Inviting, Diverse & on the Rise

Metro Nashville Public Schools support one of the country's most unique and exciting cities. Our schools represent the best of Nashville: inviting, diverse and on the rise. We are entrusted with one of society’s most important duties: to educate our children, and it is a responsibility our dedicated employees take to heart every single day.

It’s our goal to ensure every student is known and our teachers and support staff have the resources necessary to support a student’s unique skillset.


Grow with Us

Just as we want to instill a love of learning in our students – we want the same for our employees. That’s why we offer a wide variety of professional development opportunities and a state-of-the-art facility dedicated solely to the quality of teaching and instruction in the classroom.As a new-to-MNPS teacher, you’ll have an immediate network of support through our unique New Teacher Academy mentorship model. Your career growth is important to us – and we want you to never lose your love for learning. 

We’re equally as committed to paying talented teachers what they’re worth – and so is our city. Mayor John Cooper’s recent budget proposal is slated to make Metro Schools the best paying district for teachers, new and veteran, in the entire state.


Our Schools

We have 132 schools, and each has a unique story. Many schools have a specific academic focus like science or arts, some have unique opportunities like recording studios or a partnership with the zoo, but all schools have something special to offer our students and our staff. Every school is committed to serving each student’s individual needs.


Your Health & Wellness

Metro Schools is a pioneer in employee health and wellness and is home to an award-winning employee health and wellness center which features an on-site Vanderbilt Health Clinic, a full gym, a walking track, free group fitness classes, free personal training sessions, physical therapy offices and more.

From the common cold, to preventative care and health coaching, to mental health – our employees have access to affordable, quality health care throughout the county. Our partnership with Vanderbilt Health offers five clinics throughout the metropolitan Nashville area for retirees, employees and their families.
