Welcome to Niemann Elementary School
Niemann School is a student-centered elementary school where a dedicated staff works diligently to meet the needs of each learner. We are a Title I schoolwide school (with approximately 92% free/reduced lunch) where research-based instructional programs such as Balanced Literacy and Everyday Math are in place at all grade levels and reviewed on a continuous basis for improvement. We use PBS (Positive Behavior Supports) to maintain a positive learning environment, teach Lifeskills, and establish expected schoolwide procedures.
Niemann goals of increasing student achievement in reading and math have been the focus of school improvement efforts. These goals provide a shared focus for professional development, classroom instruction, and student achievement and assessment. Struggling students are identified and provided with interventions to help them become more successful. Some of these interventions include Read 180, Raz Kids, Leveled Literacy Intervention, Fundations, and Wilson Reading.
The Niemann Family Involvement Team (NFIT) supports a variety of activities, events, and workshops for family participation and parent training to encourage a positive home-school partnership. Niemann also houses an after school program through the Boys and Girls Club, and offers Supplemental Educational Services (SES) on site.
