Metro Nashville Public Schools Reviews

The Davidson County School system has been under heavy review after not meeting state standards and came very close to a state takeover. Parents are leaving the school system and taking out loans for private schools in Davidson County and nearby Williamson County. However, some do not have this economic luxury and are left with a strained economic system. The systems vision statement is Metro Nashville Public Schools will be the fastest-improving urban school system in America, ensuring that every student becomes a life-long learner prepared for success in college, career and life. Lets hope this is the case.
Review Metro Nashville Public Schools
Hi! What imI like about Metro Nashville Public Schools is the lots of opportunities that they provide through the different academies that are developed in all metro Nashville Public Schools. What I would like to chance in my school district is the lack of resources in the classrooms and the lack of healthier food.
I loved attending school very much and would like to continue with my education! I would very much recommend everyone to attend, its a great atmosphere and they have great teachers that never give up on their students.
