As if there was any doubt that our staff at Neely's Bend: A LEAD Public School aren't fired up for the new school year, the team of educators brought energy, excitement and love for their school at the first-ever Roll Call competition held during the first day of last week's LEAD Summit 2016.

A panel of four student judges from across the network agreed, naming the Neely's Bend team champion over our other campuses, Brick Church, LEAD Southeast, Cameron and LEAD Academy, as well as the network's support office. 

Anyone who has walked the halls of Neely's Bend understands the passion our teachers bring each and every day for all of our students so that they are in the best position possible to be prepared with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and in life. We can't wait for the 2016-2017 school year to begin on Wednesday, August 3 as we welcome sixth-grade into the fold.

To enroll, please contact our family engagement coordinator, Mr. Jeremy Quinonez, at or via phone at (615) 584-5631. For our staff members courage and commitment, all LEADers shoutout!
