Williamson County Schools ranked 3rd best in the State.

by Rod Williams, Oct. 19, 2023- Niche is an organization that connects colleges and schools with students and families. As part of that process, they evaluate the quality of schools of every school district. The schools are ranked based on an analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education, according to Niche.

“Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, teacher quality, public school district ratings, and more,” Niche’s website states. “SAT/ACT scores have been removed from this year’s rankings to reflect a general de-emphasis on test scores in the college admissions process.”

In their recent ranking the best school district in Tennessee is Maryville, followed by Alcoa, followed by Williamson County at third place.

Wilson County School District scores 12th best schools, Rutheford County Schools are 13th best, and Sumner County is 17th best. Only school systems earning a letter grade of A or B are numerically ranked. 

Among the large school systems, Knox County is 25th best school system in the State, and Hamilton County is 41st. Metro Nashville Public Schools is unranked and receives a letter grade of B- and Shelby County Schools receive a letter grade of C+.

Of Nashville Public Schools, the report says that according to state test scores, 12% of students are at least proficient in math and 19% in reading. By comparison, next door in Williamson County, 58% of students are at least proficient in math and 59% in reading.
