Those are some of the strongest schools in the FWISD system. While I don't have kids myself, I do have several coworkers who moved to that area specifically for those schools.

I don't live in Ryan Place but I am quite familiar with the area.


Those three schools you mentioned are definitely strong options -- attendance at Paschal in some form is guaranteed as Ryan Place is zoned to Paschal. The odds of getting selected for Daggett Montessori are also better by virtue of being within the E.M. Daggett Elementary attendance zone, but keep in mind that not all of Ryan Place is zoned to E.M. Daggett ES. The southernmost two blocks of Ryan Place closest to Berry (south of Lowden) are zoned to Contreras Elementary instead, though I have heard talks from the school board about rezoning those blocks to E.M. Daggett ES instead to reduce overcrowding at Contreras.


I would definitely try my best to avoid the zoned schools aside from Paschal -- the zoned K-8 schools are lower performing schools, and are on the TEA's PEG list, though that is largely from having largely lower socioeconomic student bodies. E.M. Daggett Elementary seems to draw more from the areas east of Hemphill and the railroad tracks which are within their attendance zone rather than from Ryan Place and southern Fairmount (where it should be the "neighborhood" school).


In terms of private schools, the closest good private that I can think of would have to be Fort Worth Country Day (FWCD). Hill School is also an option if you have a special-needs child. The Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts (FWAFA, not to be confused with the private Fort Worth Academy) is a grades 3-12 charter school (not private), but might be worth considering too if your child is more into fine arts and the like.

If you are willing to look for a private school south of I-20, then Trinity Valley and Fort Worth Academy (both are located in the same vicinity) are also options. FW Academy is K-8 only, so your child could go from there either into another private school or to Paschal's college-preparatory track. All Saints Episcopal School is also on the west side of Fort Worth, just outside of 820 near the interchange with I-30.


Keep in mind that FWCD and Trinity Valley are usually considered to be the most prestigious of the private schools in Fort Worth, so it might be a bit harder to get in there.

Alice Carlson has been wonderful for us (We're zoned Tanglewood, but preferred the philosophy at AC). But it's a lottery for entry and is very competitive.

Private schools reps:

FWCD: old money country club school. K-12

Trinity Valley: new money strivers school. Quite competitive. K-12

Fort Worth Academy: quirky school that emphasizes technology and project-based learning. K-8

We didn't consider religious schools so I don't have details about those.

Paschal's honor's program has an amazing reputation. Not everyone gets in though and I have no idea how good the education is if your kid doesn't get into the honors program.

Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts is the place to go for a fine arts emphasis. I have read a few recent articles about parents complaining about some teacher changes at the school. I don't know how serious the issues are though.
