In reading the most recent post in the reviews (June 16th, 2014), I am compelled to respond to the remarks published. First of all, there is no favoritism. It is a small school with limited classrooms, and there is great care taken to place the student where they will have their best learning experience. The PTO at Broad Street has always been one of fairness, but you must make the effort to be involved in your child's education. This group gives ALL parents and families the opportunity to be a part of the activities that they offer. If you do not go to the meetings, there is always info coming home by flyer or on the school monthly newsletter. There is even a website and Facebook page! They are highly accessible. As for the yearbook, I was in charge of it for many years while my kids were in that school. I am no longer at the school, but I know that the volunteer hours involved in creating a full-color memory book for the kids is astronomical. The 100+ hours devoted to making this book a reality for our 350+ students is truly a labor of love and is done by a parent volunteer. I saw the book, and it is excellent, with a diverse number of students represented. Rock on, PTO!

I have had children in this wonderful school since 2005. Several teachers have gone above and beyond the call of duty to assist my children, one of whom has special learning needs. This school offers cultural enrichment assemblies that happen on a fairly regular basis. The kids are always very excited when we have one of these assemblies, as they are tremendous amount of fun and a great learning experience for them. This school is heavily supported by parent volunteers. They help to run a great PTO and assist with many aspects of supporting the school staff. A beautiful, custom yearbook is put together each year that is absolutely fabulous! It is filled with pictures of the PTO sponsored events, spirit week, and sporting activities. This is all done by a parent volunteer and takes many, many hours. I feel fortunate to have had my children enrolled at Broad Street Elementary School.

My child attended 3 months of kindergarten and all of first grade. I have noticed that the its who you know, and favoritism that runs this school. For example, some kids were placed in classes together because a certain teacher pulled strings for a parent she likes. Children if tge pto were photographed in the yearbook over and over again at different socials and spiritweek. We dont need to see 7 pics of the same child. There were so many students excluded from the yearbook pics even though they attended every social event and dressed for spirit week. How sad was that! My child will not be returning to Broad Street School. Whover is in charge of the pto should celebrate fairness and equality amongst all the students. Give them all a moment to shine, not just your favorites.

Broad Street school is the greatest school ever. Everyone is so involved from the kids, teachers, parents and principal. Everyone tries there best to make this the very best school that it can be, I feel so blessed my daughter goes there. She's had such a great time the last 2 1/2 years of being a student. The teachers, as well as the parents and the principal volunteer so much of there time, and make it a wonderful place for the kids not only during school hours, but also after. I definitely think That the Broad Street School should win the $5000.00 imagine how much they could do with better computers and lap tops.

Broad Street school is a very nice school. The Principal is swift at addressing concerns and the teachers are supportive of students and available to work with parents. The school itself needs many updates as it is an older building.

Broad St. has been a wonderful experience for our 1st and 3rd grade children. Every year the teachers connect and really nurture our kids. They make sure each child is challenged, and working to their ability. The the music / art departments are fantastic. (There is a band; however, no orchestra). The principal is wonderful: very involved with the kids and families. We could not be more pleased with our experience here.

Broad Street has a wonderful group of teachers and a small school feel even though it's in a city. The staff is open to parent involvement and the PTO takes an active part in improving student life.

No doubt about it, this is a 5 star school! I, too, disagree about parental involvement. Never have I seen so many parents volunteering at a school! I can't tell you how impressed I am with the parents, teachers, staff, and the Principal. We too, made sure we bought a house in the Lincoln Park area, specifically so our children could attend Broad St. We have no regrets, and hope to be here for many years.

Broad Street School is one of the best elementary schools in the city. All of the reviews seem based on minor complaints. It is definitely a five star school. I disagree with the reviewer who said the school lacked parental involvement, there is a strong PTO! We have two children currently enrolled at Broad Street School and we could not be happier. From the Principal down to the ladies in the lunchroom, the school is so welcoming and friendly. We have found all of the teachers to be very responsive, which starts from the top down. Our principal is fantastic and we did our homework before buying in Nashua. We wanted the coveted (but rarely available) Lincoln Park neighborhood. It took awhile to find a home, but it is a stone's throw from Broad Street School and the brand new gorgeous high school.

I have a daughter that has ADD but not the hyper kind if you can believe it. She is under-stimulated which is very rare. She has the best support from her Kindergarten teacher and support instructors. We met with the team every quarter and feel that the support we got for our daughter and us was excellent. I love this school. I feel that my next daughter (kindergarten) and my now 1st grader are in great hands.

The teaching staff is great and the educational programs are as well. Music and extracurricular activities could be increased. Parental involvement is not so terrific. The PTO involves only parents they are familiar with, while others get left in the dust.

My daughter just spent her first year at Broad St. She enjoyed it, but was upset that there was no 21st Century After-School Program. Why is that? Why can't 21st Century come to Broad St?

With one child at a high level of academics and a second child in need of speech and occupational therapy, I am very satisfied with the education my kids are recieving at Broad Street School. They run the city's early education preschool for developmentally challanged children and the staff is wonderful. There are before and after school programs. Parent volunteer-run math programs, reading programs and drama are available to students. Computer classes begin in kindergarten. The current reading curriculum is taylored to each child's ability based on a test given in first grade. Because each child is educated at their own level, the self-esteem of the student is almost assured. Also, parents are required to sign off on homework and encouraged to get involved in their childs education as much as they are able. As I said, I am very happy to send my kids to Broad Street School.
