Williamson County Schools were ranked number one in the country by schooldigger.com for the higher composite ACT score in the nation

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 Williamson county schools 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 zoned for that school.
