The Chattanooga School for the Arts & Sciences is a K-12 magnet school in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was opened in 1986 in the former Wyatt Hall building, which was used as a high school until 1983. The building was built in 1920–1921 and designed by Reuben H. Hunt, a Chattanooga architect.[2] Its liberal-arts curriculum is patterned on the 'Paideia' philosophy of Mortimer Adler. The school building has been a school in several incarnations, and was once attended by Samuel L. Jackson (as Riverside High School).

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
