of healthy and physically active lifestyles.
Our desire is to provide a well-balanced educational experience to help our students succeed as knowledgeable, creative, reflective, caring and principled citizens in our rapidly changing world.
We believe strongly in a culture of collaboration and meaningful dialogue between teachers, administrators, parents and students - one that supports and strengthens the learning process.
