In the U.S., one student drops out of school every 12 seconds.
That's a lot of students so far this school year.

School Overview

Nashville Big Picture High School opened in August 2007. We offer a rigorous, highly personalized curriculum that combines academic work with real-world experiences and project-based learning. Students are active and accountable in their own education, and are still required to take all assessments required by No Child Left Behind. Some students do well in a traditional high school setting; however, we know there are many students who would do better in a smaller, more individualized program. NBPHS is one of several programs MNPS is offering to provide our students and their families choices regarding which educational approach is best for them.
