Exceptional Education

Transition Fair March 25

High School junior and seniors with disabilities and their families are invited to the Annual Transition Fair. The event is focused on preparing for life after high school.



Success for Every Student

Metro Nashville Public Schools, in collaboration with families and the community, hold high expectations for each student and strive to provide supportive environments that foster a healthy development of the whole child.  

Through rigorous standards, effective differentiated instruction, increasingly intensive interventions, and supports to meet individual needs, we believe all students will have the skills necessary to succeed.

All MNPS schools provide a continuum of services and intervention supports in physical, academic, behavioral, social-emotional, and adaptive skill areas depending on the individual need of each student.

Child Find

In accordance with Tennessee state law and Child Find obligations, MNPS strives to identify, locate, and evaluate any student who is suspected of having a disability who may need specialized instruction, intervention and/or related services. For more information visit our Child Find page.




Early Childhood EducationEarly Education Classroom

MNPS partners with parents. Our district is inclusive and we take a holistic approach to early childhood education, knowing that all children grow and develop at different rates. 

If you suspect your child has a disability, please read the exceptional education information for Pre-K families or call our office, 615-687-4551.


If your child is 3-4 years old, check out MNPS Early Learning for more information on our early childhood programs.
