Gould Turner Group 3D Video for the New Smith Springs Elementary School

From one of our 2 school board members Will Pinkston:  As the Nashville School Board member representing upper Antioch and the Percy Priest Lake area, I'm pleased to report that we've arrived at a consensus on the name for the new Antioch Cluster Elementary School on Smith Springs Road. This past week, the school board's Naming of Schools Committee recommended the name "Smith Springs Elementary School." This proposed name, which goes to the full school board for consideration on Tuesday, December 9, is a nod to the history of the area and the result of broad-based neighborhood input as well as recommendations by Councilman Robert Duvall and Councilwoman Karen Y. Johnson. This two-minute animation shows what a cool school it will be. Thanks to everyone who has been patient with the school-siting process. MNPS endeavors to be a good neighbor and operator of world-class schools. We're on the right track.

The new Antioch Cluster Elementary School Groundbreaking Ceremony took place July 23, 2014. The new elementary school in the Antioch Cluster will be located on Smith Springs Road. The new school is being designed with a capacity of 800 students and will open in the 2015-16 school year. The zone for the new school will alleviate overcrowding in Edison and Lakeview Elementary Schools. These changes are consistent with the 10-year plan for Antioch and Cane Ridge clusters and are stage three of the plan that was adopted in July 2010.
