Welcome From the Principal
Welcome to Hermitage Elementary, the first Cambridge Primary School in Tennessee! In addition to offering this internationally developed curriculum, we pride ourselves on being a family- and student-centered school. Our mission is to work together to ensure all Lions learn at high levels and are ready for middle school and life beyond.
We intend to make Hermitage the best choice for families by providing relevant learning opportunities to help our students become Responsible, Innovative, Confident, Engaged, and Reflective. I’d love to help you learn more about our great school. Please schedule or visit or contact us for more information.
Hermitage Elementary is the first and only Cambridge Primary School in our state. By beginning their education at Hermitage Elementary, students in the Donelson area can now experience an internationally developed curriculum that fosters inquiry, problem-solving and next-level thinking throughout their educational pathway. The Cambridge curriculum is already in place at Donelson Middle Prep and McGavock High School.
In addition to this advanced program that all students participate in, we offer a well-rounded education that meets and exceeds the requirements of the school district and state.
Parents love that our school is welcoming and open. Parents can join us anytime and are encouraged to partner with us to make learning an ongoing process for their child. Our resources for parents include frequent communication, parent-teacher conferences, academic data meetings, parenting seminars, financial training and a food bank.
