Nishuane Overview

 Nishuane School is the district's PreK-2 Gifted & Talented Magnet School. Our vision is to develop creative, curious, and confident learners through academic exploration, healthy relationships, and exposure to the arts.

Nishuane School provides students with the foundational skills to develop their talents and interests to ensure academic success in a diverse environment; actively engaging families and partnering with the community. Our magnet program offers our children many opportunities to participate in a wide range of exciting areas of study.

At Nishuane School, we believe that children learn best in a positive and supportive learning environment. As students develop their social skills through learning experiences and interactions with peers and adults, we emphasize aspects from Responsive Classroom (practices that emphasizes social, emotional and academic growth) and Bucket Filling (a classroom program reinforcing kindness and respect among students) for our positive behavior model.

The Special Nishuane Arts Program (SNAP) is an integral part of every child's academic experiences. All students receive weekly instruction in music (vocal and instrumental), physical education, art, technology, and library and every child at Nishuane School participates in a play each year. The classroom and SNAP teachers collaborate to select a play that integrates classroom learning with all areas of the show. All students at Nishuane School also participate in the Mandarin World Language Program.

Aesthetic enrichment courses are designed to allow children to explore a variety of disciplines to see what they like and to cultivate their strengths and talents. Creative "I" courses provide enrichment for children who have shown special abilities and interest in one or more subjects. There are approximately 70 specialty courses offered to our students as part of our magnet theme.

Students at Nishuane also participate in a three-tiered academic enrichment program based on Joseph Renzulli's Gifted and Talented Model. Children receive additional instruction in large and small group settings to develop creative thinking, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.
