LEAD Southeast Middle School joined the LEAD network in 2013 responding to the need for personalized and high-quality instruction in South Nashville and Antioch neighborhoods. LSE Middle School is honored to serve the most diverse student population in Metro Nashville.

By understanding the strengths, needs, and goals of our diverse population, we are better able to educate and serve our community. Our mission each and every day is to create a safe, joyful, and productive classroom environment. LEAD Southeast Middle School students and families are offered additional support including homework help, literacy instruction, and transportation to evening English classes for parents.

With the opening of LEAD Southeast High School, students now have the opportunity to continue in a consistent learning environment until graduation.

Our LEAD Ethos is central to everything we do.

“We are LEADers because we are committed, courageous, disciplined, self-reliant and because we serve others.”

“For me education is the most important thing a person can ever give or receive. It is the foundation from which all else is built. And schools are where the blueprint for life’s success is drawn up. I always tell kids to work hard in school so that they everything they ever wanted is for the taking … big love and big life.”
