Nashville School Still Trying To Recover After 2010 Flood

CREATED Jan 17, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In the three and a half years since the historic May flood of 2010, many Nashville neighborhoods have rebuilt. But in West Nashville, there's a private school that's still  trying to stay afloat.

  Nashville Christian School took an enrollment hit after the flood and is still trying to recover.

Although the school received minimal damage many of the students home were directly hit.

  The school cut teacher jobs, made budget sacrifices for tuition rates all so that programs weren't sacrificed.  

"Coupled with the flood, we were in a recession and both of those factors impacted our enrollment. Maybe not the first year initially but the second and two years out of recession and job loss and flood.," said NCS President Connie Jo Shelton.

  As part of the school's admissions plan, prospective students are allowed to shadow a day or two.  

Since Christmas break, 16 new kids enrolled.  

An open house is planned next Sunday, January 26th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the school's campus. They are located at 7555 Sawyer Brown Road in Nashville.
