Who It's For

The school primarily serves students in the James Lawson High School cluster and those who live in the James Lawson High School zoned option area. As long as seats are available, any Nashville student may attend. (Because we've been asked: despite the incredible offerings, this is a public school and there's no charge to attend!)

The Pathways

If you are zoned for Lawson cluster elementary schools (Charlotte Park, Gower, Harpeth Valley, and Westmeade) or Lawson cluster middle schools (Bellevue, H.G. Hill), you will automatically be enrolled at Lawson when you reach ninth grade, even if you are currently attending non-Lawson cluster elementary or middle schools. View the cluster map here.

If you live in the Lawson zoned option area, you can view additional information on enrolling here.

Non-Zoned Families

If you live outside the Lawson cluster and outside the zoned option area, you can apply for James Lawson High School through the school options application process or contact 615.259.4636 for additional information.
