Dr. Hank Staggs

Welcome to Crieve Hall, one of Tennessee's best elementary schools. Crieve Hall is a safe learning community that embraces diversity, strives for excellence, and inspires each individual to love learning. Parents and staff love Crieve Hall because it feels like a small neighborhood school, despite enrolling nearly 500 students from over 10 countries and speaking more than 20 different languages! We accomplish this through our strong partnerships with our PTA, our families, and our community.

Consistent high performing student achievement and deeply invested teachers have created an enduring reputation as a great place for the children of Nashville. I am so proud of all the hard work our award-winning teachers, loving staff, involved parents, generous PTA, community partners, and engaged students that make Crieve Hall a school where many of our faculty and staff bring their own children. Please feel free to visit us to experience the Crieve Hall family for yourself!


Welcome From Our Assistant Principal

Brandi Nunnery, Assistant Principal


Hello!  I'm Brandi Nunnery and I am honored to serve as Crieve Hall's Assistant Principal.  I echo Dr. Staggs' comments above and join him in celebrating our wonderfully diverse community of students, teachers, staff, and parents.  

I am the proud parent of a Crieve Hall alumna and current Overton freshman! I love the fact that my daughter is experiencing a truly wonderful public school experience in a large, urban district.  

A little about me:  This is my 26th year in education.  I've taught 1st grade and English as a Second Language in 1st-5th grades, as well as serving as a Literacy Coach and MNPS District Lead Literacy Coach.  In my free time, you can find me on my Peloton or seeing a Broadway show. 

I love meeting the families of our students ! If you'd like to volunteer here at school or have any questions, I'm here for YOU!
