Williamson County school rankings – as a realtor, I get this question a lot by parent who want to move their children into the best school they can find or afford, I have been consistent with my answer, and here it is.

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.

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”.
