Welcome to Our School

Dr. Kimberly Bullock  Principal

Dr. Kimberly Bullock

Welcome to Neely’s Bend Elementary School in Madison, Tennessee.  I am honored to serve as the executive principal of this amazing school.  It is with excitement and dedication that I am partnering with parents, faculty and staff, and community partners to raise a standard of excellence in this local community.

At Neely’s Bend, our goal is to create an environment where courtesy and kindness prevail and where there is respect for differences in other people, customs and cultures.  We want our students to work hard individually and as a classroom community to achieve an environment where everyone feels value, believe, and know they can be successful.

It is our desire to naturally grow children academically, socially and emotionally through daily best practices, collaboration and consistency within our building.  With a dedicated staff of caring professionals, involved parents, and supportive community; our school can and will succeed in helping children become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, inquisitive readers and proficient writers. 

I look forward to getting to know you this school year and many school years to come.

Remember you are loved!

School Description

Neely’s Bend Elementary School has provided quality education in the Madison area for more than 150 years. As we have changed from a rural to a suburban/urban setting, we have always met the challenge to remain an effective school. After a one-year absence from the building, the students, faculty and staff have returned to the newly renovated building at 1300 Neely’s Bend Road. 

Our School Improvement Plan for the 2016-2017 year reflects this proud tradition. Our mission to empower students with the necessary skills to become responsible and productive world citizens is based on the premise that all students can learn in a nurturing, safe and accepting environment. Our commitment to improve student achievement is supported by a variety of teaching methods and strategies that recognize student learning styles, rates and needs. 

At Neely’s Bend, we consider the community as a resource, and our parents and students as partners. We provide many opportunities to ensure this partnership is involved in setting students’ expectations, school decision-making and support activities. We encourage you to visit our school and meet our staff and students.
