College Grove is the hidden gem of Williamson County Schools. I'm so grateful my children have been able to experience going to a public school that has a private school feel! The parent involvement is like no other school. It's a wonderful community of families. It's the best kept secret.

My son is handicapped and in kindergarden at College Grove. The quality and level of care that he receives is excellent. The staff are well trained, friendly, and motivated to teach.

College Grove Elementary is Williamson County's best kept secret. It is like a private school! Class sizes are very small and children get lots of individual attention. Their test scores are some of the highest in the county as well as Tennessee. The teachers and principal care about each student and find a way to help each child succeed. There is a great emphasis placed on Reading and students excel in it. My children love school. Parents are always welcome and will find that they can help in many ways. Music, art, and physical education classes are available and students receive instruction in them each week. Super School!
