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. 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 2010 school year. Click on the school to see homes currently zoned for that school.

Elementary schools

Rutland in Mt Juliet currently servicing Providence is 216

Williamson county average is 257

State average is 198

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 childs future depends on it.

Here are the Williamson county middle school scores.

  • Brentwood                   290
  • Woodland                     272
  • Poplar Grove              264
  • Grassland                     260
  • Heritage                        244
  • Sunset                            244
  • Freedom                       239
  • Fairview                        238

West Wilson Middle in Mt Juliet servicing Providence is 203

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

Williamson county high schools are scored by the ACT tests

Wilson county high in Mt Juliet servicing Providence is 20.2

The average for Williamson county high schools is     23.4

The average for Davidson county (Nashville) is            18.2

The state average is                                                                    19.1

Rutherford county average                                                    19.7

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 10 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.
