Nashville School for the Arts (NSA) is a public magnet high school including grades 9-12 for arts-interested students located in Nashville, Tennessee. Major arts areas include dance, mass media, music, theatre, and visual art. Students are expected to both study in their respective arts and complete the same academic curriculum as all other Metropolitan Nashville Public School students. While the school focuses on the arts, TCAP scores are above the Davidson County scores.[1] Students must audition, interview, or write an essay to be accepted. There is no lottery admission to NSA.



Nashville School of the Arts began as a small magnet program for arts-interested students in Pearl-Cohn High School in 1993. As time went on, NSA grew to a size warranting its own facility, which was achieved in 1996 on the former Cumberland School campus. The school has established pencil partners,[2] which is a business or other community organization that teams up with a Nashville school to volunteer time and donate resources that promote student success, as well as community partners (including Youth Villages and PG-13 players, just to name a couple0.


The mission of Nashville School of the Arts is to provide the highest quality instruction in the fine and performing arts while providing a challenging academic program for the talented and creative students in the public school community we serve.


The vision of the Nashville School of the Arts is to become the best fine and performing arts school in the nation, preparing students with the knowledge, skills,and attitudes necessary for their profession.
