Arizona based Great Hearts Academy announced on Wednesday the school will not reapply to build a new charter school in west Nashville.
Officials for the charter school said that a constructive partnership with Metro schools is not possible.
Metro-Nashville school officials rejected Great Hearts' application on more than one occasion earlier this year citing a lack of diversity plan.
Metro lost millions of state tax dollars for rejecting the application.
