Nickajack Elementary School (NES) is a great school. The strong involvement at NES makes students and parents feel happy to participate in academics and the many engaging events.

Our son looks forward to going to NES & takes pride in his school. He is stimulated and has great teachers. We do we feel that NEScould offer more in the way of departing from a std curriculum, such as offering Languages, addl STEM, & other Elective courses. But, there is a strong network of After-School Progs, so that compensates.

The only real issues that we have are:
1) The quality, or nutrition of the lunches.
2) The morning dropoff of car-riding students creates quite a jam.

With those minor criticisms, NES stacks up well. Indeed, I know some parents w/ kids in nearby, prominent private schools who expressed interest in Nickajack & it's sister school King Springs.
This part of Cobb is fortunate to have a very nurturing school like Nickajack.
Nickajack has amazing teachers! They really care about students and inspire them to be respectful, responsible and be a role model. PTA is very strong. Great school!
