OVERVIEW OF THE HARPETH HALL SCHOOL

The Harpeth Hall School is one of the country's premier independent college preparatory schools for girls and young women in grades 5-12. A pioneer in the field of women's education with origins in the 1860s, the school combines a superior program deeply rooted in the liberal arts tradition with proven instructional techniques that are most meaningful for girls. Teachers and administrators cultivate a love of learning, a commitment to honor and integrity, and the leadership skills students will need in the future. This is a vibrant, forward-looking school with a rigorous, innovative curriculum and exceptional teaching. In addition, outstanding and extensive arts, athletics, service learning, and co-curricular activities provide students with a rich educational experience. The strength of the school today results from the extraordinary vitality and richness of its past.

The school is situated on a beautiful, college-like suburban campus of 43 acres in the Green Hills area of Nashville. In 2001, a new 20,000 square foot library opened and serves as the information and technology hub of the school. In 2005, the new Middle School opened, to be followed in 2007 with a new Upper School building. All three bring state-of-the-art teaching methods to the classroom. In 2014, a 60,000-square-foot Athletic and Wellness Center opened. Three campus art studios and a modern photography lab also create a dynamic atmosphere. Excellent athletic facilities include a track, lacrosse, and soccer complex as well as the state's first synthetic turf field for soccer/lacrosse, two gymnasiums, tennis courts, and softball fields.

Harpeth Hall is a national leader in the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning. The campus-wide wireless network was the first in Middle Tennessee. In 1999, Harpeth Hall piloted its one-to-one laptop program. That program expanded to grades 7-12 in 2001 and to grades 5 and 6 in 2005. At every level, the faculty and students use technology to advance learning.

The Harpeth Hall School does not discriminate in hiring or employment practices on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability or any other characteristic protected under applicable state and federal law.
