    For forty-six years, Tate's School has successfully prepared children to meet above grade challenges and expectations at the elementary school level.  As we near our 50-year anniversary, we reflect on our successes and look forward to the future. As we look ahead, we see an increased need for schools with a strong foundation in character development, accelerated academics and a safe social environment. With this in mind, we have decided to embark on an exciting expansion of our facilities. In the next three years, Tate's School will grow to include a new middle school including grades 6, 7 and 8. We are excited about this expansion and we look forward to serving our students further into their academic experience.

Welcome to Tate's School


Tate's School is an independent, private day school that has been serving the Knoxville area since 1968. Tate’s School is rooted in offering an accelerated, 21st-century curriculum that instills academic excellence in our students. We guide our students to reach their optimum potential intellectually, physically, and socially. Each student is challenged to think critically and creatively in a structured environment where excellence is rewarded and individual effort is encouraged.  Utilizing our extensive, 52 acre campus as an extension of our classrooms, our curriculum includes personal experience, hands-on activities, and collaborative learning. Tate's School is blessed to have a caring, enthusiastic, well-educated faculty and staff who are dedicated to assisting our students with their intellectual development, and empowering the students to become successful, productive, accountable young men and women of sound character and reputation.
We invite you to browse through our website and become more familiar with who we are and what we can do for you and your child.
