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 very much enjoyed the diversity within Metro’s district, and also the academies that were at hand for us students to choose. Some things I would change is how they go about preparing for college and for the ACT, how they distribute snow days, and also the lunching!
Greet students and escort them to classroom. Complete attendance, and monitor meals. Review or Create lesson Plan, and instruct based on outlined plan. Assist in daily transitioning. Monitor students’ behavior, and ensure all students safety throughout the day. Escort students to designated dismissal area. I have truly enjoyed this position with this agency. They're very hands on, and so are available / accessible whenever needed. It's a fast pace environment, which can be challenging at first, but there is no lack of encouragement, to help keep you motivated, and inspired throughout the day.
