LEAD Public Schools, Nashville's only charter school management organization, continues to grow to serve more students and more schools. LEAD Public Schools is now accepting applications for numerous faculty positions across its network of Middle and High School campuses.


At LEAD Public Schools, we firmly believe in the potential of every student. It is our vision that 100% of LEAD Public Schools students will graduate from high school and be accepted to a 4-year college or university. We have adopted a "Whatever it Takes" attitude toward making this a reality.

LEAD Public Schools first opened as LEAD Academy 6 years ago as a fifth and sixth grade program and will graduate its inaugural class in the spring of 2014. In addition to LEAD Academy, LEAD Public Schools now operates Cameron College Prep, the first district-charter partnership in the state. LEAD Public Schools also operates Brick Church College Prep, part of the TN Achievement School District.

Through ongoing professional development, LEAD staff members are supported in engaging in active pedagogy practices. We strive to organize our curriculum around interdisciplinary learning and as such, collaboration, cooperation, and teamwork are integral components of our school. Fieldwork, service-learning, capstone projects, student-led conferences, exhibitions of student work, Saturday school, and crew/advisory, and a strong ethos of family involvement are just a few of the features all contribute to a school culture of respect, responsibility, and engagement in learning.
