After attending a metro public high school my freshman year, I decided to transfer to Pope. I absolutely loved it. There's a place for everyone. The students and teachers really make you feel welcome and want to get to know you. The teachers will take extra time after school to talk to you and help you understand any material. This school really prepared me for college. As a senior in college, I can honestly say Pope's classes were harder than any of the college courses I have taken. That's a good thing because I have not felt overwhelmed in my college experience so far. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone that is interested in being apart of a true educational and family type community.

It is the best school in the state of Tennessee. My son attended this awesome school for 4 years. Graduating 2014, the teachers are so smart and always helping their students. The headmaster Weber is a great man and had made this school rate very high. The school has so many activities to become a part of. I would refer this school to everyone love God. Thank you God for allowing me to see it through this awesome school.

Outstanding school, with dedicated faculty and staff. My kids loved the place, and they were both challenged through-out. There's a real optimism to this place--what kids are capable of achieving, and for my kids, that optimism was contagious. My son, who had a tendency to "cruise" in his earlier days of high school, became a serious student by the end and even went to Calculus tutorials at 6:45 a.m. in his senior year--voluntarily! I credit the teachers, who are both at the very top of their profession but also seem to love their students and pull the best out of them. Top rated school. Recommend it without conditions.

Exactly what a private school should be. Challenging and geared towards college prep. Great caring teachers ! Send your child here and sleep easily when they are freshmen in college.

I currently Attend a Public school. If PJPHS had been in the International Baccalaureate I would have signed up for this school. I am a proud roman catholic, but a public school has this extremely great program better than a Private school? that is ridiculous.

Best school in the entire state. Worth every penny of tuition for an outstanding education. Pulbic school systems cannot offer what this high school can.

Most integrated private school in the greater Nashville area, I think. Solid curriculum, demanding but caring teachers. My two children have really been happy there even though they've been made to work hard. Best programs: Math, Science and Chorus.

Tremendous school. My child is a freshman. As part of the freshman year program, my child's advisor asked to meet with me simply to find out what made my child 'tick' and invited me to contact her at any time. My child has really thrived there. They have an excellent faculty and a variety of activities for kids to get involved in. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Fantastic school....I have a son who is a junior and he has excellent, caring teachers who challenge him. Their AP program is especially strong--they had 28 scores of '5' in A.P. Calculus last year!

My daughter attended this school for two years, after which, not only has she felt academically decellerated, she also has had to enroll in several extracurricular activities in order to maintain a decent level of basic understanding in areas of her interest.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
