Have you tried to use the "Research and Compare" feature here at Greatschools, up on the green menu bar near the top of the page? You can enter your city/state or zip, and get some basic information.

Yes I have read everything I can on that site. Thanks. I would love to speak with parent and from schools there. There are so many schools to pick from. Do you know a site for that? thank you.

This Greatschools community is relatively "new" and the chance of finding someone from a specific town/area is small. You could try to start your own "new Group" and see if anyone else joins, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

If I were you, after you get the names of a few good schools from the "Research and Compare" part of this site, I might try to look at http://www.ratemyteachers.com site and see what kinds of specific comments people make about teachers at certain schools. You might also try to contact local real estate agents and see what they have to say about schools in different neighborhoods. I believe there's also a site that lists "Blue Ribbon Schools" and I'll try to locate that for you....

Here's a link I found that shows a list of all schools awarded Blue Ribbon status through 2002, by state: http://www.ed.gov/searchResults.jhtml?oq=blue+ribbon+schools+%7C+nashville+TN&odq=blue+ribbon+schools+%7C+nashville+TN&rq=1&tx=nashville&GO+-+Submit+Search.x=17&GO+-+Submit+Search.y=9

There's probably a more current list, but I don't have a lot of time to search

We have a great public school system here in Nashville. I suggest areas such as Green Hills, Belle Meade, Sylvan Park. But all of the schools are just as good as the involvement parents have. I love Sumner county too. It is just north of Nashville. It is a beautiful lake area and was rated high as a place to raise your children. If you want to ask me questions y e-mail is madhouse 25@hotmail.com
