    "This school was above and beyond what a normal highschool is. However, it is expensive. Even with scholarships, which I received, it was expensive. It is all academics and sports and less arts. They have a great art programs but kids must seek them out in order to be exposed to them where as sports and academics were mandatory and pronounced parts of daily life. If I have kids and live in Nashville, I might choose the one other public school with equal academic standards, Hume Fogg. Still this Highschool is more like a college with the level its level of performance, what it requires from students, and the community that it builds. It is a wonderful, tiresome, stressfull, and demanding place. Some people burn out and can't handle the pressure to perform. I'm glad I went their and I'm glad it's over. Roll Red!"

    "MBA has the most qualified teaching staff that I have ever encountered at an academic institution let alone a Highschool. Most of the teachers have PHds in their field of study, and if a teacher was not performing to high standards, they were usually helped to reform then, if they didn't improve, we're fired. Most teachers have been teaching their for 10-20 years and have sharpened their teaching abilities over that time. Younger teachers will come and go because they want to switch fields or practice their profession for a living and not as an academic. However, if a teacher stays for 5 or more years usually they will remain their for 15+ more. All of the teachers are very receptive to the students lives in and out of the classroom. Many will attend the sporting events of their students. Some of the coaches also taught which intertwined academic and athletic circles. It would not be a farce to say that every student had a teacher or coach that acted as a mentor. Depending on the subject teaching styles varied. Math teachers who had been teaching for 30+ years never changed their style because Highschool math is not a progressive changing field. I had a German teacher though who had just started who always loved to experiment with teaching styles. Some failed and some worked but he was given the liberty to explore styles and over 4 years his teaching skills improved. I was taught by former NASA scientists, navy colonels and a pro basketball player. The teachers at MBA are amazing because the benefits they receive are also amazing. While their wages are not as high as many public school wages, they receive dental plans, 401k, wage increase with tenoir, and several other benefits. The school makes teaching their a great option for someone who has retired from their field but still want to work before retirement."

    "The teachers always go above and beyond. Their intense burning passion for the subjects they teach inspires students to become eager to learn more."
