Pearl-Cohn Summer demo students, producers, and engineers

Metro students Lagnajita Mukhopadhyay, Jevon and Jordan Donaldson, and Ariell Pryor had the opportunity to work with well-known Nashville musicians to cut artist demos in Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High’s studio. This comes on the heels of Music Makes Us and Warner Music Nashville providing two week summer internships for 20 Pearl-Cohn students, where they learned about the record business first-hand.

Dave Pomeroy, bassist and president of the American Federation of Musicians, along with drummer Craig Krampf, keyboardist Jim “Moose” Brown, and guitarist Gary Burnette provided tracks for the demos. Studio production services were provided by Bob McCracken, audio production teacher at Pearl-Cohn, assisted by Warner Music interns Mario Rosales, Deon’te Jones, Luis Trejo, and Vincent Zirker. At the end of the recording session, each of the students gets a mix of their song. This is the first effort of the new student-run record label at Pearl-Cohn to introduce itself to Metro students who dream of becoming recording artists.

A good time was had by all!


More options than ever before.
More opportunities to see those options first hand.
More schools and programs that are as unique as your child.

The Fall Application is so much more than a name change.

Open the Doors to Your Child's FutureWhat used to be called the Lottery is now the Fall Application. It’s the time when families start looking at which school their children will attend in 2012-13. This year Metro Schools is proud to offer 31 diverse school options to families that meet students’ unique interests and needs. These schools are located all over Nashville, offering distinct schedules, programs, teaching styles, and more.

You and your child choose the right fit.

Is your son interested in science and technology? There are schools for him. Does your daughter have a flair for the arts? There are schools for her, too. There are schools for students who ask a lot of questions and for students who enjoy hands-on or project-based learning; schools for high school students who want to graduate early or students who want to work outside of the classroom. We have options for everyone.

We’ll guide you through the options.

The Fall Application period opens on November 7, but you can get started right now. Our Fall Application website can guide you through all of the options and help you find the best ones for your child. Our Customer Service Center can also help you through the process.

But the best way to learn about our schools is the old fashioned way: visiting schools and talking to educators. There are plenty of opportunities to do just that, starting on November 7 at the Fall Application Kick-off Event at IT Creswell Arts Magnet (3500 John Mallette Drive, 37218). There you can meet representatives from nearly three dozen schools, learn about their programs and offerings, and even apply on the spot. Schools will also hold walk-throughs and tours to give you a firsthand look at your child’s options. Contact the school to see when they will be offering tours.

Selection Day

Selection Day (formerly known as Lottery Day) is January 7 at the Martin Professional Development Center (2400 Fairfax Avenue, 37212). The selection process has been streamlined using the display technology available at the Martin Center, making it an easier and more enjoyable event for parents. Representatives from various schools will also be on hand to offer information during the selection process.

It’s a lot to take in, but that’s only because we have a lot to offer. We are proud of the options available to Metro Schools’ families and we will help you find just the right one.

Tickets for the evening performance are $10 for adults and $5 for students.


Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School has been named a 2011 Blue Ribbon School. The school currently ranks among Tennessee’s Top 10% in academic achievement and was awarded in the category of High Performing School.

In a press release issued by the U.S. Department of Education, Secretary Arne Duncan says, “America's long-term economic prosperity and civic engagement depends on our children receiving a world-class education," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. "National Blue Ribbon Schools are committed to accelerating student achievement and preparing students for success in college and careers. Their success is an example for others to follow."

The release also states that a total of 305 schools across the U.S. were named 2011 National Blue Ribbon Schools. Schools can be awarded for academic excellence or for success in closing the achievement gap. All schools, 256 public and 49 private, will be honored at an awards ceremony Nov. 14-15 in Washington, D.C.


Students enrolled at Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Industry Magnet High School will be greeted with some new artwork when they return in the fall. Brianna Lockett and Mario Rosalas, rising juniors, and their teacher Warren Riker spent a week of their summer break drawing and painting a mural that spans the entire length of one hallway.
