Message from Lou L.

Hello, my name is Lou L Tate and I would like to personally welcome you to Tate's School. It has always been my goal to provide an exceptional educational experience for children that surpasses anything else in the area. Selecting the right combination of teachers, students, curriculum, campus aesthetics, and extra curricular programs has helped us to create an educational refuge that fits the needs of both students and parents.

By creating a selective environment we can bring out the full potential of like-minded students, eliminate negative influences, which interfere with teacher effectiveness, offer parents a safe environment for their children, and provide the academic challenges that are essential for further achievement.

At Tate’s, we emphasize two major themes with our student body: the development of academic excellence and the evolution of sound moral character. As a result, I am proud to say that our students are among the brightest academic minds in the area who are learning how to become responsible, accountable young men and women.

Through a caring, nurturing atmosphere our teachers encourage students to tap into their natural curiosity in order to learn and advance at their own pace. Our student-centered approach provides the best foundation for a lifetime of learning and achievement, and positions our students to excel in other learning environments – and in life. Our commitment to strong, advanced academics, small class size, personalized instruction, and character development is what makes Tate's School the right choice for hundreds of families throughout Knoxville and surrounding communities.

Signed, Lou L. Tate
