Introduction to the Arts at USN

University School of Nashville has a long-standing commitment to the arts. From kindergarten until graduation, students at USN enjoy a wealth of opportunities in both the visual and performing arts. 

All lower and middle school students participate in the visual arts program, and more than half of high school students take a visual arts class each semester. The work of these young artists is shown in our Main, Meacham, and Tibbott Center Galleries. The 19,000 square foot Christine Slayden Tibbott Center provides state of the art facilities for study in the visual arts, grades five through twelve.

The performing arts department offers students a wide array of opportunities in vocal and instrumental music, dance and theatre in an atmosphere where talents are nurtured. Lower and middle school curricula also require participation in the performing arts, and when they reach high school many students continue to explore the performing arts: Concert and Pep Band, Jazz Band, Show Choir, Dance Team, String Ensemble, and Theatre attract students throughout high school. Students are encouraged to accept new challenges. We hope to send students into the world as lifelong learners who embrace the arts with passion.
