A LETTER FROM THE

DIRECTOR The Academies of Nashville celebrated its 10-year anniversary in the 2016-2017 school year with several remarkable milestones and exciting developments. When we began in 2006, the district’s graduation rate was 59 percent. Today, the graduation rate is 80 percent. As our graduation rate rose, we saw an additional 12,250 young people graduating from high school to thrive in college, career and life. The collaboration among our schools and hundreds of academy partners serve as a reminder of what is possible when we all want the best for our children. In March 2014, the Academies of Nashville became the first Ford Next Generation Learning Model Community in the nation, shortly after receiving a visit from the White House noting the transformation of our schools. To date, more than 4,223 people representing 40 states and 10 United Kingdom communities have visited our schools to learn how Nashville renewed itself, studying our extensive business engagement and academy model. Visit any of the 39 academies in the 12 largest neighborhood high schools in Metro Nashville Public Schools today and you will see why the Academies of Nashville still represents one of the best college and career prep programs in the nation. As we look forward, we remain resolved to refine our practices and show the difference between an Academy and a really great career and technical education program. Regional workforce projections guide the type and number of career academies we have. Student interest surveys, parent focus groups and faculty feedback sessions help us understand how to address academic equity and access. It’s everyone working together to show the relevance of what students are learning so students are more engaged and therefore, more successful. Whether it’s the career exploration fair, a guest speaker, an immersive field trip or job shadow - the effort to make experiential learning meaningful makes a difference in the lives of our students. We look back at the accomplishments of our Academies, thankful for the support of our partners and the Nashville community. We look forward with enthusiasm to the great things to come!

Glencliff High School remains one of the most culturally and racially diverse student populations to be found anywhere, with students hailing from 42 different countries and speaking some 30 languages. This diversity is celebrated as our strength during International Days and at the largest event the school hosts all year, Cultural Explosion, a night event that brings the community and families together. The Class of 2017 shared their plans for life beyond the Cliff in a survey with their senior counselor and this is what they said: 73% were headed to further their education either in college or a technical school; 23 % were going straight into the job market; and 4% were going to the military. 2017 saw the opening of the long awaited Humana Greenhouse at Glencliff. This joint venture included Hands on Nashville, Humana, and Cummins working together through grant funds to make this state-of-the art greenhouse possible. This project took approximately five years from idea conception to ribbon cutting, but was worth the wait for a beautiful new lab space for our Biotechnology students in the Hands on Nashville Academy of Environmental & Urban Planning.

OMAR PURSUES HIS DREAM Omar Aly came to live in Nashville from his native homeland of Egypt halfway through his sophomore year of high school. With rudimentary English language skills he was an ELL student who aspired to become a doctor. He knew the road ahead would not be easy, but with a life motto of, “Don’t try: DO”, Omar set out to find success in the Academy of Medical Science & Research. Being selected as a St. Thomas Scholar had a definite impact on Omar who graduated from Glencliff and is now at Middle Tennessee State University, studying pre-med. Because of his ties to St. Thomas he has been able to gain employment with them as a phlebotomist at one of their Nashville locations near his home to help support himself while going to college to pursue his dream. There is no doubt that someday, Omar will be known as Dr. Aly, and will look back on his academy experiences and his year as a St. Thomas Scholar as the foundation of his success in career and life.
