Metro Nashville Public School officials announced Monday that Stephanie Knight has been named the new leader of Hillsboro High School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.

Knight replaces Mary Catherine Bradshaw, whose controversial transfer from Hillsboro to Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet High School drew local media headlines earlier this year.

Knight currently teaches IB and advanced placement Spanish at Hillsboro. She assumes the new position effective immediately.

“I am motivated to continue the work that the faculty and administration has already begun to grow participation in the [diploma program] and to integrate [diploma program] classes across all academies.”

It's amazing the fuss that was made out of this one position., No one person
is irreplaceable within a school system, from superintendent on down!

Stephanie Knight is an awesome teacher and I think that Hillsboro IB program will continue to thrive with her at the head. Mary Catherine only surrounded herself with great minds and Knight was one of those great minds!!! Finally, some good news coming from Green Hills, let's support her and move towards getting more good news published. Go Burros!!!!!

does metro have high schools other than hume-fogg and mlk?, wow.... who knew, thanks for the article. I hope this start up school does well! if this school does well, maybe the school board should approve other high schools, as a city of this size needs more than 2 high schools.
