School Description

Charlotte Park Elementary is a neighborhood school in the heart of West Nashville. We pride ourselves on being very diverse: At Charlotte Park, our students represent 17 different languages, and we encourage our students and families to share their cultures through several programs each year.

At Charlotte Park Elementary, our vision is to keep our focus on our students every day. Our mission is for our staff, parents, guardians and students to collaborate in order to support the social, emotional and academic development of all students to prepare them for college and career readiness. We help do this through after-school tutoring and Encore, our program for gifted and talented learners.
