It's an okay school but does not seem to understand nor follow federal and state regulations. If you want to see success in your child you must be an active and vocal parent. good luck in the public education system if your child needs services.
Nash is a great little school. It is very easy to approach teachers and set up meetings to check on your child's progress. The late principal, Mrs. Day, really pushed academic excellence and that is why I believe the kids have done well on the state testing, but also when they have gone on to other schools. The PTA is excellent! For the past few years, the PTA has had an after program on Fridays. Also, the PTA hosts many extracurricular activities throughout the school year.
When I first enrolled my children in this school I loved it! They have been exemplary for a few years now, but for some reason things changed and I am not happy with the administration. They are very intimidating to our children, especially the 4th grade teachers and principal. There's been many instances when I have witnessed the principal and other teachers yelling at kids, I mean, what parent wants their kids to be yelled at? I understand that sometimes there is bad behavior that needs to be addressed but theres a time and place to do it. I feel as though some teachers are being bullying our children. My child no longer likes school, thanks to these teachers and the excessive amount of homework. I never wanted this to happen. I can't wait to withdraw them from this school. It's a shame how a nice little jewel in the heart of Fort Worth turned into a prison for our children...I'm VERY DISAPPOINTED!
My daughter attended for third grade last year and came out with a fear of the administration and less interest in actual learning. The principal rules by intimidation. She is the primary reason we withdrew. I would give it a one star if I was only rating the administration. My daughter's last school in southeast Dallas was friendlier, less test focused (while still being rated exemplary) and more child focused than this school. Her teachers were good but there was much less communication with parents, and less organization in homework. I was disappointed that there was not daily at home reading assigned besides a worksheet or two once a week. There would be the occasional motivational "read for fun!" handout but many parents won't enforce what's not assigned.
We love this little gem close to downtown. We live pretty far away but my husband takes both boys on the way to work each morning. My oldest, now in 5th grade said he liked all his teachers and loves the robotics club. The teachers are happy and supported by administration and Ms. Day, the principal, is involved with each student and parents. I'm so lucky to have my youngest start PreK at Nash.
It's a wonderful school. I'm proud to say my daughter goes to Charles Nash. She loves her teachers and has made many friends. The YMCA after care program is also a great part what I like about this school. Over all, I give it a 10.
Nash is great. I am an educator, myself, who pays a lot of detail to the curriculum, safety and overall quality of schools. My youngest child attends Nash while my oldest attends a private school. I can tell you that my child at Nash is getting a superior education.
Nash is a great school and is destined to be one of the greatest in the Fort Worth District. With a shift in demographics downtown, you will see more and more parental involvement. Combine that with the already tremendous base of parents and the incredible experience and commitment of the teachers and you will see Nash as one of the schools leading the shift in perception and achievement for public education in Texas.
Nash ia all about the TAKS and their scores prove it. Teacher experience is the key along with a strong community interest. Nash still has a long way to go in motivating teachers, staff, students and parents to reach their full potential; I think this is due to the lack of leadership and sincere interest from the principal. All in all this is a good school with an even greater potential.
Nash is a great school. A private school atmosphere in a public school. Small classes, individulized instruction, and experienced teachers. A calm, stable, no nonsense atmosphere with lots of technology, a computer lab, labtops, cameras, etc for students learn. Field trips and fun are always around the corner for students at Nash. The school is full of light and windows and the gym is WOW! A great after school program.
