A campaign by local parents to help our schools & communities reach their full potential

What's Going On

Hillwood High School was built beginning in 1953 before undergoing ten additions that made it the structure it is today. Old, awkwardly laid out, and with a host of electrical and other issues, Hillwood is near the top of Metro Schools' priorities for being renovated or rebuilt.

The deep problems with the building would make renovation nearly as expensive as rebuilding--and ineffective at solving some of the issues.

As a result the School Board voted to rebuild the high school and do it at a location most convenient to its student population, just off I-40 in Bellevue.

The new state-of-the-art building will provide students throughout the Hillwood cluster - and those who live elsewhere but wish to take advantage of the high school - a safe, modern setting to learn and grow and prepare for the next stage in their lives.

Where It Stands

In 2017, the mayor and Metro Council allocated funds to purchase land being vacated by HopePark Church. In 2018, they allocated funds to do sitework. That work - the demolition of the church and preparation of the land for building - is nearly complete.

The next step will be securing funding for this important project from Mayor Cooper and the Metro Council.

Officials from Metro Nashville Public Schools shared plans for the new school with the community. Here's the video tour:
