Back to School Nashville High School

The Nashville High School staff is looking forward to students returning to the classroom. Principal Tate Gordon says a couple of new courses are being offered this year.

“We are offering a new robotics course that will be taught by David Schwope.  This will meet the Governor’s requirement on Computer Science being offered in every high school.  We are also offering a new class in the business department called Social Media Networking.  This will be taught by Terri McJunkins and will be a great experience for our students.  NHS has a new full-time school nurse, Elizabeth Green.  Amy Westfall is back as our Career Coach and does an excellent job.”

Gordon says the school has received preliminary test scores and that those ACT Aspire scores show progress.

“A group that ranks schools in Arkansas has released some data.  Nashville High School ranked 87th out of 261 high schools in the state of Arkansas.  This is according to our preliminary test data from the 2016-2017 school year.  We are very proud of this ranking, but don’t want to settle for just being good, we want to be great.”

Nashville High School is expecting 128 tenth graders, 124 eleventh graders, and 133 twelfth graders for a total of 385 students.

The Nashville School Board recently approved updates to Wilson Park, as well as a new agriculture building…with construction expected to start in January.
