  • MHMS is an academic magnet school, students must meet selection criteria (85% in reading, language and math) as determined by our testing done in February.  The following is a timeline of important dates in order to seek enrollment at MHMS.

    • November 1st - applications are available on our website and our campus office.
    • November 1st through January 5th - applications accepted 
    • Jan - those who have turned in application will schedule a testing appointment
    • Saturdays in February (Feb 10th and Feb 17th) - testing will be conducted   *no make-ups without a doctor' excuse
    • March - testing sent off to be scored 
    • Late March / Early April  - you will receive information about your child's status (testing results)
    • April - Public drawing held at SCBOE 

    Enrollment requirements:

    You must be a resident of Sumner County at the time of application.

    Kindergarten applicants must be 5 yrs. old by August 15 

    85% or higher on a nationally normed standardized test in the areas of  reading, language, and math. 

    If applicable, an A/B average on the past two years report cards.

    In an effort to align the MHMS screening process with best practices in the use of data, initial screening results will be considered valid for only a three-year span. When that time limit is reached, students remaining on the waiting list will be reconsidered for entry eligibility by using individual results from the district assessments (TCAP, EOC, TN READY, etc). Students whose scores are not 85% or higher in reading, math, and language on current assessments will be removed from the waiting list.
