Ensworth School

211 Ensworth Ave, Nashville, TN 37205

Founded and operating for nearly half a century as an elementary school, Ensworth opened a high school division on a separate campus on Highway 100 in August 2004. The lower school (grades K-5) provides sound training in the basic academic skills and subjects; in many ways, however, it is a progressive school operating within a traditional framework. The transitional middle school (grades 6-8) emphasizes organizational and study skills, as well as responsibility for one's work. High school programming (grades 9-12) centers around the following skills: collaboration, communication, observation, speculation and hypothesizing. Boys and girls in grades 9-12 participate in one community service day per quarter. The Capstone Program enables qualified juniors and seniors to extensively explore an academic interest that lies beyond the normal Ensworth curriculum. Interested students investigate, propose and gain approval for a specific Capstone project in grade 11, then pursue that project as soon as spring break of junior year. Portions of the project may include extensions of courses taken at Ensworth or at other learning institutions. Independent research or participation in internship programs, workshops or seminars related to the topic of interest may also be part of the project.
