School Data



What Does Our School Offer?

East Nashville Magnet School opened its doors in the fall of 1993 as a school-within-a school on the campus of East Middle School. In 1999, the school became stand-alone and housed grades 5-12 in the historic four-story building. As the school grew and more space was needed (2004),the middle school building and the original East Nashville High School building, both on the campus, were renovated. East is in its fourth year as a Paideia school. The Paideia philosophy celebrates the fundamental notion that to be fully educated is a lifelong adventure that only begins with an individual's formal schooling. East Nashville Magnet School strives to prepare students for a full and active life of heart and mind.

High standards for attitude, attendance, and achievement are required. The school asks for involvement from the community, parents, students, and faculty. Students interested in being a part of this program should believe in life-long learning, seek intellectual growth, and desire a college preparatory education.
