Welcome to Our School

Principal

Welcome to Rosebank STEM School! We’re striving to be the most desired neighborhood school in East Nashville, and we’re making great progress toward that goal. Building renovations are underway, as is the implementation of our new STEM program.

Everything parents know and love about Rosebank will continue to be a priority for us. That includes our emphasis on social and emotional learning, community building and restorative justice practices so all students feel welcomed and loved at Rosebank. We’ve renewed our commitment to the visual and performing arts. We’re also seeing an increase in family and community involvement, thanks in part to new business partnerships and a newly elected PTO. 

In short, we are so excited about the future of Rosebank and what we can offer our students and families. Welcome to the Rosebank STEM School family!
