I have watched this school undergo major reform and upgrade in leadership over the last 5 years and I know parents who have enrolled their children in the school and are very satisfied with it. I have moved out of state but still support the school because I believe its leaders and teachers give it all their energy and commitment and the community in Nashville needs such a model of excellence. Once back to the Nashville area, the first thing my wife and I will do is visit the school and enroll our children in this great school.

Such a great school! I consider a private magnet school. The ITBS score of my child was very high. They made her love reading and math in her first year at school. She was in a good public school before, but the difference between the two school is like the difference between day and night. At Nashville International Academy, they use the best curriculum available in America for the Common Core Standard

I have my daughter at NIA for two years. She loves being at school and with her friends. Teachers are wonderful and friendly. I highly recommend it for any Muslim family in Nashville.

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.
