Grassland Elementary School is a public school in Williamson County serving approximately 520 students in grades K-5 and located 20 miles south of Nashville, TN. Originally built in 1873, Eagle Pride runs deep. Our present building opened in August 1992. GES staff collaborate to provide instruction that addresses the whole child. We focus on each child's overall well-being through academics, social, emotional, and physical growth. All teachers, support staff and administration create a risk-taking environment for students and families to feel welcome and safe, and to belong in an inclusive environment. Teachers, staff, literacy and math coaches, interventionists. and student support services actively engage students through a multi-tiered approach. At GES, we are Responsible, Respectful and Do Our Best. Our staff participates in ongoing professional development to ensure individualized student growth. We begin each day with Eagle Time (restorative circles) to promote our school family.

Historically, our students consistently test in the top percentiles in TCAP (Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program). We have been recognized twice as a Reward School. At Grassland Elementary, we are a family who grow and learn together. The GSCA (Grassland Community Association) is an integral part of our partnership and school success. Parents and community members support and volunteer in a variety of ways to promote student growth. At Grassland Elementary, we are a family who are lifelong learners. We Are GES!
