Nose Creek is an excellent school that focuses on the importance of reading and building a love of reading for all students. They also ensure that no student gets left behind and have implemented a literacy intervention program to work one on one with those students who are below their recommended grade level in reading skills. My daughter in kindergarten struggled with mastering the basic reading fundamentals which resulted in frustration and no interest in reading. After participating in the reading intervention program in Grade 1 the change was remarkable. She became engaged, enjoyed reading and developed a strong interest in writing. By the end of the school year she was reading at the same level as her peers and her confidence level soared. By making literacy a priority and a cornerstone of the culture of the school students are being given the foundation for future academic success by not only instilling a love for reading but also ensuring each student has a solid competency.
