Our Mission

At Nellie Hughes Stokes Elementary School it is our intention to create an atmosphere where: 
  • Students are provided with a nurturing, safe and structured learning environment in which they are valued to take ownership of their learning. In addition to academics, we build character, foster creativity and encourage social skills that will last a lifetime.

  • Faculty members are part of a supportive, professional and respectful community where contributions are encouraged and valued. As lifelong learners, our faculty aspires to be positive role models on behalf of all educators.

  • Parents support student success through open communication and involvement in their child’s education.  By reinforcing good work and social habits, our parents share in student accountability.

  • Community members work in a partnership with the school in order to share valuable resources to enhance school wide initiatives.

2012 Superstars in Education Award

N.H. Stokes’ Early Bird program is the proud recipient of a 2012 Superstars in Education Award. Our Early Bird program is designed to help students in need of additional academic support by delivering small group accelerated instruction during the first twenty-five minutes of the school day.   Superstars in Education is a statewide program awarding schools that go above and beyond in delivering quality instruction to Delaware’s students.  It is a great honor for Stokes’ Early Bird program to be a winner of this award.
