Meigs Middle Magnet School Reviews
Great teachers, carpool options, worth the effort
I've had 3 children at Meigs and hope for a 4th. We've experienced all the grade levels. Just like other schools there are good teachers and then even better teachers. Some really go the extra mile to involve the children in what their interests drive them towards. One of the inportant factors is the pathway to Hume Fogg Academic High School. The transportation for us quickly worked out with other in our suburb carpools. We wish you as much success as we've had. The road a good parent takes is paved with love and involvement with their children. Best of luck. Meigs is a great fit for us. Plenty of opportunities for parental involvement too!

Meigs is not only consistently rated as the number one middle school in Nashville, but also one of the best in the state.High test scores and growth scores show that students get a great education.
We were very disappointed in this school. The teachers didn't care, the other kids had attitudes like they didn't care, which I feel came because of the idea that "nothing I do is good enough for the teacher, so why try hard." My daughter's in 8th grade and we will be so glad when it's over! There is a lot of homework, which I have no problem with, but how much of it is anything but busy work is yet to be seen. It takes a lot of energy and work to get her there and back, if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't. She only went there for one year, but I feel she got a much better education from our community school.
