About Us

Nitro Elementary is a PK-5 school located in Nitro, West Virginia and is part of  Kanawha County Schools, the largest school system in the state.  Our school is in a river community located not far from the banks of the Kanawha.  We currently have nearly 400 students enrolled. Our school colors are red and black and the mascot is the Wild Kitten. We have an active student council representing grades 3-5 and a 100 Mile Club where students strive to walk 100 miles by the end of the school year. Nitro Elementary also houses the Third Base after school program. We partner closely with the Nitro City Police Department and have very active PTO and LSIC organizations. Parents are welcomed and are encouraged to volunteer and take an active role in their child's learning.
