ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS Across our elementary schools, teachers capture the natural curiosity and wonder their students have about the world. Through fun, hands-on lessons, students begin to learn about themselves, others and the community around them, creating a strong foundation for their future. EARLY LEARNING

At Fall-Hamilton Elementary School,

students and staff learn trauma-informed practices and build emotional supports. Students can take advantage of opportunities like Breaks Are Better, where they can go for a walk or simply get alone time when a moment of quiet is needed.

Metro Schools offers nationally recognized Pre-K programs. Using Creative Curriculum, students develop structure, socialemotional, problem solving, literacy and language skills. Studies show that Pre-K children develop literacy, language and math skills faster than their peers—and the benefits of Pre-K impact children into their teen and adult years.

ACADEMIES OF NASHVILLE Academies of Nashville provide students with one of the best college and career prep experiences in the nation, with academic experiences ranging from business and finance to health sciences or engineering. Students have a choice of 35 different academies across 12 neighborhood high schools. As an example of how the Academies benefit students, the John Overton High School health science pathway has partnerships with St. Thomas Health, HCA Healthcare and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. These partners offer at-school mentorships and clinical internships that create opportunities for students to do hands-on, real world work. One student received four job interviews in the first four days of putting out her resume. Many have been accepted to universities to study health science—including one with a full ride to Yale University. One brave student used her practiced CPR skills on a fellow student in trouble—all as a result of this program. This is only one of the many Academy pathways available at Metro Schools. To learn about others: www.mnps.org/learn/ academics/academies-of-nashville. ATHLETICS Metro Schools athletics focus not only on physical health, but also on building character for grades 6-12.

SCHOOL OPTIONS Families in Nashville have 159 PUBLIC SCHOOLS available to them—meaning there’s a school that’s right for your child. While families have many choices available through the Optional Schools Application Process, the perfect school for your student may be right around the corner in your very own neighborhood, with strong neighborhood pathways from elementary school to middle school to high school that allow students to continue their education with their neighborhood classmates.

A school tour is a great way to meet teachers and principals, observe classrooms and learn about academic programs.

WHAT IS A ZONED SCHOOL? Every child in Nashville is zoned for a specific elementary, middle and high school and is guaranteed a seat at that zoned school. Some areas also have zoned options, which give families guaranteed access to more than one school. Proof of residency is required to attend a zoned school. WHAT IS AN OPTIONAL SCHOOL? Optional schools fall into two categories: schools without a zone designed to attract students from all over town, such as magnet and charter schools, and zoned neighborhood schools with available seats. Magnet schools often offer specialized programming and may have entrance requirements. Some charter schools also offer their own application process. If a zoned neighborhood school has available seats, any student in Nashville may apply to fill them. IS TRANSPORTATION PROVIDED TO OPTIONAL SCHOOLS? Families are responsible for transportation to optional schools unless otherwise indicated on the school choice application. All high school students can ride WeGo buses free through the StrIDe program. Middle school students attending school outside of their zone are also eligible to ride WeGo buses free after parents complete a permission form at the school’s main office. WHAT IS THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR CHARTER SCHOOLS? Many charter schools use the district’s Optional Schools Application to admit students, but some use their own applications. If the charter school your child would like to attend does not appear on the application, contact that school to learn more about its application process.

REGISTER FOR SCHOOL Students can register for school online or visit any MNPS enrollment center. Enrollment centers are open Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.–3:30 p.m. To register online or to find an enrollment center near you, visit www.mnps.org/learn/ register-for-school.
