At Nottingham, academic excellence flourishes in a positive, nurturing learning environment that all stakeholders in the community work cooperatively to maintain. Students receive a challenging educational experience that stimulates intellectual curiosity and encourages critical and creative thinking.

Nottingham offers a wide range of educational services. Among the many strengths of our instructional program is the Nottingham Knight Writer Exemplary Writing Project. The Knight Writer is a unique program supported by Arlington Public Schools and the Nottingham PTA.

Our bullying prevention program, “Steps to Respect,” is implemented at every grade level. Each class creates vision and mission statements to augment character education lessons. Using the latest technology aligned with Responsive Classroom best practices, instructional staff designs lessons to address a wide range of learning styles, abilities, and interests. At all levels, analysis of data is used to inform and adapt lessons to our individual learners.

At Nottingham, we are proud of our school program, our modern learning facility and our friendly, caring approach to educating children. Our motto, “The Future Starts Here – Where Every Child is a Shining Star,” reflects the excitement of all members of our Community of Learners!
