School Description

Glencliff High School is one of the most diverse schools in Tennessee. There are more than 37 different nationalities and 27 languages represented in our student population. That diversity makes Glencliff a very unique and exciting community in which to teach and learn. Our International Day is by far one of our most exciting events, where each nationality can showcase its food, culture and costume. 

Our four Academies—the Freshman Academy, the Academy of Medical Science and Research (AMSR), the Ford Academy of Business and Innovation (FABI), and the Hands on Nashville Academy for Environmental and Urban Planning (EUP)—provide unique experiences for our students that will prepare them for college or career. Students can get skills in courses like webpage design, engineering and medical terminology. They can participate in our dual-credit program with National State Community College to earn credits in personal finance, medical terminology and agricultural science. 

Our award-winning Culinary Arts program is one of our most popular programs. Twice a month students provide lunches to our faculty in our Southern Tea Room to get experience in developing a menu, budgeting, cooking and serving. Our students regularly compete at district, state and national levels, and the past two years have won the top state award. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year we will begin offering Automotive Maintenance and Lite Repair as new pathway to the Hands on Nashville Academy for Environmental and Urban Planning.

Outside of the academies, Glencliff offers advanced placement (AP) classes and special college-prep support (AVID) for students who have college aspirations and are in the academic middle.

There are many other opportunities for students to participate in field trips, competitions and practical experience. Our business partners extend opportunities to our students to participate in career fairs, job shadowing and internships, and there are also various sports teams and clubs.

Glencliff High School

Glencliff Comprehensive High School is an American public school in Nashville, Tennessee . It was built in 1957 and added onto in 1977.

According to the 1963 Roundup (school yearbook), the area in which Glencliff High School is located was until recent years fertile farmland lying on the outskirts of Nashville. This section remained largely unpopulated until the late 1950s, at which time industrial expansion and metropolitan growth led to extensive residential development, which yet continues to characterize this area. Dominated by such industrial and commercial establishments as AVCO, Aladdin Industries , and the Municipal Airport , the area inevitably grew, attracting secondary businesses, churches, schools, and finally a high school.

Glencliff High School takes its name from the Glencliff Estate . The site of the school is a part of the original property of one of Nashville’s oldest families, W. A. Woodroof. The Glencliff Mansion , which is still standing on what is the Mill Creek Valley Road (old name) or Antioch Pike (new name), was the home of that family. The house predates the American Civil War , and within the vicinity of it General Buell amassed his forces during the Battle of Nashville .

Glencliff High School for the first time in 1957 opened its doors to receive 350 seventh and eighth graders and 13 faculty members. Five years later, the spring of 1962, the first senior class composed of 125 members was graduated. The school now has a student body of around 1,400 students and 80 faculty members.

Glencliff High School is one of the most diverse schools in Tennessee . There are more than 42 different nationalities and 26 languages represented in its student population. It has four academies — the Freshman Academy, the Academy of Medical Science and Research (AMSR), the Ford Academy of Business and Innovation (FABI), and the Hands on Nashville Academy for Environmental and Urban Planning (HONEUP). Students are taught skills in courses like webpage design, engineering and medical terminology. They can participate in the dual-credit program with National State Community College to earn credits in personal finance, medical terminology and agricultural science.

The culinary arts program is one of Glencliff’s most popular programs. Twice a month students provide lunches to our faculty in the Southern Tea Room to get experience in developing a menu, budgeting, cooking and serving. Students regularly compete at district, state and national levels.

Outside of the academies, Glencliff offers advanced placement (AP) classes and special college-prep support (AVID) for students who have college aspirations and are in the academic middle.

There are opportunities for students to participate in field trips, competitions and practical experience. Business partners extend opportunities to students to participate in career fairs, job shadowing and internships, and there are also various sports teams and clubs.
