School Description

Harpeth Valley prides itself on achieving high academic standards for all students. For the 2013-2014 school year, Harpeth Valley was recognized as a Reward school by the state of Tennessee, and in subsequent years, we have ranked among the top elementary schools in the district. 

Harpeth Valley teachers are masters of their craft, constantly looking for new and innovative ways to enrich the curriculum and strengthen their instructional skills. They put student success and love of learning at the forefront of each day. But they don’t act alone—parents are not only supportive of Harpeth Valley’s enriched curriculum, but they also have ample opportunity to participate, whether directly in our classrooms or through a variety of active PTO committees. 

Harpeth Valley offers a wide range of opportunities to extend learning beyond the standard Tennessee state curriculum. The PTO utilizes the school garden to host a Garden Club after school, and classroom teachers also incorporate the school garden into classroom lessons. And each year our 4th-grade students present the “Wax Museum,” the culmination of an extensive study of an important historical figure chosen by the student. Students dress up as their historical figure and share information in a first-person account. Students also participate in Accelerated Reader as a means to encourage goal setting and increase their love of reading. Harpeth Valley also offers Encore, the district’s program for gifted and talented learners.
