Here is what all new students need to know!

Who is General John Nixon?


John Nixon was the Captain of a group of minutemen who were noted for their spirit of perseverance as they diligently prepared for the challenges they would face. Most notably, on the morning of April 19th1775, John led his team from the West Side Meeting House in Sudbury, just down the street from the site of today’s Nixon School, to battle in Concord. There, and in the days and months that followed, he demonstrated great leadership, wisdom and bravery.

Nixon C.A.R.E.S. Core Values


Cooperation: Students, staff, and parents work together toward common goals.


Aim High: Students learn that successful people take charge of their own lives and learning by setting challenging goals for themselves.


Respect & Kindness: An important part of Nixon's culture is regular recognition of the respectful and kind acts of others. We have recently placed particular focus on respecting differences in ability and supporting classmates as they learn.


Effort: One of the most important predictors of future success is one's ability to work hard and persevere. Nixon's students learn that we "work hard to get smart."


Safety: Students voted this the most important Core Value, reminding us that ensuring physical and emotional safety are the foundation on which we build our school.
