2015-2016 ANNUAL REPORT Academies of Nashville Metro Nashville Public Schools


Message from the Academies of Nashville Director How do the Academies of Nashville continue to make a difference in the lives of the youth of Nashville? In the data-driven world of education, we are often reminded to look at the evidence. I was reading a recently published article from the US Department of Education, “Using Evidence to Create Next Generation High Schools,” where the following evidence-based strategies are used to transform high schools: 1) participation in rigorous curriculum; 2) small learning communities/small schools of choice; 3) career academies; 4) dual enrollment; 5) early college high schools; and 6) college and career counseling. Most of these strategies are what we call the Academies of Nashville and we have experienced first-hand the difference it is making in our students’ lives. Strategy 1: We know that students who engage in rigorous high school curriculum will have the potential to improve their academic performance and be more prepared for college-level coursework. For the Academies of Nashville, that rigorous curriculum has included an increase in Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Cambridge AICE. Since 2013-14, we have experienced a 43.2% growth rate in these offerings. Strategy 2: Since 2006 when we started the Academies of Nashville, we have known the value of breaking down the large comprehensive high schools. We needed a structure to foster strong relationships among students, teachers, and members of the community to enhance students’ learning experiences. I recently came across a letter of support for our original Smaller Learning Community Grant where the then Director of High Schools, Jim Overstreet, said, “Hope is powerful. In the presence of hope, students can accomplish great things, but when hope starts to wane, failure and decisions to drop-out [of high school] become the reality. Our community remains hopeful that our high schools will soon be places where all students feel a sense of belonging, enjoy learning, become involved in a variety of activities, and establish meaningful relationships.” Nine years and approximately 12,258 additional graduates later, the Academies of Nashville continues to show evidence that the structure works. Strategy 3: Approximately 95% of the pathways within the Academies of Nashville are based on career/industry themes, and the student experiences are grounded in authentic experiential learning including career fairs, guest speakers, industry-related fieldtrips, job shadowing and internships. As you will see in the following annual report, this experiential learning is a cornerstone of the academies, where business and community partners make learning not only exciting, but real for our students. Strategy 4: One of the Five Characteristics of a MNPS Graduate outlines how we strive for every student to engage in some type of college credit-bearing, college-level courses while still in high school. Every single pathway of study within the Academies of Nashville has an aligned college credit-bearing course to give all students the opportunity to better understand college-level material and be prepared to enter post-secondary education. Strategy 5: Early college high schools—The Academies of Nashville want to provide all students with the opportunity to earn early college credit and prepare for post-secondary success. As mentioned earlier and as you will read more about in this report, our early college credit rate continues to grow each year. Many pathways will allow students to earn up to 12 hours of college credit in the career area. For students who also add their dual enrollment from general education courses, students could easily start college with 20+ hours of college credit completed. Strategy 6: Individualized college and career counseling is so important in urban education where many of our students will be first-generation college students. The academy model provides the structure for this counseling to be an important part of the students’ high school experience. Within this structure, students not only have the same school counselor throughout the academy, they also have an advisory period where the student is assigned to one adult staff member. Developmental research shows that having one or more caring adults in a child’s life increases the likelihood that they will flourish and become productive adults themselves. Career counseling and preparation are also very important as we prepare our students for life after high school. Most of our pathways of study offer a nationally-recognized industry certification. In the spring of 2016, 207 students passed these certifications ranging from Autodesk Certified User to a Certified Clinical Medical. As the 2015-16 school year ended, we prepared to introduce a new Director of Schools to MNPS and the Academies of Nashville. As I look back over not only 2015-2016, but the past nine years, I am proud of the work of the Academies of Nashville and believe that Dr. Joseph and his leadership team will feel that same level of pride and ownership—I hope you will find evidence in this report that show, we are working to make a difference in the lives of the youth in Nashville.

Experiential Learning Experiential learning is a process through which students develop knowledge, skills, and character from direct experiences outside the classroom. In the Academies of Nashville, every student participates in at least one experience each year of their high school career.

Freshmen attend the Career Exploration Fair and go on a college visit. Sophomores take part in an industry related field trip to solidify their academy choice. During the junior year, a student has the opportunity to job shadow a professional in a career in which the student has interest. As a senior,

students take all of these experiences and develop a capstone project. Each experience is meant to build upon one another in order to narrow a student’s career interests. The statistics to the right indicate the percentage of students who completed the specific experience during the grade level in which it is to occur. 4

Antioch High School Executive Principal: Dr. Adrienne Battle Koger & Ms. Melissa Harkreader

Antioch High School is home to four National Model Career Academies and an outstanding Ninth Grade Academy. The Academy of Engineering and Automotive Technology, the largest Academy at Antioch, had major accomplishments this year. The Robotics Team, the Cybears, presented on FIRST Robotics and Engineering at PTC Live Global Expo, and at the Nashville Mini Maker Faire. Chemistry students in the Academy of Engineering and Automotive Technology participated in Project Based Learning where they designed a vehicle, described how it incorporated the gas laws in an essay, and presented their projects to engineers of Nissan. Eight students in the Academy of Teaching and Service received industry certification in Education Fundamentals, and thirty-nine completed dual credit requirements. As an academy, we continue to increase our students’ exposure to a strong college-going culture. Our pathway teachers joined with the Nashville Rescue Mission to create a partnership through Project Based Learning that opened the hearts and the minds of our students to the reality of providing services for others. In addition, the ROTC instructors exposed students to leadership opportunities across many disciplines and provided services for our lowimpact students through an interdisciplinary

Project Based Learning collaborative. Our Academy of Hospitality and Marketing proudly received DECA National Gold Level certification for development of our student-run, school-based enterprise. Additionally, three teams of students participated in events at the DECA national competition. Our Culinary Arts program was selected as one of Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies Elite 50 Programs. Students in the Tennessee Credit Union Academy of Business and Finance had an awesome year, and increased the pass rate of students sitting for industry certifications. 100% of the students sitting for the Credit Union Financial Counseling certification passed. In addition, seniors in this academy designed and implemented their first “Bridges to Business” conference for our ninth grade students to give insight into the pathways and careers in the business and finance sector. It was interesting to see the engagement between our senior and freshman students. It was a year of major accomplishments for the Antioch family. We stayed true to our vision and goals, and spent another year Being Engaging And Responsive to Students. Go BEARS!

Taking It Beyond the Classroom The Tennessee Credit Union created an incredible intern experience for seven of our students in the Tennessee Credit Union Academy of Business and Finance. Our students spent the summer working as tellers and customer service representatives preparing to operate and manage the branch located on the school’s campus. In these capacities, students handled members’ transactions, opened new accounts, marketed the new “Kasasa” accounts and offered financial advice to members. While working, they received training that included topics ranging from budgeting, debt management, taxes, investments, to retirement planning. The experience the interns received during the summer helped prepare them for the Financial Counseling Certification program offered by the Credit Union National Association. One-hundred percent of the students sitting for the exam passed all eight required exams to become nationally certified as Financial Counselors and may now use the Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor (CCUFC) designation after their name. Our students are now prepared to control their financial futures while helping family and community members do the same.

Cane Ridge High School Executive Principal: Michel Sanchez

Cane Ridge High School had an exciting year full of highlights. Continuous improvement in student engagement and achievement continue to be the focus for Cane Ridge. The Academy of Law conducted its fourth year of operating the Cane Ridge Restorative Court with support of the Juvenile Courts and the Tennessee Bar Association. With the support of our partners and the continued dedication from our students, the Restorative Court was able to more than double the number of cases heard this year. The Academy of Law also grew their program by adding a class specifically tailored to freshmen. This class proved to be extremely successful for those ninth grade students interested in pursuing a career in the area of Criminal Justice. The Academy of Architecture and Construction, added another valuable partner this year. The Nashville Area Plumbing and Mechanical Association devoted countless hours to the Residential and Commercial Construction pathway. Their presence in

this Academy contributed to the continued success of our students as well as this Academy. The Academy of Arts and Communication hosted a field trip with Google where they were able to have 99 percent of their sophomores included in this experience. The Audio/Visual pathway provided daily announcements via podcasts as well as broadcasted several live events. The Academy of Health Management students received high awards at HOSA competitions with a few students advancing to the National level. Additionally, the Health Administration students continued using the Healthcare Financial Management Association’s on-line software to prepare for an industry certification that is highly valued by the health business community throughout the United States. The academy had 14 students attempt the Certified Revenue Cycle Representative industry certification. To have the states only high school students sit for a certification coveted by business professionals was more than humbling.

A Home Run Hit The Academy of Architecture and Construction, with the help of the academy business partners, began the construction of the dugouts on the baseball fields at Cane Ridge. This project was kicked off in the spring of 2014 with the academy students designing the dugouts in the REVIT software, and with the help of Messer Construction, going to Metro and obtaining a building permit.

The academy partners provided key leadership for a capital campaign. After enough money and in-kind donations had been received, the academy embarked on the construction of the dugouts. Academy students worked side by side with instructors and apprentices from WASCO and completed the entire dugout project in spring of 2016.

Academy Coach: Pamela Walker

Change, someone once said, is the only constant in life. Change at Glencliff High School is carried out to meet the needs of our students and better prepare them for life after graduation. This year, we changed our mission statement to better reflect our commitment to all stakeholders. The new mission of Glencliff High School, adopted in 2015, is to be a diverse community of engaged learners who commit to creativity, collaboration, continuous improvement, and social-emotional growth. We made that happen during the 2015-2016 school year in a number of ways. The Academy of Medical Science and Research went through the National Career Academy Coalition’s accreditation process and was named a Model Academy. This makes all three of Glencliff’s academies, Model status. Being wall to wall model academies means that we have proved our commitment to the academy model and are actively engaged in providing the highest quality of real world experiences to our students, while worked collaboratively with our business partners. We won two “Academy Awards.” The partnership between our Academy of Medical Science and Research and Meharry Medical College was recognized for having the Externship of the Year, and was named the Partnership of the Year in the area of Health and Public Services. Our ProStart Team won first place in the state competition for the second year in a row! Chef Alyce Scrivner and her students represented Tennessee in the nation’s premier competition focused on restaurant management and culinary arts. Our business partners grew by adding a total of seven new partners this year! This has made a huge impact on our ability to provide quality experiential learning opportunities to all students in our three career themed academies. Speaking of experiential learning, our data showed a drastic increase. The number of sophomores who went on an industry related field trip increased by 165% over the previous year; while the number of juniors who had a job shadowing opportunity increased by a whopping 275%! Donna Copas was named an MNPS Blue Ribbon Award winning teacher, which is an honor bestowed on only 50 teachers annually.


More Than Just A Partnership The relationship between Meharry Medical College and Glencliff’s Academy of Medical Science and Research is more than just a business partnership. Meharry works as hard to meet the needs of the Academy’s teachers as it does the students. While a variety of experiences have been provided to students, including field trips and job shadows, health fairs, case studies, internships, and the Healthy People Challenge, the teachers have been given a high level of support through externships designed and funded by Meharry. During the summer of 2015, the externship was taken to a new level when the Meharry staff planned an externship in Atlanta that included a visit and tour to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). As a result, a theme for the year was created and many PBLs were planned. “Project 38” posed the question, “In 20 years will your life be ‹, ›, or = to what it is today, based on your decisions?” This theme made all stakeholders take a hard look at their current decisions in regard to their health, lifestyles, food, sustainability, and other areas as related to life 20 years into the future.

The students were able to see the grounds of the race from an open field to a racetrack fit for thousands of people. What a unique real-world learning experience! The stories are numerous. So many of our business partners have integrated as part of the Hunters Lane family. They have provided countless job shadows, guest speakers, field trips, internships, mentoring, and the list continues. All of these experiences have totaled over 1,700 hours of time dedicated to helping our students achieve their goals and participate in experiences that will shape their futures.

This year alone, they dedicated over 270 hours to making learning real for students. Their commitment has not gone without notice. Our partnership with the Omni Hotel was recently recognized as the Partnership of the Year for all hospitality

partners across Metro schools. While certainly honored by such recognition, perhaps the most enduring quality of the Omni is their lack of desire for this notoriety. They are fully invested in our students’ futures and work in partnership with our Academy of Hospitality to expose students to one-of-a-kind experiences. Our school is proud to call them partner, but even more proud to call them family.

Maplewood High School Executive Principal: Dr. Ron Woodard The 2015-16 school year was ground breaking and inspirational for the Maplewood Community and continued with the theme “lives will be changed here everyday”. The year was filled with multiple student and academy successes, from the Freshman Academy Unplugged Project to the 5 awards at the Academy Awards. For the Academy of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the year began with an intense summer of construction leading to the opening of the Maplewood Automotive Training Center in Cooperation with Firestone Complete Auto Care, which continues to generate new and advanced experiences for many students. Additionally, donations from Plato’s Closet allowed students to open “Panthers’ Closet” to meet the needs of students and families throughout the cluster. Student opportunities continued to expand as Google made multiple visits to the campus—live streaming from the football stadium, hosting seniors from across the district for a conference, and sharing the Google Virtual Reality glasses experience. In April for Financial Literacy Month, families and the community were invited the campus for the first annual Funding Your Future Conference to learn and be inspired by Fifth Third Bank and keynote speaker, reality star and financial guru, Jewel Tankard. In the Academy of Energy and Power, students worked on projects with Nashville Electric Service and Stansell Electric. For NES, the students researched and practiced with drones as a way of safely inspecting

Academy Coach: Sonya Mansfield-Ross power lines. Their goal was to determine the feasibility and cost effectiveness of using new technology to improve working conditions for lineworkers. Other students worked to repurpose “waste” materials from Stansell and redefine the use of drones in their art classes. These projects culminated in various art showings and sales at galleries like Red Arrow Gallery in East Nashville, as well as garnering the attention of the Smithsonian Institute. The Academy of Sports Medicine and Wellness inspired the campus and community through a project which was motivated by off campus experiential learning. During a field trip to St. Thomas, students were touring the oncology unit and heard about a need for knitted caps for patients. Several girls were inspired and challenged the Academy’s art teacher to teach them to knit. This interest grew into the first annual Maplewood Knit-a-Thon and the efforts continued throughout the year. By the end of the year, over 100 caps were knitted and donated, and St. Thomas recognized the students in a minidocumentary and at their end-of-year volunteer banquet. As the year came to a close, the excitement remained high as Cigna and Cushion Employer Services brought NBA legend, Magic Johnson, to motivate students to overcome challenges and set goals for their future. Lives were truly changed that day as Magic connected a formerly homeless student to his personal mentors and offered him an internship within his organization.

McGavock High School Executive Principal: Robbin Wall

During the 2014-15 school year, McGavock High School’s advisory chairs identified the need to increase business engagement in the core subject classrooms. Business partners from all academies collaborated to develop a plan which they modeled for the academy leaders. Teachers taught partners a standard and partners identified real world application activities for teachers to use in their lessons. Students reported increased understanding and enjoyment when they experienced relevance in the core subjects. McGavock High School has seen growth in all areas of Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO). Highlights include achieving level 5 TVAAS status for five years in a row and growing the number of industry certifications. McGavock had the highest number of students taking industry certification exams and led the district with an 88 percent passage rate.

Business engagement outside the classroom continues to help students make stronger connections between their core and career pathway classes and their industries. Our students participated in a high level, rigorous science boot camp at Aegis Sciences Corporation. Other students worked as paid interns at Gaylord in culinary internships under the supervision of master chefs at Gaylord Opryland and in hospitality during Country Christmas. The US Community Credit Union expanded the number of student interns working in the McGavock branch and Cedarstone Bank took its first intern this year. Some students worked with the NASA Hunch Program developing prototypes for space missions, while others created Emmy Award winning videos and audio sound clips for the film industry. Twelve TSA (Technology Student Association) students went to the state convention and placed 1st in robotics and Skills USA took 2nd in Urban Search and Rescue Robotics.

From Swahili to Cyber Security Before arriving in the United States from a refugee camp in Uganda in 2013, Eric Balire had never seen a computer. Speaking only Swahili and a few words of English, he enrolled in the Academy of Information Technology at John Overton High School where he discovered his love of technology. At an academy event, Eric heard a speaker talk about hacking and cyber security. Eric was immediately hooked. When Overton started a CyberPatriot Club, Eric was the first to join. Through this club, Eric was exposed to a deeper level of learning by networking with local experts in the cyber security field. At a luncheon sponsored by an FBI affiliate, Eric was sought out by a professor from Nashville State Community College who informed him that a cybercrime program was offered at the school. Using funds from the Tennessee Promise Scholarship, Eric is now a student at Nashville State pursuing a degree in cybercrime. His future plans include being a white hat hacker and working on national security issues.

First Robotics Competition Stratford High School’s Team Sparta Bots had an impressive finish in the FIRST Robotics World Championship in St. Louis, a competition with 620 teams from more than 40 countries, placing 16th as division runner-ups. There were more than 20,000 students participating in this event, making it the world’s largest robotics competition. In the competition, alliance teams are on a quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower. Robots score points by breaching opponents’ defenses and scoring boulders through goals in the opposing tower. During the final seconds of the match, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower. As part of Team 4740, an alliance team of schools, the Sparta Bots were an impressive defensive force, persevering through every challenge in what some players called, “a war of attrition,” as the team made it through several elimination matches. Their gracious professionalism was well-noted.
