THE SCHOOL

Nashville Classical is a K-8 public charter school that opened with kindergarten in August 2013. Through a classical curriculum and within an achievement-oriented culture, we educate every student for academic success and personal excellence in high school, college and life. 
 
Located at 1310 Ordway Place, Nashville Classical is in the heart of East Nashville, home to some of the city’s most dynamic businesses, diverse neighborhoods, and high-need schools. Currently serving grades K-3, we enroll 292 scholars.  Over 60 percent of our families live below the poverty line and more than half come without basic literacy skills, including letter recognition, and the ability to write their own name. Nevertheless, we believe they will make history and be the state of Tennessee’s highest achieving children. Specifically, we think we can be the South’s first school to close the excellence gap by

  • Educating students in a racially, ethnically and economically diverse environment that still enrolls a plurality of the city’s most needy children.
  • Achieving advanced proficiency on state exams at rates only reached in the state’s wealthiest suburban schools.
  • Offering a robust specials program wherein all students study a fine art and achieve foreign language proficiency.
  • Leveraging technological solutions so that students spend more than 2 hours per day in small groups and study computer science by 8th grade.
