Metro Nashville Public Schools Reviews
Overall my experience with MNPS has been average since I’ve joined them. I like how diverse our district are compared to others. I have the chance to engage with people of many different cultures, which is awesome! However there are things that need to change, one of which being college readiness. I feel like the only schools that actually prepare students for college readiness are academic required schools, so if you don’t attend one of the 2 academic required high schools (MLK and Humm Fogg) then you are out of luck. I attend one of the 2 academic required schools and I can say that they definitely prepare us for college, but when I hear students that attend other high school talk about how they weren’t prepared for state tests, ACTs and/or SATs it saddens me because I know that MNPS is capable of so much more!
I've been enrolled in the MNPS system since I first began school and unfortunately I will graduate within the same system. Throughout the years theres been pros and cons. The teachers were friendly but not the best at teaching. Admistration was never great or helpful. The school spirit was never enforced or encouraged, unless of course you got along well with the administration or on the football. Overall, I would recommend parents to enroll their children in another neighboring system.
My experience with Metro hasn't been the best. I was first put in Metro when I started elementary school. From what I can remember, those were great years. My teachers were willing to help me and I made life long friends. During 5th and 6th grade, I went to a charter school, and then back to Metro for middle school and high school. The transition back to Metro was not tough because the work load and quality wasn't as intense as my charter school. I noticed that the teachers weren't as hands on with students like my old school. I felt that was unfair to the students and teachers. They should've been properly equipped with the necessary training to lead students to their chosen life goals. Going into my senior year, administration has tried to implement training for teachers to be more humanistic in their classrooms. During the first week of school, my school did Royal Introductions, which included building morale among classmates and teachers.
