I am moving to Nashville soon and I have a 7 year old child. I really like the feel of East Nashville (5 points area). I can not find a good school for my child to attend in the area. I have looked into Lockeland, they are not accepting anymore kids for the 11-12 year. East Academy is closed, and the other schools have not gotten very good ratings. Am I looking over a great school? Any advice? Thanks!!

Thank you! Do you know the school personally? Or know someone who had a great experience with this school?

Good Pasture is a private school.
If you are willing to take a chance, get yourself on the waitlist and go to your zoned school next year. I don't have any experience with metro, but we decided to send my daughter to school after the lottery deadline in our old town. She ended up getting sent to what was considered the roughest elementary school. Outside the school was rough, but she had the most amazing kindergarten teacher. The next year 1st grade she got into the highly desirable school off the waitlist.

Try Dan Mills in Inglewood. It usually gets good ratings and has a good reputation (at least what I have heard). Anyway good luck and welcome to the neighborhood!

I live in East Nashville. My son attends Lockeland. It is a Magnet school. You have to apply via a lottery. You have to live in the priority zone. I have friends with children at Dan Mills who love it. You will need to live in Inglewood and be zoned for that school though as there are other Elementary schools in Inglewood..best of luck..

Lockland Springs Design is one of the highest rated elementary schools in Davidson Co. My wife is in the East Nashville Moms Club (which is very active and growing everyday) and the mom's with kids enrolled love it. Ours is too little right now. I've heard good things about Dan Mills in Inglewood also but know less about it. Any others I would definitely check into first and might be a bit weary about. Hope it helps and good luck on the move.

It's Goodpasture, named for B.C. Goodpasture. I graduated from there and started going to school there in 6th grade. It's a Christian private school and they do require Bible classes once you get into the high school years. However, I was in the school chorus and did not have to take a Bible class since we had a devotional once a week. There is a wait list and, although I don't know if they do it anymore, I had to take an entrance exam. I'm guessing it was to make sure I was going into the correct grade level because the school system I moved from in FL was almost a full year ahead of any school system here in TN at the time. My exprience there was mostly positive and most of the classes I took in my Senior year were collegiate classes (although not for college credit). There are other private schools and magnet schools who seemed to have better curriculum at the time I was in school, but I have no clue if that's still true now.
