Tiger Strong, Tiger Proud, Tiger Nation!

At McKissack Middle School, we believe in the concept of "Whole Child, Whole School." In that spirit, we offer a strong Community Achieves program, an initiative that connects community partners to families in need. Through this district-wide initiative, we focus on four pillars: college readiness, parent engagement, health and wellness, and social services. Our open-door policy gives families access to a variety of programs such as ACT prep, NAZA (Nashville After Zone Alliance), peer mentoring and more.

McKissack Middle provides opportunities for innovative teaching and learning. All students participate in project-based learning. We also offer three high-school credit courses-Integrated Math, Physical Science and Spanish-as well as Encore, the district's program for gifted learners. Additionally, we make social and emotional learning an integral part of our school.

We have a variety of technology to meet the needs of today's diverse learners. We have more than 330 laptops and 15 Smart Boards. We also offer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs, and our STEM lab will soon be equipped with an interactive television and 3D printer.
