Parent: The school uses the arts as a focus for learning so often assignments are given that can be completed in an artistic way, to play to one's strengths and interests. It is also an accepting school, where students are encouraged to be themselves and explore different aspects of their personalities and characteristics. The only problem with the school is, just like every school, there are some cliques and groups and sometimes people are made to feel left out. However, this behavior is strongly discouraged by the administration, staff and even many of the students. In general, it is a great school!

Alum: Nashville school of the arts is very diverse. No matter your hobby, interest, or beliefs, you can find someone who agrees with you and who accepts you. There was a small amount of students for the grade I was in. Everyone knew everyone just by their name. The conservatory classes were inspiring and the teachers are always available to lean on for any needs. I have only seen a few classes that were not a high bar. All the AP and honor classes were higher level. Even with tragedies and unpleasant events, everyone was very supporting. Although Nashville school of the Arts was very open and free, there were no real clubs or activities. We had an assigned club day, but this only happened three times in the year. I really enjoyed this school because i got to experience and branch out into different arts like dance with open arms. It is also the only school with dance routines down the hallway, piano playing between classes, and open discussions without any regulations.

Parent: A great fit for my student! We didn't think she would thrive in her zoned school with 1500 students, and RNHS really gave her the opportunity to be seen and heard. Unfortunately, there is a lot of staff turnover, which I believe is in large part due to the fact that Wilco doesn't pay their teachers as much as FSSD or Metro. That meant my student lost several of her favorite teachers during her years there. Overall, from the introspection with the application process, through the personal development in iLab, I think it is a special place that allows for students to become whoever they choose to be.
