Social Connections


Opportunity is on the rise at Nolan Elementary-Middle School, where an inspiring culture promotes student ownership in his or her own learning. At Nolan, our passionate teachers have individualized student education, moving away from the conventional one-size-fits-all approach.
Inside the school itself, even our furniture stimulates creativity and collaboration among students. We have a learning environment that is full of creative floor areas and shared workspaces in place of isolated student desks.
And with our innovative teaching methods and stimulating classroom environment, student learning has increased with 71 percent of our students achieving one or more years of growth in reading as well as 61 percent growth in math.
