We are moving to Nashville in November. Our 8 years old has been attending a British school curriculum.
We are looking for some feedback from parents whose children are presently attending the any of the above schools. Anything relevant that would help our selection process.

Greatschools.org parent reviews are very old.

Few questions that we have:
Which school offers the best support for new students?
What is the general opinion of teachers and after school programs
We are also looking for schools with ethnic diversity.

We are open to names of other schools outside of Williamson County.
Thank you
Sam

FYI Kenrose is one of the most diverse schools in the area, and at last check it had about 27 nationalities represented. It was overcrowded until the county opened Jordan Elementary School this year. Crockett is currently under capacity. I'm not sure about Clovercroft, but it has excellent school leadership.

All three have very active and involved parents and would be great for new families because that area is where most of the new construction in Brentwood is happening, and the part of town where most transplants settle.

I honestly don't think you could go wrong with any of the above.

just something to consider. Because of when the Brits start Reception, your child may be a lot younger than a lot of kids if they slot in by "grade" and not age. However, you will most likely find that your child is more than academically prepared though.

We have a couple of friends that started school in England and they were the youngest in their grades here in the US
