    Nashville Splash Pad and Pool Roundup! Summer 2018
    Allow me to reveal something that may render you speechless: I do not love summer. Every year I ready myself with pep-talks and a mini fan for the inevitable sweat bath as Nashville's humidity covers me like a wet blanket. Mercifully, the middle TN area is packed with pools, water parks, and splash pads galore!

  • University School Of Nashville reviewed by a student

    I've been at this school for 13 years, and in the past few years things have changed for the worst. Administration does not take responsibility for wrongdoing, they don't know how to handle students with mental illness, when something goes wrong with a student, don't expect much from the head of high school or any of the administration. They don't care. All they care about is their image, and they are willing to do anything to protect it.
