Nashville School Ranks #1 in Tennessee

This post is taken from the Nashville Post, but I thought it was worth sharing to all those people that are considering moving to the Nashville area, and have an interest in the public and private schools compared to the rest of the nation.

The U.S. News & World Report has just made public its eagerly awaited annual ranking of the top public high schools in the USA. The good news for Nashville is that Hume-Fogg Academic, which souunds like an traditional old English school from the 1930's, was actually voted as #1 in Tennessee for public schools. Hume-Fogg was actually ranked 49 in the whole nation of schools which is pretty impressive.

What's also good to know that in Tennessee Nashville, Brentwood and Hendersonville accounted for 4 out of the top 5 spots. Here are the top five rankings

  1. Fogg Hume (Nashville)
  2. Martin Luther King, Jr. Academic Magnet High School (Nashville)
  3. Merrol Hyde Magnet School (Hendersonville TN)
  4. Brentwood High School (Brentwod TN)
  5. Farragut High School (Knoxville)
This actually shows what a well balanced educational system the Greater Nashville area has  and I think will be of comfort to anyone who is concerned about the school system here.

"U.S. News & World Report has released its annual ranking of the top public high schools in the nation. Coming in at No. 49 nationally and No. 1 in Tennessee was Nashville's Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School. Ranked No. 80 nationally was Martin Luther King Academic Magnet, which was the statewide runner-up.
