On Monday, Aug. 7, Metro Schools kicked off another year that will exceed great expectations. The 2017-2018 school year will bring new programs for students, like the new STEAM initiative that will be introduced in 18 of our middle schools.

Today, the district welcomed approximately 88,000 students, including 7,259 new kindergartners who started the first day of their journey at MNPS. The district opened nearly 291,000 square feet of new or renovated space, including a much-anticipated brand new Tusculum Elementary School that opened its doors today.

Today is the first day of a year filled with infinite possibilities for students. We’re excited to welcome back all of our students and begin another year of exceeding great expectations!
