Nashville Classical Charter School gets greenlight to expand from state

One of East Nashville’s most popular and high-performing public schools, Nashville Classical Charter School, has been approved for expansion to a second campus by the Tennessee Public Charter School Commission. Nashville Classical II plans to open in the fall of 2022 with 81 students in kindergarten, with an aim of enrolling 700 students in grades K-8 by 2026. The school hopes to open a third campus in future years. 

“By opening NCII along Charlotte Pike, we will serve a diverse, growing community and give families from across the city an opportunity to attend an excellent public school that has no geographic priority zones, tests, or other requirements to attend,” said Charlie Friedman, Nashville Classical’s founder and head of school.
