School Description

Warner Elementary has a rich history and a bright future. We will soon celebrate 125 years in our community, having proudly served generations of the same families. Now is an exciting time to look ahead, too, as we prepare to become a Paideia school with a direct pathway to East and Stratford STEM. Paideia (pronounced pie-day-uh) schools provide an education in critical and creative thinking, preparing students to lead full lives as citizens of a democracy.

We are currently a STEM school, teaching with a focus on science and hands-on math. We also teach balanced literacy through English language arts, provide open library access and participate in Nashville Public Library’s Limitless Libraries program, which allows our students to access age-appropriate books from any of Nashville's library branches. Every day, our students also receive instruction in social studies and related arts, which include music, art and physical education. 

Warner is an enhanced option school, meaning we have an extended school day that ends at 3:45 p.m. Students with a passion for music and singing enjoy participating in The Young People’s Freedom Choir, an extracurricular activity offered after school.

Warner facilitates educational field trips, has an active volunteer program and takes full advantage of technology in our classrooms, providing daily computer classes to students. Our faculty works to foster valuable partnerships with Community in Schools, Martha O’Bryan after-school tutoring, East Park after-school care, Reading Clinic, Homework Hotline and a Vanderbilt counselor.

In addition to tutoring services, we extend our support to our families and the community around us by offering English language classes, a clothing closet for families who need assistance with school uniforms and even parent training classes. We enjoy collaborating with our families, community, school staff and students to maintain a welcoming, family atmosphere here at Warner.
