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.
Broad St. School has rolled with the changes over the years, but has still retained it's charm. How blessed we have been as a family to send our kids to the same school that we attended, interact with some of the same staff as we did, and enjoy each day of learning! Parent are encouraged to participate in their child's education by volunteering on so many different levels that suit not only the stay-at-homers, but the working parents as well. Despite budget cuts, we have been able to create a schedule of cultural enrichment assemblies every month for all of our students. This is a great school within a great community!
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.
My son is in pre-school for the 3rd year comming up and all of his teachers have been such a big help with him and meeting with me.Thank you.Jaime barnes
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.
