Williamson County Schools Comparison

WIlliamson county school

This is a picture of the newest Williamson county school in Spring Hill

Williamson County Schools are again the top schools in Tennessee, and the top elementary schools in the Nashville area once again are in Brentwood followed closely by Franklin schools. I’ve combined the TCAP scores for each area of testing Math/Reading/Science/social studies, and created a spread sheet for easy comparison. By the way, the Tennessee department of education gives all of the schools in Williamson county a grade of “A”.

You can visit the Tennessee Department of education for information on schools not in the list. http://edu.reportcard.state.tn.us/pls/apex/f?p=200:30:4088028706987393::NO:::

Elementary school and middle schools use tcap scores, high schools use act scores. These are from the 2012 school year. Click on the school to see homes currently zoned for that school.

Elementary schools

Rutland in Mt Juliet currently servicing Providence is 230

Williamson county average is 269

State average is 206

Davidson county average (Nashville) 172

As you can see, the scoring average for Williamson county elementary schools is much higher than the state average and fairly trounces Nashville schools. How big is the difference? If it were a report card grade it’s the difference between an “A” and a “D”.

If schools matter to you, decide that before you start looking for homes, your child’s future depends on it.

Here are the Williamson county middle school scores.

West Wilson Middle in Mt Juliet servicing Providence is 220

I don’t have averages by state and county for Middle Schools, but you can expect the same comparisons as the elementary schools

The average for Williamson county high schools is 23.1

The average for Davidson county (Nashville) is 18.4

The state average is 19.2

Wilson county average 19.9

Williamson County Schools average over 20 percent better test scores than their neighbors to the north in Davidson county, and 15 percent better than Rutherford county and Wilson county. Within Williamson county the two Brentwood high schools are another 10 percent better even than the Franklin and Spring Hill schools, and a full 30 percent better than Davidson county schools and 20 percent better than the state average. If you don’t think 20 percent matters, then don’t complain when your child gets an average score on their report card.

    Great info on Williamson County Schools. Spring Hill is about to explode once they open up the 8 full lanes on I-65 in the next few months. We also enjoy the incredible school system that Williamson County provides. Can’t wait to see more of your business out here Larry

      You are correct Van, and the schools in Spring Hill, at least the ones on the Williamson county side have caught up to the schools in Franklin, I believe because the Spring Hill parents have resisted every plan to build apartments. If they stay committed, they will continue to have some of the best public schools anywhere


  1. […] the Tennessee’s best school system and lower property taxes than it’s surrounding counties, it’s easy to see why […]
