A Nido Day

Students spend the majority of their day in their respective homeroom classes, where they learn core content of language arts, math, science and social studies under the instruction of their primary teachers in coordination with assistant teachers and other support specialists.   At some point in the day, students will have a 95-minute Spanish and Specials Block (45 minutes for each class with 5-minute transition); students attend Spanish classes daily, while the Specials schedule rotates among art, music, and physical education.
