Episcopal School of Nashville

resides on the historic site of the Ross School Building at 1310 Ordway Place in the heart of East Nashville.

In searching for the right location to open our school, we wanted a place that was in the heart of the East Nashville community but that was also easily accessible to Nashville residents citywide.

August 1, 2020, Episcopal School of Nashville signed a lease to the historic Ross Building at 1310 Ordway Place. As we entered our fifth school year, ESN was excited for this transition.

The former Ross School on Ordway Place is East Nashville’s oldest surviving school building, maintaining classic architecture from the beginning of the twentieth century. This building began serving families in the Lockeland Springs neighborhood in 1908, and we hope to continue to serve families from this neighborhood and beyond.

Nashville Classical Charter School moved from Ross school in the summer of 2019, leaving the facility unoccupied. Anticipating our need for more room and the requirement by MDHA that we move from Woodland Street, Episcopal School of Nashville began seeking acceptable property, with an eye toward our commitment to remain in East Nashville. When Founding Head of School, Harrison Stuart saw this building, it was clear this was the Purple Martins’ new home.

The biggest reason for our move in the summer of 2020 was the school’s success and growth. Episcopal School of Nashville has continued to mature each year and this building empowers us to continue this success.

“This giant leap for ESN represents 7 years of herculean efforts from staff, faculty, supporters, and trustees, as well as the leadership and belief of Metro Council members. I am so proud of our little school for making this big move to our new home at East Nashville’s historic Ross School building.” – Ketch Secor, Board Co-Chair, Episcopal School of Nashville
