downtown Nashville, Tennessee. It includes grades 9–12.

	Hume-Fogg's original incarnation, Hume High School, which opened in 1855 on 
Eighth Avenue (Spruce Street) and Broad, was the first public school in Nashville.

	In 1875 Fogg High School became the second public school in Nashville. It was 
built on the same property as Hume High School facing Broad Street. In 1912, 
the two merged into Hume-Fogg at the present site at 700 Broadway in Nashville, 
a Tudor Revival building. The building consists of five floors including the basement, 
which has several tunnels leading to various places around downtown Nashville; 
however, they are currently boarded off and inaccessible, except during Ghost Tours 
held every October by the school's Student Government Association. In 1942 
Hume-Fogg was recast as a Technical and Vocational School.

Nashville's public school system. In that year, Hume-Fogg was again recast as an 
academic magnet school for Nashville's gifted and talented secondary students.

	Hume-Fogg High School was the location for the filming of Taylor Swift's music

	In the 2004–2005 school year, Hume-Fogg celebrated its sesquicentennial 
anniversary.

	In 2008, Hume-Fogg became the second Metro school and first Magnet School 
to have lacrosse.

	In 2010, Hume-Fogg was in the immediate danger of flooding waters that were 
produced at the very start of May. Hume-Fogg, which is locates on Eighth Avenue, 
was very concerned due to the Cumberland River rising into the streets of downtown. 
Hume-Fogg being a school that is over 100 years old has had roof and leaking issues 
for several years. The flood waters stopped and receded only a few blocks away from 
the school and the rain waters did not cause any notable damage to the school. The 
location of Hume-Fogg's graduation was also put into questions as the building which 
traditionally holds their graduation, The Bridgestone Arena, has their basement flooded. 
graduation that year was held on schedule, and in the same location with the quick 
work of the workers at the Arena
