Welcome to Nathaniel Morton Elementary School
Located within walking distance to historical Plymouth Rock, Nathaniel Morton School has served the population of this coastal town since 1913. It is no wonder that our school motto is “Where Generations Have Learned.”
Our 600 students from kindergarten to grade five receive instruction in all the major academic areas. Students in grades 1-5 also take part in art, music, physical education, and technology instruction. Grades four and five also have the option to participate in band or orchestra. Class sizes average in the low to mid-twenties for grades K through five. We have an active PTA and School Council.
We have an up-to-date school library with twenty-plus computer stations. In addition, there is a separate computer lab with state-of-the-art PC hardware. All classrooms are also wired for the Internet and equipped with computer stations.
Our educational program is well correlated to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and features a workshop approach to balanced literacy and the Everyday Math Series. All of our instruction centers on a goal for differentiated learning to meet the diverse needs of our students.
