Welcome to Chadwell Elementary! We take pride in being a school that promotes learning, respect and academic success. I am pleased to say that ours is a warm, welcoming atmosphere for both students and families.

We value parent involvement, whether it’s by participating in activities like Family Literacy Night or by becoming a part of our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

We are truly honored by each family and child who chooses us to be a part of their educational foundation. I welcome you to learn more about Chadwell and what we can offer your growing child.

School Description

We are the Chadwell Tigers! We encourage high levels of achievement and believe success is always possible. Every day, our Pre-K - 4th graders learn English/language arts, math, social studies, science and related arts, and participate in one hour of personal learning time. We offer before- and after-school tutoring in the areas of English, math, reading, enrichment and computer skills (primarily to our 3rd- and 4th-grade students). We also offer Encore, the district’s program for gifted learners.

Chorus and Art Club are after-school activities that help keep students engaged and growing in ways beyond their academic studies. Our Music Makes Us program is a joint effort with Metro Nashville Public Schools, the mayor’s office, and music industry and community leaders. The program focuses on music literacy and student participation in a way that embraces new technologies and reflects our diverse student population.

Our Family Literacy Night, which coincides with our annual Book Fair, is always popular. Families visit different classrooms with reading activities, games or crafts. Grade-level teachers work with families to demonstrate the learning process that takes place in the classrooms on a daily basis. It’s a fun time for all and a great community-building opportunity for our school family.

In addition, our school offers family- and parent-training sessions focused on a variety of topics in order to support parental involvement and engagement. Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) also works closely with our school.
