Nashville Prep is a free, open-enrollment public charter school serving scholars in grades five through eight. As a part of the RePublic Schools network, Nashville Prep is dedicated to reimagining public education in the South. We focus heavily on building strong foundational skills in math, reading, and computer science that set our scholars up for future academic success. TVAAS, or the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System, measures student growth year over year. Nashville Prep earned a TVAAS score of Level 5, the highest a school can earn, for the 2018-2019 school year. This academic score serves as evidence that our teachers are helping our students grow.
WHAT SETS US APART
At Nashville Prep, our mission is to ensure your scholar is on the path to college from the moment they step foot in our building. We hold your scholar to high behavioral and academic expectations to help them be successful today and to prepare them to be successful in college and beyond. We are proud to serve families and students in North and West Nashville, as well as a few areas in Antioch. Additionally, we prioritize family engagement in order to build a safe and happy environment at our school and because we believe that our families are our partners in this work.
