    Here you go:

    OpenOffice vs. NeoOffice vs. LibreOffice | EasyOSX
    NeoOffice 3.3 Feature Comparison - NeoWiki
    OpenOffice.org vs NeoOffice in Office Suite Software

    Much more available via Google.

    You know your students the best. I think that if you review things, identify what features you think are important, and even download each program to examine the interface...you will be the best judge.

    If this is just grade school, I doubt the students will need any of the advanced functionality that might separate the two products.

    What vansmith said. Indeed, if all they are doing is word processing that can largely be done using TextEdit for such basic needs.
