Welcome to MNPS SchoolMatch

We are honored you’ve chosen Metro Nashville Public Schools for your child’s education – a responsibility we take very seriously. We are fully committed to giving every child an excellent education.

Families living in the Nashville metropolitan area have more than 160 public schools available to them in their neighborhoods and nearby communities. MNPS offers a wide variety of academic programs, supports and extracurricular activities in locations across the city to ensure every student has access to a great public education every day.

What are you looking for in your child’s school? Is there a specific educational program you want for your child or a geographic location near work or childcare? Do you need before/after care? Maybe, what’s most important is that your child goes to school in your neighborhood?

MNPS SchoolMatch will help you narrow down your search to just a handful of schools, helping you identify which schools to apply for through the annual School Choice application process – or whether your neighborhood zoned school is the perfect fit and no application is needed.


Step 1: Find a School

Are you looking for your neighborhood zoned school or an optional school? Step 1 will help you with either choice: ZoneFinder will tell you the zoned options based on your address and SchoolMatch will allow you to filter through schools based in certain criteria to help you find the best option for you!

If you are ready to begin looking through our school selection, follow the link below to find a school, or use the menu to navigate.

Step 2: Take a Tour

After you have narrowed your options, school tours are a great way to meet teachers and principals, observe classrooms and learn about academic programs. Information on school tours can be found at www.mnps.org/visit. Please call the school to confirm tour availability and times.

Step 3: Apply for School

Toured your schools? If your zoned school is the choice, you do not need to apply. If you are new to the district, simply enroll at one of our 10 enrollment centers. If you are already enrolled in MNPS, you will automatically advance to the schools you are zoned to attend based on your address.
