What Makes Our School Unique?
It is our vision to do what is best for students to prepare them for the next phase of their academic lives.
We will prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to become responsible and productive citizens. Our emphasis is on the whole child. We intend not only to contribute to the development of the intellect but to the physical, emotional, and social skills of each student. This will ensure that we are Educating for Success.
We realize the importance of the school, parents and community working together to capitalize on the strengths of our students. Together Everyone Achieves More. It is vital that we model the behaviors we want children to learn. Students will be afforded the opportunity to grow and develop to become a positive part of society.

PENCIL & Community Partners
PENCIL Foundation, a nonprofit organization, links community resources with Nashville public schools. A PENCIL Partner is a business or other community organization that teams up with a Metro school to volunteer time and donate resources that promote student success.
DuPont Company of Old Hickory - The DuPont Company of Old Hickory continues to contribute both time and money to promote learning and leadership in our school. Volunteers provide tutoring as well as organizing experiences for students ’overall growth. DuPont also contributes to assemblies, organizes and judges essay contests and numerous other activities which promote strong ties between school, industry and community.
Brandywine Women's Club - Brandywine Women’s Club is totally involved in making the activities successful. They spend many hours collectively in the school helping with ticket sales, walk to school day, hoops for heart, field day, annual golf tournament, proctoring, providing for our indigent students, and participating in our “angel tree” at Christmas.
The community is extremely supportive. Parents are involved through the PTO and actively volunteer on campus. The support is evident in our extracurricular activities such as Taste of the Towns, Hands on Nashville Day, Annual Golf Tournament, school dances, field days, 8th grade picnic, as well as other areas that ensure children will learn.
