Metro Schools make significant progress, surpass state improvement gains
Metro Nashville Public Schools showed growth in achievement among all subgroups of students last year, placing the district in intermediate status - the second highest accountability category.
In 2010, Tennessee adopted new academic performance standards that are among the most demanding in the nation. Metro Schools have shown steady improvement against these higher standards.
In addition, the district made impressive improvement at every grade level on the TCAP writing assessment with nine out of ten middle and high school students scoring competent or better.
Under Tennessee’s new accountability framework, the top-performing districts are exemplary while the bottom performing districts are in two in need of improvement categories; the remaining districts are in an intermediate category. more
